Knight Rider's KITT falls on hard times, appears in auto parts ad

What's an artificially intelligent robotic car supposed to do after its series gets canceled? If you're KITT, star of Knight Rider—who even got passed over for the short-lived reboot that got the ax about a year ago—you don't have a lot of options. Especially not in this economy.

Which must be why the four-wheeled sidekick just ended up as the spokesper—er, make that spokescar—for the U.K. automotive repair chain Kwik Fit.

Check out its new role below. (And if you know of any job openings for a computerized car, well, give KITT a call. Looks like it could use the work.)
