Welcome back! The NFL football season is in full effect and we’re back again for another season of Redskins Rides. Last year, Easterns Automotive Group partnered with the Washington Redskins to find the best rides in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. It was such a success that the two decided to bring back the segment again this year to coincide with the 2018 Redskins season. In this clip, Ziggy Hood of the Redskins introduces both Frances and Michael to share their custom Redskins themed Ford Crown Victoria. From first glance, it’s obvious that these two are some of the biggest Redskins fans in the area. This incredible ride is covered in Redskins logos and stickers from the front to the back of the exterior. The interior is also covered in Redskins memorabilia, seat covers, and mats. It makes perfect sense that they use this car for tailgating because it is the ultimate showstopper. The couple is still working on adding a few things here and there to the car to make it even more special. This project went from being a fun hobby to a labor of love for them. We want to thank both Frances and Michael for taking the time to show off their custom Redskins Ride. Stay tuned for more Redskins Rides in DC, Maryland, and Virginia community.

We hope that you all are enjoying your week! It’s time for yet another Throwback Thursday clip of the week brought to you by Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors). Back in 2008, Easterns recruited comedian Harland Williams to create a unique commercial. Aside from being a comedian, Williams is also an actor that has numerous movie roles dating back to 1994. Some of his most notable roles include Dumb and Dumber, Half Baked, and Employee of the Month. As a comedian, Williams has performed his stand-up on shows like Late Night with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Late Night with Conan just to name a few. It’s clear that he has a gift!
For the commercial, Williams dressed up as a scientist in a white lab coat and danced around to the Easterns jingle. The clip couldn’t have been funnier because he is such a natural. At the end of the clip, Williams urges customers to choose Easterns because of the large inventory. If ever you need a good laugh, this is the clip for you. Remember, choose Easterns! www.easterns.com
Pay It Forward partners Fox 5 DC and Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) have teamed up yet again. The pair found a very special organization to give back to. A 7-year-old girl by the name of Myanna created her own non-profit organization named MyannasHeart based off a personal experience. When Myanna was just 5 months old, she had her very first open heart surgery and has undergone several surgeries since. After enduring such a traumatic experience both mentally and physically, she made it her purpose to help other children with their own hospital experience.
MyannasHeart is a non-profit organization that gives tote bags filled with goodies to children at Inova Children’s Hospital. Some of the goodies included in the tote toys, blankets, and puzzles. These small things can make a child’s hospital stay that much more comfortable. Kudos to Myanna’s mother Sheri Kempton for stepping up to the plate and taking the steps to ensure that her daughter’s dream came to life. When Fox 5 DC and Easterns Automotive Group got wind of this they immediately wanted to help. Fox 5 DC invited Myanna and her family on Good Day DC where Joel Bassam of Easterns surprised them live on air with toys, supplies for their bags, and a check for $1,000 to help them on their mission.

We are back with another Throwback Thursday Clip from Eastern Motors. This week, we have Brendan Haywood who is a former center for the Washington Wizards. Easterns built a great relationship with Haywood during his time because not only was he local, but he accomplished great milestones with the Wizards. Being that Easterns has always been a big supporter of all the teams and players in the area, they thought that Haywood would be a great addition to the Easterns family.
Haywood’s 7 ft height was always a physical feature that he to use to his advantage on the basketball court. This didn’t work when he tried to fit inside of a Mini Cooper during his commercial shoot with Easterns. Even though he was able to fit inside the car, he had very little room left to maneuver and be comfortable. The car salesmen walked him through the perks of having a Mini Cooper such as great gas mileage, tax breaks on emissions, and the affordable price tag. However, even these great perks couldn’t prevent Haywood from saying that he needed a car that was better for his size. After searching the dealership, he found a Cadillac Escalade that fit him comfortably. It’s great for customers to see that Easters has cars, trucks, and SUVs that fit everyone’s size and budget.
