Knight Rider Belt

How to accessorize a natty black leather jacket, blue jeans and a chest wig the size of Texas?

The Knight Rider Belt contains a couple of watch batteries which power the familiar red lights that sweep Cylonesquely across its unapologetically naff faux leather surface.

A natty conversation starter, literally in fact, if purchased with the optional extra KITT voice synthesiser that will issue one of a (limited) number of pre-programmed (if slightly camp) witticisms at the push of a button.

Hey, it's not a Knight Rider Belt, but it does say five different things at the push of a button, and it is pretty much guaranteed to start a conversation when worn in public with the rest of the Bob the Builder Deluxe kit. [jurist, Oct 27 2005]

       William Daniels is probably still available to do the KITT recordings if you act soon.

       Kraftwerk have the tie version of this, with lights on the vertical, for lives shows and, presumably, wowing the ladies.

       i know i've seen this around, or at least a belt that has words that scroll by in red letters... i'll keep looking for the link.

       Until now I never realised KITT was a reference to the HAL9000... Or is it not?   

       And the Cylons in Battlestar Galactica, are they a reference to KITT?

       Will it drive my trousers over to me if I have parked them around the corner?

       [rrr], Battlestar Galactica came out *way* before Knight-Rider (well at least 4 years anyway -> 1978 vs 1982) I expect they probably hired one of the left-over special effects guys.   

       KITT had a calm, reasoned voice (most of the time) because he was a computer/car. HAL had a calm reasoned voice because he/it was a psychotic AI, and it made him scaryer that way - kind of like an electronic Hannibal Lecter.

       I don't know if William Daniels, Mr. Feeny, would want his voice coming from how many belt buckles, and you'd forever be saying damnitt KITT I told you my name isn't Michael.

       I would buy this, but only if I could push a button to play the theme music.
