Wait… What?

Written by on February 3, 2015

This might be the wrong week for you to have quit sniffing glue. When Airplane! came out in 1980, it was released during a time when disaster movies were all the rage. So, it was natural to assume it was a parody of those films. Turns out, not so much. It is actually a spoof on a 1957 film called Zero Hour. In the video below, a rather crafty and eagle eyed editor put together parts of the two films juxtaposed to each other to show you just how one more joke was played on an unsuspecting audience. In some cases, the dialogue was lifted word for word. Parody at it’s finest. “Surly, you must be kidding.”, you might say. To that we say, “No, we aren’t. And don’t call us Shirley.”
