You wanted it, you asked for it – and now you can get it!
Can you say “Dale Call”?
Yep, the pseudo engine roaring duck call that shot to fame in a Diet Mountain Dew TV commercial that began airing during this year’s Super Bowl, can now be yours.
Overwhelming public demand in the thousands for the Dale Call prompted Diet Mountain Dew officials to take what was originally just a prototype built solely for the TV commercial and turn it into what is likely to be a hot seller and potential gift, especially with Christmas right around the corner.
It’s exhaust pipes even light up when you blow into it. How cool is that?
And there’s a new commercial to go along with it, with even more to come in the near future.
Okay, so how do you get your own Dale Call?
Well, get quacking (sorry, we couldn’t resist). The sure to be hot item can be purchased at the five remaining racetracks still in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, as well as at NASCAR.com. More online outlets are likely soon to follow.
Suggested retail price is $24.99.
And what better place to buy it in-person than this weekend’s race at Talladega Superspeedway, where Earnhardt has five career victories.
Speaking of ‘Dega, Junior will have “#DaleCall” on the rear bumper of his No. 88 Diet Mountain Dew Chevrolet SS in this weekend’s racing action.
And you can bet that if he wins Sunday’s race, he’ll be Dale Calling in victory lane.
Here’s the commercial that started the beckon call … make that Dale Call — followed by new commercials featuring Junior’s mother and girlfriend.
