We’ll file this one under “Awesome”. During the Friday and Saturday of Comic-Con 2013, an Archer-inspired van could be seen driving around San Diego with “Van by Night” artwork on the side. The van is an homage to Dr. Krieger’s “kidnapper” van. The “Van by Night” mural featured on it was in turn was an homage to the Rush album, Fly by Night. All murals featured on Krieger’s van have thus far been Rush-inspired.
This particular van art was seen in a flashback during the season 4 episode, “The Wind Cries Mary” and the creation of a live-action version is a pretty cool treat for Archer fans. It should go without saying that Dr. Krieger was riding around town in the van. Bonus points for bringing his virtual girlfriend along.
