Burbank, CA (01/01/12):
The public is fascinated with celebrity life, and –as with regular folks, cars represent an extension of a celebrity’s personality.
From flashy to practical, classic to high tech, REALHD.TV is talking to celebrities about their cars and taking viewers behind the scenes to meet the stars and their “Rides.”
Southern California and the “Thirty Mile Zone” is a hotbed for the automotive culture, including those of the stars of the silver screen and those working in the Entertainment industry. Producer Bob Bekian combined the two to create a unique look at the Celebrities individual expression through their cars. One of the most interesting cars is Snoop Dogg’s 1965 Pontiac Catalina with photo-realistic airbrushed paintings of all the Los Angeles Lakers with an honorary Snoop slamming a ball into the hoop (in full Laker uniform). “That car reflects my love of the Lakers and this city,” Snoop says.” I had the interior custom made with yellow and purple leather to represent my team’s colors.”
Another interesting featured car is Kim Kardashian’s blacked out Bentley with custom made black rhinestone rims. This car gives new meaning to the term “bling.” Kim’s good friend, La La Vasquez, rolls in a metallic pink Range Rover with custom wheels to match. “Then there are the understated rides– like Will I Am‘s Tesla and Don Cheadle‘s Audi coupe.” Bekian adds.
As a collector of vintage and performance cars himself, producer Bob Bekian has loved cars since his boyhood days in West L.A. “We coveted our Hot Wheels and dreamed of a day when we would own and drive cool real cars ourselves, so this project is based on a long time passion and love for the auto culture in Southern California.” An avid collector of boomer and Hollywood memorabilia, Bekian has acquired an important vintage Hot Wheels collection, which is used frequently in movies and television.
REALHD.TV is a new lifestyle web channel that provides short form (2-5 minute) entertainment content to computers, tablets, or mobile devices.
