The Gunny Says Ride Victory Maggots
Wednesday, October 5, 2011
"Get down and give me 20!"
I’m getting a kick out of these new Victory Motorcycle
spots. Victory has enlisted the services of one Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey aka “The Gunny” from Full Metal Jacket and are keeping the retired US Marine Corps drill instructor busy these days as a spokesman for the company. They had “The Gunny” go around Sturgis
challenging motorcyclists to ride a Victory for the first time to prove “It’s the best damn motorcycle out there.” The videos capture their reactions during and after the ride.
Gunny not only talks the talk, as a retired Marine DI he also walks the walk. A brilliant marketing strategy, if you ask me. Even though he’s an actor as well, Gunny says everything with such conviction you can’t help but admire the guy. He was getting mobbed by fans on Main Street Sturgis.
So who’s to question the Gunny when he says “Ride One and You’ll Own One. You got that sweet lips?” Good stuff by Victory Motorcycles.
