About a week ago I was watching MotorWeek at home. I just love the sultry rhythms of John Davis's voice when he says, "Hi, I'm John Davis." The show was on the new 911 Turbo, and some economy weird hybrid SUV or something, I was watching it for the 911 because usually MotorWeek has a different opinion on cars than others. While I was watching the review of said 911, John Davis uttered these words, "I like big brakes and I cannot lie"! Was I hallucinating? Was I dreaming, what the heck just happened? I have got to be in some weird alternate dimension right? John Davis didn't just quote Sir Mixalot right? I played it in my head a few times, pinched myself, threw a bit of cold water on my face, then pinched myself again! I wasn't dreaming. Then I scanned for free radicals and some quantum entanglement particles and possibly for some dark matter. I wasn't in an alternate universe either. I then had to come to the conclusion that John Davis, MotorWeeks awesome presenter really did just Quote "Baby's got Back"!
I immediately took to the Twitters and Tweeted out, "@MotorWeek s John Davis literally just quoted sir mixalot @Jalopnik@MattHardigree we must get him on a AMA". Matt informed me that he had done one for us about a year ago which I missed. Then MotorWeek tweeted me back! @jonathon_klein@MattHardigree@Jalopnik Did you make that up? LOL". So then began a small conversation with whoever is running their Twitter feed, who is also awesome.
Me: @MotorWeek@MattHardigree I might have been hallucinating, but I'm pretty sure my wife was sitting right next to me laughing hysterically! @MotorWeek@MattHardigree@Jalopnik and I quote "I like big brakes and I cannot lie" John Davis talking about the Porsche 911
Then things got even cooler, just a few minutes had gone by and MotorWeek Tweeted this.
