Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week: Ryan Kerrigan for Eastern Motors

Easterns fans! Redskins fans! We are back with another Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week. This week, we have a clip from 2016 starring Redskins linebacker and number 91, Ryan Kerrigan. He shot this particular clip as well as a series of others both individually and with the help of his teammates Kirk Cousins and Josh Norman. The overall goal of this clip was for Kerrigan to explain to fans and viewers what hard work means to him pertaining to his football career. With Kerrigan having to endure so much throughout his career, he definitely understands the importance of sacrifice, consistency, and work ethic. This partnership with Kerrigan made sense because Easterns sells cars to the hard working men and women of the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community. These are the folks that can definitely relate to working hard and fighting to achieve what they want! Easterns has 6 stores located conveniently throughout the DMV area – with a brand new location in Alexandria, Virginia (611 S Pickett St). Please feel free to stop by and visit!

Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week: Josh Norman for Easterns

It’s that time of the week! We are back with another Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week presented by Easterns Automotive Group. This week, we have chosen to highlight none other than the cornerback for the Washington Redskins, Josh Norman. Easterns recruited Norman for commercials shortly after he signed his $75 million dollar deal with the Redskins. A deal that made him the highest paid cornerback in NFL history at the time. In this clip, Norman discusses the importance of believing yourself and working hard to overcome any fear or doubt. This is something that anyone can relate to despite their gender, race, or financial status. Norman’s teammates Kirk Cousins and Ryan Kerrigan also shot commercials both individually and together during this time. These three together make up what is known as the Easterns All Star Team.

Norman was a great addition to the Easterns family because of core values and what he represents both on and off the field. He understands the importance of hard work, dedication and being a part of the community. His reliability caused the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community to receive him with open arms. Easterns sells cars to the hard working men and women in the DMV area.

Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week: Alfred Morris Hard Work Commercial

It’s time for our Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week from Easterns. This week, we have none other than former Washington Redskins player, Alfred Morris. The particular commercial being referred to was shot back in 2013 when Morris was a running back for the Redskins. Easterns recruited him during his very early days of being a Redskins player. They believed that he would be a great fit due to not only his skills on the football field but also what he represents as a person of the community. In this clip, Morris is shown working out and training for an upcoming Redskins game. Viewers are able to go behind the scenes of his training session and get a quick glimpse of the personal work ethic that it takes to be great in NFL football. The theme of hard work is universal because so many people can relate to working hard no matter what career field that they are in.

Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week | Santana Moss challenges a Lamborghini to a race

Happy New Year to all! We wanted to kick off our first Throwback Thursday with someone very special by the name of Santana Moss. Moss had an incredible 10 year run playing for the Washington Redskins. Many would love to say that they made atleast half of the impact that Moss on the team and the entire Redskins organization. Moss is the current host of Redskins Shop Talk on NBC Sports. He definitely stuck around way longer than his time in the league. Moss is now able to give his thoughts, opinion, and critique to current players of the Redskins as well as other NFL teams. It’s always great to hear the prospective of an actual player himself that knows the game and the feeling of being on top. This particular throwback video was shot back in 2007 during a time where you couldn’t go anywhere in the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia) area where you couldn’t go anywhere without seeing someone wearing a Moss jersey. He was and still is beloved in the community by Redskins fans which is one of the reasons beyond just his awesome skills that Easterns wanted him to star in a commercial.
In this clip, Moss is seen going back and forth with a Lamborghini that is revving its engine. Moss starts to throw out his stats to basically let the Lamborghini know who’s boss. He made brief mention of having over 300 catches and over 4,700 yards. Of course these numbers aren’t accurate to date but they were back in 2007 when the commercial was filmed. The Lamborghini continued to rev its engine and rile Moss up. Moss then challenged the Lamborghini to a race by saying, “Let’s see what you got!” He wasted no time taking off and was well in motion before the Lamborghini could get off the ground. There was no denying that Moss was one of the best in the league with his skill and his speed. An incredible talent!

