Think Pink

Pink Panther treat for Smart pilots
Toronto Star Feb. 16, 2006. 01:00 AM

Canadian owners of a Smart car will be eligible for a reward for their confidence in buying the small, fuel-efficient urban runabout.
Smart Canada says it will present Canada's 5,000 Smart owners with a pair of tickets to The Pink Panther.
The tiny two-seater appears in the film, in which Steve Martin recreates the classic Peter Sellers character, the calamity-prone Inspector Clouseau.
Martin also co-wrote the production, which opened Feb. 10.
Ten Smarts were set aside for filming, which took three months to complete in several countries. The car becomes a star in some scenes.
In one, the bumbling Clouseau attempts to manoeuvre the diminutive auto into an enormous parking space.
In the process, he succeeds in wrecking two other vehicles.
