Luxury RV 1291 on the set of “This Is Us.” MMwM Ep.159 BONUS


(car engine) (mellow rock music) – Good morning everyone, and welcome to a bonus episode
of Marathon Mondays with Mal. Today, we’ve got something pretty special. We’re going to do a party down
at Motorcoach Country Club to talk about custom coaches. It’s gonna be on St. Patrick’s Day, with Coach 1291, a
Coach we know very well, to the Marathon Monday family because we documented a lot
of the build of that Coach, and matching trailer. Coach 1291, a beautiful custom, extremely custom X3-Coach, but also because that Coach
was used in ABC’s hit show, This is Us, recently. Recently, on this season’s,
one of the episodes, Coach 1291 was requested by
the producers of This is Us, by the ABC TV show, to be one of the character’s actual buses. One of the characters, played
by actor Justin Hartley. The character is Kevin,
one of the big three, one of the three siblings
of that show This is Us. He’s an actor on the show, so his character, Kevin, is an actor. So, they needed a bus,
a really nice marathon, to be his trailer on the
set of a fictional movie that they’re using as part of the show, as the storyline of the show. Therefore, they needed Coach 1291 to make it down to Paramount’s back lot in Hollywood, California to shoot a day of, basically, shots for a scene that was recently shown
on one of the episodes. Now, this was done a few months ago, and we couldn’t really talk about it or show anything until that episode aired as part of the deal. So, just to remind everybody, Coach 1291. This is actually the coffee table book that our marketing team does, but it actually has an updated book to show off this beautiful bus, and to show off the beautiful trailer. And, I just wanted you guys to see some of the beautiful shots inside. Remember the desk that pops up? Really a big fan of this. It really showed very well
on the Paramount back lot, and there’s the show
trailer that goes behind it. Now, the trailer was not used, or needed as part of the show. There’s the tandem together. Ain’t that beautiful? Very custom X3 Coach 1291. So, Bernie and Debbie allowed
Paramount to use their bus as part of the This is Us production, and it came off great. In fact, here is the
Marathon Owner’s manual. And, it’s kinda hard to see
’cause all we had at the time was a red pen, but as
you can see right there, several autographs. This one right here in the
middle is Justin Hartley, the actor that used it
as part of his scene. But, you’ve got producers, directors who autographed
this Owner’s Manual for a Marathon Coach. So, that being said everyone, I hope you enjoyed this bonus episode of Marathon Monday’s with Mal, featuring custom Coach 1291,
down at the Paramount back lot, for the ABC hit show, This is Us. – What’s going on everybody? Marathon Coach 1291, here on the set of the This is Us T.V. show, here in Hollywood. We see, here are the trailers for the characters on This is Us. We’re down here, filming a scene on the
Paramount back lot… with Coach 1291. (car engine) (chatter) – Background! – Background, action! (acting commences) – Thank you for watching
