Fans of racing, “The Dark Knight” and Mountain Dew® (DEW) start your engines! Mountain Dew and Dale Earnhardt Jr. will give fans everywhere a first taste of this summer’s most anticipated blockbuster, Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ The Dark Knight Rises, before it hits theaters on July 20. Teasing the final film of “The Dark Knight” trilogy, Earnhardt calls on fans to give his No. 88 Diet Mountain Dew Chevrolet a “Dark Knight”-inspired makeover before it hits the track in Michigan on June 15.
The new promotion marks the official kick-off to Mountain Dew’s interactive The Dark Knight Rises campaign by putting the power in the hands of the fans to determine which of four “Dark Knight”-inspired paint schematics will appear on Earnhardt’s No. 88 Chevrolet. Each paint scheme captures a different element featured in the third and final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and time will tell if Batman or Gotham City’s newest terrorist, Bane will win out, or if fans will select The Dark Knight Rises logo as part of Earnhardt’s paint scheme. Earnhardt himself will also get his ownsignature “Dark Knight” look thanks to a custom fire suit that will also make its race debut in Michigan on June 15.
