Archives For VIPER SmartStart

Howard Stern, Robin Quivers and the rest of the cast treated the audience to a classic Baba Booey roasting on Wednesday after editing together some audio of the Stern Show producer’s new web series “They Call Me Baba Booey” featured on the Nerdist Channel.

Howard likened Gary Dell’Abate’s on-air delivery to someone reading from a math textbook aloud. Shuli Egar said the show name should be changed to “They Call Me Horrible.”

For any of you who missed it, the Viper SmartStart got a great shout out from Baba Booey in a segment where he ran down all of the app’s features and said that Viper “took a product he has used for year, but vastly improved it.”

Although it was a great review from Baba Booey, Stern and company teased him about the web show on Monday — and then completely roasted him about his appearance on Wednesday.

“When Gary talks he’s kind of interesting, when he reads, he’s HORRIBLE!!!!!” Stern joked. “When he’s reading off of the teleprompter, I guess he’s trying to look like he’s NOT reading off of the telepromter — so he lifts his chin and points it up to the sky so you’re looking up his nose and at his neck — and it’s like, ‘Gary, look into the f—– monitor, look into the TV camera.'”

Baba Booey was quick to defend himself, saying “I tried to do it the other way, and it was a little ‘um, um, um …'”

“Did you get to the second part?” Gary asked Stern (the second part is where Baby Booey pitches the Viper SmartStart.)

Stern said that they should now call Gary “Baba Boring.” “I was like, ooooh … oh my god!” he said.

The crew played clips from several different segments from the Nerdist and went around the room teasing him for being stiff and mimicking his delivery.

“The other day, uh, first of all, I would like to give a review about Sonos,” Stern said. “It’s like I’m at school, and he’s reading to me.”

“You’re talking to people!” Robin joked.

At times, Gary started getting a little heated and pushing back at his colleagues: “guys, don’t pretend that you don’t know what this stuff is when you do!”

“Do they pay you for this?” Stern asked him.

“They do, they actually pay me really well,” Baba Booey said. “It’s a great company.”

“Sonos also has, excuse me, turn the page,” Stern joked, “a very good interface …”

“The show is horrible, but it can only get better after I helped Gary today,” he added, laughing.

“You know what Howard, you’re too good to me,” Gary laughed.

Wow, Howard Stern loves to bust on that Baba Booey.

In case some of you haven’t heard, the Viper SmartStart got a great shout out from Howard Stern show producer Gary “Baba Booey” Dell’Abate on his web show “They Call Me Baba Booey” on The Nerdist. It was a glowing review: Baba Booey said that Viper “took a product he has used for years, but vastly improved it” — and also did a thorough rundown of the Viper SmartStart features.

Although it was a great review from Baba Booey, it was also a great laugh after hearing Howard Stern on Monday tease Baba Booey for his web show and how all it was is Baba Booey “talking about stuff he likes.”

Howard and his radio co-host Robin Quivers went on and on mimicking Baba Booey, saying things like “I like things I can turn on and turn off … from a distance” or “Yeah, I like to start my car from my phone” in the same way Baba Booey sounds when he talks with his teeth.

It’s a crack up and a MUST hear. If you haven’t seen our shout out on The Nerdist check out the video below.

We’re sure someone, somewhere in the world has failed to follow “the steps” to take after they’ve had the misfortune to have their car stolen. But seriously, do we need a list? Well, apparently so.

In 2010, auto thefts cost U.S. drivers about $4.5 billion. Although, in 2012 there has been a 3.3 percent reduction in the number of auto thefts, but that DOESN’T MEAN THEY DON’T EXIST ANYMORE. People get their cars stolen every day!

Now have you ever had one of those sleep-deprived days … or gotten lazy? Or maybe you parked in an unsafe area or didn’t lock your car one time and you come back to the spot to find it empty? Here is what you do.

According to this recent list from Jalopnik:

1: Make sure your car’s actually gone!  (We did say if you were having one of those sleep-deprived days, didn’t we??)

2: Now that you pinched yourself and realized you AREN’T just having a nightmare, you move on to the next step. Ask yourself if it might have been towed.

3: You should probably notify the police, right?

4: Call your vehicle security provider (if you’re lucky you have information from a Viper SmartStartGPS unit that you can relay to them).

5: Ask people nearby if they saw anything.

6: FREAK OUT. This would be a perfectly appropriate moment to let your emotions flow out. Don’t get too crazy now; you will soon be surrounded by the police!

7: Call your insurance company.

8: Look for your car online. It’s not too unlikely the thief had alternative motives, other than ruining your life, for stealing your car! Money perhaps? Maybe you can re-purchase your car vehicle and bag the crook!

9: *Sniff Sniff … Start looking for a replacement! *Sniff

10: Lastly, but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST. Learn from your mistakes!

We like this last nugget of advice the best: “Learn from it”! As in, don’t skimp on car security. And then maybe you won’t have to read the other recommendations.

Be smart, and make a vow to never have to follow these steps. EVER. Get your car protected! Choose Viper!

We know, folks, it’s hard to believe the summer car show season is already drawing to a close.

Recently the Texas HeatWave series held its huge Austin event where hundreds of custom trucks and cars were on display. And you know these rides had to have some serious security. If not alarms then maybe firearms! I mean it’s called the “HeatWave” Custom Truck and Car show for a reason, right?

If you didn’t get your car souped up in time to enter this year’s show, you better start preparing for future car shows! To make it big in the Lone Star State, you’ve gotta show off your wheels!

But let’s not forget, the nicer the car the MORE SECURITY YOU WILL NEED! If you have a one-of-a-kind car, who wouldn’t want to do anything they can to get their hands on it! Be smarter than the criminal and get yourself some car protection. Viper car alarms have been installed in all kinds of cars.

Did you know that every 40 seconds a car is stolen in the U.S., according to FBI statistics? Well if you didn’t, I’m sure you’re glad you have a Viper security system now.

(And if you don’t, shame on you!!!!)

Sadly for many car owners, thieves seem to have a taste for luxury. With the top three cars on the most stolen luxury cars list being: The Chrysler 300 in third — of 31,287 made 143 were stolen in 2009 — and in second place, the BMW M5 — with two stolen out of 264 units created in 2009. Topping the list in the No. 1 spot is the Audi S8: With only 227 produced, 2 were stolen, making the theft rate 8.81 per one thousand units manufactured, according to the most recent FBI data.

I’m sure many of you are considering downsizing to that modest, mid-sized Toyota Camry, but unfortunately that won’t do you any good either. As most Viper fans no doubt know, the Camry takes the cake for the most stolen car in America.

No matter how you slice it, whether you drive the nicest car on the block, or the most reliable, you will want the assurance that no one will dare to come close.

You want to know who else made the “Luxury Car Top 10,” don’t you?

Well, rounding out the list are:

4. Nissan Infiniti M35/M45

5. General Motors Cadillac STS

6. Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

7. Chrysler Sebring Convertible

8. Chrysler Sebring

9. Audi A8

10. Volvo V70
