Airplane! (1980 Movie) Spoof for Wis. Tourism

Postby freeagent » Mon Mar 03, 2014 4:34 pm

Remember the old AIRPLANE! Movie from 1980s... Wisconsin tourism recreated a cockpit scene with Robert Hays and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (who won his first NBA title with the Milwaukee Bucks). Lots of old gags, including a return of the automatic pilot.

I know this is inside baseball for cheesehead refugees like me, but the hotel where they launched this ad at a tourism conference, the Grand Geneva Resort, used to be the Playboy Club in Lake Geneva. I went to college about 20 miles from there and a friend of mine, who was a "member" and had a "key" (house credit card, basically) took me there for lunch once.

The Playboy club closed in 1981 and it's had a couple owners since.