Richard gives Ryan Kerrigan a tour of his green machine

It’s been a little while since our last Redskins Rides blog post. We hope that you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday with your family, friends, and loved ones. We couldn’t leave you guys hanging for long! Easterns Automotive Group has teamed up with the Washington Redskins once again for another edition of Redskins Rides. Ryan Kerrigan met with Richard at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to get an up-close and personal look at his unique whip. Richard is the proud owner of a lime green 1936 Chevy Coach. This coach is different from a sedan in that it is a two-door and that it is much more compact in size. Richard purchased this beauty about five months ago in Nashville, Tennessee. The unusual color caught his attention and ultimately led him to make the purchase. It has a brand new 350 fuel injection under the hood as well as a pristine cream interior. It’s clear that he has a great eye for cars because this was definitely an awesome classic car purchase. We want to thank Richard for taking the time to show off his custom Redskins Rides. Stay tuned for more Redskins Rides in DC, Maryland, and Virginia community. Easterns and the Washington Redskins got you covered!

Redskins Rides – PJ & Val give Anthony Lanier II a tour of their tailgating truck

We’re back! Reporting live from Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia where we just filmed a brand new edition of Redskins Rides. Redskins Rides is brought to you by Easterns Automotive Group along with the Washington Redskins. Easterns thought that the perfect person for this segment would be defensive end, Anthony Lanier II. With Lanier being such a tall guy at 6’6”, they definitely wanted to give him a Redskins Ride that he could actually relate to. He met his match with PJ and Val. These two are the proud owners of the super spacious 2008 Ford F-350 Lariat Super Duty pickup truck. The first noticeable attribute of the truck is how high it sits off the ground. The rims and tires are huge! Val purchased the truck in stock condition a few years ago from a friend. He has spent the last three years customizing the truck to fit his tailgating needs. Since being introduced to American football by a friend, Val loves traveling in his truck to different cities and attending various NFL games. We want to thank Val and PJ for taking the time to show us their custom Redskins Ride. Stay tuned for many more Redskins Rides in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community.

Redskins Rides – Kari gives Chris Thompson a tour of her custom 2016 Boss Hoss

Back again! This week we have a great edition of Redskins Rides in store for you all on behalf of Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) and the Washington Redskins. This edition is very unique because it is the very first time we have featured a trike. A trike is a 3 wheeled bike in this case it’s also in the form of a motorcycle. Kari met up with Chris Thompson of the Redskins at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to discuss her unique ride. Kari is the proud owner of a 2016 Boss Hoss 450 with a 1957 Chevy engine. It doesn’t get much more astonishing than that! The royal blue paint with the silver stripes makes it look like a beast. She gets a lot of attention on the road because most people are just blown away by the custom design and the fact that it’s a motorcycle on 3 wheels. Her favorite customization on the bike is the name “Sparkle” that she got put on the trunk. The reason she chose that name is because of her love for jewelry and sparkly items. This trike is amazing! We want to thank Kari for giving us an exclusive look at her custom ride. Stay tuned for many more Redskins Rides in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community.

Redskins Rides – Jim gives Chris Thompson a tour of his awesome 1956 Chevy Bel Air

A new week means we’re back to bring you a new edition of Redskins Rides presented by Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) and the Washington Redskins. Last night the Redskins won their game over the Seahawks so of course everyone in the DMV metro area is very excited. Among those that were ecstatic was Jim, a lifelong Redskins fan. Jim met up with Chris Thompson of the Redskins at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to discuss his very own Redskins Ride. Jim is the proud owner of a 1956 Chevy Bel Air (hard top edition). Shortly after Jim purchased the vehicle, he got it painted a custom burgundy metallic color with gold flakes in the paint. When the sun hits the paint it makes the car look so magnificent. We’ve been asking around to see if anyone has seen a Bel Air quite like Jim’s but so far the unanimous answer has been no. There are even Redskins flags on top of both windows that wave in the wind while the car is in motion. This entire project of customizing the car and making it personal has been a labor of love for Jim. It has become something that he thoroughly enjoys doing. He informed us that he has been a Redskins season ticket holder since 1967. Wow! There is no denying that Jim is a diehard Skins fan. Awesome ride! We want to thank him for giving is an exclusive look at his custom ride. Stay tuned for many more Redskins Rides in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community.

