Mobil 1 and Tony Stewart — Smoke to most of us — are up to a whole new bag of tricks with their commercials. This time around, they borrowed the plot of one of every car buff’s favorite classic car flicks, Smokey and the Bandit. As expectedl, Tony plays the Bandit — a role once reserved only for Burt Reynolds — and he is driving a Trans Am nearly identical to the 1976 Trans Am that originally starred in the movie.
So far, Mobil 1 has released three episodes videos of the six-part series and a trailer. If you’ve watched the original Smokey and the Bandit movies, you will appreciate a lot of the scenes that are nearly identical to the original. If you have not seen the original movie yet, I suggest picking it up and watching it before checking out this series — you’ll definitely need to have the original plot in mind to really grasp these remakes.
We’ll pass on the remaining episodes as Mobil 1 releases them, so keep it locked on TopSpeed.
