If you happened to watch the Indianapolis 500 pre-race this morning, in their never ending quest to cross-promote franchises and brands, Disney showed a Cars Land promo featuring John Lasseter and ESPN/ABC ace sports broadcaster Brent Musburger. Best look at Cars Land yet. Hopefully Disney (or someone) posts it to YouTube sometime soon.
Of course sadness often follows joy in auto racing when following the Cars Land promo video, a solitary lap was taken in silence by last year's winning car which was driven by the late Dan Wheldon while Taps was being played. The danger and sometimes tragedy of the sport that the men and women who drive the race cars for a living kind of gets lost with cars with painted faces on them.
PS... I get the feeling that John Lasseter would have made a heck of a car salesman.
