    Default This goes to anyone out there.....

    Hi my name is viv, and i have been on the links for a little while.....But i have been a VH fan since i was 14, i am now 37. I have never really been a van/sammy fan, but i was just watching cheech and chongs next movie, which i have seen a zillion times, when i noticed that the red farrari they take off in, say 0u812.....this movie came out in 78 so i am wondering if this is where the boys got the idea for the title of the album. Anyone out there know this???? Thanks, viv

    Never noticed that before, that's a a cool piece of Van Halen trivia though.

    I remember that from seeing that movie in the theaters when it was first released (it actually came out in '79, btw) and nearly a decade later simply figured someone in the band was a big Cheech and Chong fan and stole the joke. A bit of connecting trivia, Cheech and Chong MC'd the California World Music Festival in Los Angeles that was a huge breakout outdoor festival show for VH the week they released VHII in April of '79. I remember they did a 15 minute comedy routine inbetween bands after dark and intro'd either VH or Aerosmith.

    Thanks Viv. Great screen name, BTW. I always felt that Viv never got the respect he deserved in Spinal Tap but, then again, who could compete with Nigel, David and Derek for the spotlight...

    Yep, it's in the movie....


    I remember a thread back a few years ago about how 0u812 started and that was the general concensus 'round here....


    See ya in the Tard Barn....
