NASCAR is arguably the most popular form of motorsport in the United States, and one of the most popular in the world. A measure of that popularity is the shear number of commercials featuring prominent drivers, meant to appeal not only to the average race fan, but to the entire marketplace.
One of the most popular drivers in the sport is Four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon, who will be featured in a one-hour special of “I GET THAT A LOT,” airing Wednesday, Jan. 9 at 8 p.m. ET on the CBS Television Network.
Other celebrities appearing in the special include actress Jane Seymour, actor and comedian Cheech Marin, former Olympian Bruce Jenner, late actor Larry Hagman and Phil Keoghan from “The Amazing Race.”
“I GET THAT A LOT” features celebrities tricking everyday citizens in cases of supposed “mistaken identity.” Working ordinary jobs, the celebrities confuse customers who can’t decide if it’s the actual celebrity or an astonishing look-alike.
Though the segment seems very familiar, as if I've seen something almost exactly like it before, it should make for some interesting television.
