Re: Old Tony Commercial

I love watching any of his commercials, but of these 4 the last one has to be my favorite.

Re: Old Tony Commercial

I'd love to have been there just to see expressions from people. Just wonder how many knew it was him during his time he was there working.

Me too. Of course back during some of his commercials I probably wouldn't have known who it was. Because back then I wasn't into racing and from what little I had heard about the drivers, I'm ashamed to say this, but he was one I didn't like. My how times have changed, lol.

Love these. I hadn't seen the full 2+ minute Burger King commercial before. That was awesome!

So... it reminded me of this

It's kind of funny, about 7-8 years ago I was in Bakersfield Ca, attending
the Famous March Meet at Famoso Dragways. Three of us had left the
track one evening to go out to dinner. We were in a local restaurant,
I was wearing a Home Depot, Tony Stewart team jacket.

Now, mind you, we were in a town, for the moment filled with
Drag Racing fans. Further, there were other racing venues going on
simultaneously at the local dirt track.

So, we are walking into the restaurant, and as I pass by, a guy sitting there
says "How can you stand to be seen in Public with that jacket on"..????
My answer then, as now was simple......"Well, lemme see..... Several
USAC Midget and Sprint titles, First Ever Triple Crown winner, pole sitter
at Indianapolis 500, Indy Car Champion, 2 time NASCAR Champion......."

"So.... who is your favorite driver..??.... AND.. how is he doin..????"

I do not remember if he answered....and if he did... do not remember
who it was......

But that memory still jumps into mind whenever I spot that jacket
hanging in the closet.
1994 USAC Midget Champion ** 1995 USAC Midget Champion ** 1995 USAC Sprint Car Champion ** 1995 USAC Silver Crown Champion
1997 Indy Car Champion ** 2006 IROC Champion ** 2002 NASCAR Champion ** 2005 NASCAR Champion ** 2011 NASCAR Champion

Re: Old Tony Commercial

I became a fan of Tony's after I started reading articles about him and got to thinking that maybe he's not as bad as I thought. Yeah, I know he gets sarcastic, but don't we all? Sometimes you got to take the bad with the good. None of us are perfect. I will admit the 1st that I would cheer for was Ricky Rudd and that was only because he was from the same town I grew up in. Then the next one I cheered for was Jeff Gordon and the reason for that was that people at work decided to root for a NASCAR driver to get the residents into the friendly rivalry and I felt sorry for Jeff, plus his number was my extension, lol.