Redskins Rides – Daniel and Jesse show off both of their 1963 Chevy Impalas at Redskins Park

Hello, beautiful people! This week, we have doubled the fun for you all. Of course that means we have another edition of Redskins Rides but we have two amazing rides this time. We recently met with both Daniel and Jesse at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to see their awesome cars. They both own a 1963 Chevy Impala but they are both different from each other yet unique in their own way. Daniel purchased his 1963 Impala convertible back in 2005 and is a member of Individuals Car Club of Woodbridge, Virginia. He found the car in Ontario, Canada and brought it to the DMV area where he has been working on it ever since. The teal metallic paint job with the custom paint designs definitely separates this Impala from the rest. The part of this Impala that really makes it stand on its own is the custom aircraft hydraulic system that Daniel had installed in the trunk.

Jesse has owned his fire engine red Chevy Impala for about 12 years. The car caught on fire last year causing him to have to re-do the entire vehicle all over again. Like Daniel, his Redskins Ride also has a hydraulic system. He discussed the excitement that people have when they see the car on hydraulics. Most people have only seen hydraulics on television so it’s definitely quite amazing to see in person. Originally, Jesse’s plan was just to have the car painted plain red. The painter showed Jesse some custom paint panels that he just couldn’t decline. It all worked out in the end because you definitely won’t see another Impala like it. Amazing rides, fellas! We want to thank this gentleman for giving us an exclusive look at their rides. Stay tuned for many more Redskins Rides in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community.

John shows off his 2016 Subaru WRX to Chris Thompson of the Washington Redskins

We’re back this week to bring you the latest edition of Redskins Rides presented by Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) and the Washington Redskins. Chris Thompson of the Redskins was recruited to speak to Maryland resident, John regarding his custom Redskins Ride. John is the proud owner of a custom 2016 Subaru WRX. Everything on the car is custom, which makes it very unique. The reason that John made modifications to his WRX is because he wanted a car that would be perfect for off-roading, drag racing, and of course every day use. The custom paint job on his WRX definitely has a burgundy/red undertone that is reminiscent of colors of the Redskins jersey. The racing seats definitely give the car that Need for Speed and Fast and Furious feeling. John told Thompson that one of his favorite customizations on this car is the custom Maryland flag mud flaps. It’s very apparent that John takes a lot of pride in being a Maryland resident. People ask him all the time how fast his car can go but he prefers for them to see for themselves out on the track. You definitely can’t go wrong when combining amazing cars with the Washington Redskins. Incredible Subaru, John! We want to thank this gentleman for giving us an exclusive look at his ride.

Dr. Hardnett shows off his 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider to Dustin Hopkins of the Washington Redskins

It’s week 7 of the Redskins Rides segment presented by the Washington Redskins along with Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors). For this segment, Easterns recruited Dustin Hopkins who is a placebacker for the Redskins. Hopkins’ drive both on and off the field made him a perfect fit for the role. The special candidate for this edition of Redskins Rides is Dr. Hardnett, the owner of Effective Integrative Healthcare in Maryland. Hopkins met up with Dr. Hardnett at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia. Dr. Hardnett is the proud owner of a white 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider with bronze colored wheels and a beautiful burgundy interior is identical to the Redskins color. He traded in his Bentley Continental GT Coupe that was formerly owned by the late, great Sean Taylor. Dr. Hardnett also got rid of his original dream car which is the Nissan GTR in order to get the amazing Ferrari 458 that he owns today. This is truly a Redskins Ride because the color of the interior is identical to the color of the Redskins jerseys. Dr. Hardnett has clearly been a Redskins fan for years and it’s quite evident by not only his knowledge of cars but his attire while he’s on the field with Hopkins. You will definitely double take when you see this quick Ferrari speeding by. We would like to thank Dr. Hardnett for not only his time but for showing off and sharing his amazing vehicle with us. It’s amazing to meet our supports and give them an opportunity as well as a platform to showcase their amazing vehicles. Stay tuned for more Redskins Rides!
