Comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham is a big fan of high
performance Chrysler products so when the Mopar team began looking for a
celebrity to pair up with for the 2012 SEMA Show, the well known funny guy
proved to be a good fit for the cooperative build titled Project Ultraviolet. In addition to building a car together that
will likely serve as a major part of the Mopar display at the 2012 SEMA Show,
Dunham is putting together a group of webisodes to air on YouTube over the next
The first video by Jeff Dunham chronicling the progress of
Project Ultraviolet begins by Dunham explaining how the project came together
just six weeks before the October 30th launch of the 2012 SEMA Show
when the folks from Mopar reached out to him.
Being a lifelong Mopar lover, Dunham quickly agreed and members of Team
Mopar flew to his home in LA to discuss the build. This first video ends with clips of Dunham
raising a little hell in the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 that will serve as the
base for Project Ultraviolet.
Unfortunately, little is known right now as to what Dunham
and Mopar have planned for the 2012 Challenger SRT8 shy of some new wheel
flares, a hood change and some aftermarket wheels but with SEMA just 12 days
away – it cannot be very long before the next episode featuring Dunham and his
2012 Challenger SRT8.
Check out the video below for a look at the first video.
