Nascar Coaster Commerical

Monday, January 10, 2005 6:43 AM
Hey everyone, last night I was watching the Vikings and the Packers game. During the commerical break they had an ad for nascar. The commerical had a POV of a wooden coaster at the beginning and a shot of some wooden roller coaster at the end. Has anyone else seen this commerical?

No, but I've seen that instant classic of the Michael Vick Expirence. I wanted to ride that so bad. Looks like a blast!

That commercial was pretty cool. If only they could really race on a track like a coaster. I could see it. "He doesn't have enough speed going through the loop." Nice commercial though.

The NASCAR commercial make the Michael Vick Experience look like a Merry-Go-Round.

Great game by the Vikings by the way, I hate GB, anyways, the commercial was sweet, I was telling my wife if they could build a coaster like that, that would be intense (Nascar cars on a 4-6 lane track), wowsers.

I saw that commercial during football too. I thought it was a neat concept for a commercial.

The funny thing is, as soon as I saw that commercial, I instantly knew it would become posted here. Wow, am I pyschic or what? ;) *** Edited 1/10/2005 7:21:32 PM UTC by Coasterbuzzer***

I'm sure if you keep watching FOX you should have no trouble seeing it. It was basically a promo for the Daytona 500 in Feb.

I want to see the Philip Rivers Experience. Constant pacing the sidelines, watching Drew Brees take the Chargers to the playoffs...

Having not seen the commercial, I'm inclined to ask: Does anyone know what coaster the footage was shot from? (I'm also a little surprised no one asked in this thread yet :) )

Though it was made to look like a roller coaster, the absence of up-stops makes it technically more of a Mt. Olympus Park-esque go-kart track. Nit-pickiness aside, the entire thing looked computer generated to me. But maybe I wasn't paying attention well enough for the first few seconds.

IIRC, it was a computer generated coaster that was part woodie, part mega-looper. I'm pretty sure I saw wood track and steel track (not just steel structure).

It did look pretty nifty, though.

Yes, I got it from there. I found it quite amusing...

I was being sarcastic Talon, I also read that on ESPN and got a kick out of it, if I knew how to put smiley's up that might have helped.

As much as I'd hate to see the Hurricane go, if they redevelop the MB Pavillion, aren't they planning on a real NASCAR coaster?
