Smokey and the Bandit trailer on Walking Dead

So apparently last night's episode of Walking Dead had a derelict trailer that had the graphics from the Smokey and the Bandit movie. Apparently on the Talking Dead afterwards, they explained that with a graphic that used the words "exact same truck" which is not the case and some people are upset about it.

I just thought it was nice that they gave a nod to the movie at all.

1970 Mach 1 M code
1990 5.0 LX Limited Edition

I keep noticing the DOT puts up signs to honor my burnouts. That's nice of them.

I thought it had looked familiar too. But couldn't remember where I had seen it while watching TWD.

If you watched the show, it was the trailer Daryl and Richard were behind.

Why are people saying it isn't the trailer from Smokey?

Ohhhhh, when they had the fight on whether they should attack.

It would have been HILARIOUS if the Snowman showed up as a walker. They also need to check that trailer, it could be hauling a huge load of beer... or a dead elephant...

Someone made a video of their TV of it, looks pretty damn close to me:

I am now thinking about quitting this show.
It just keeps getting dumber, and dumber.
Really. 6 years after an apocalypse people decide to forget how to speak English and create a completely new dialect? Non-sense.

It would have been cooler if Daryl would have found a running 78 Trans-am in the trailer.

This is how the zombie apocalypse would work in those blue states.

It would not even be the same show, if a red state person wrote it. LOL.

The show would be called target practice during the zombie vacation. LOL.

Be aware that there have been other trailers painted to match the trailer used in the movie. The rig shown below is not the actual truck from the movie. My understanding is that the whereabouts of the movie truck(s) are unknown. Yup, more than one truck was used in the movie.

Now that I think about it, last week there was a black second generation GM F Body on the road where they had the cable between two cars scene.

Yep, that was retarded. Hell, maybe she was retarded (not your wife, the apocalyptic leader of the garbage clan)?

SOOOO GLAD.
I wasn't the only person wondering what the F was going on with the writing of this episode, and the garbage peoples language.

AND.

In the plot of this show they can't find GUNS! LOL.
I have read that at least 44% of american homes have a fire arm.
For every 10 houses you search 4.4% should have a fire arm.
Who writes this tv show? It should be harder for the characters to find clean, drinkable water than guns. LOL.
I know it is just a dumb tv show, but it is getting dumber. LOL.

thanks...couldn't take one look at that picture without singing Eastbound and Down. Now SWMBO's mad at me.
