Snakes On A Plane

I just stepped out for a beer with a friend who had been stranded in the loop by a fire on the Blue Line. The tavern in question had on the All-Star Game, as you would expect, and said bar had filled up with patrons representing many non-Chicago major league franchises. As a result there was an occasional smattering of applause for Vlad's HR, and David Wright's HR, and a few impressive pitches. At some point, however, the bar erupted into unanimous cheering and applause. As I turned to see what the commotion was about, I was not confronted by A-Rod or Big Papi, but by Samuel L. Jackson shooting a harpoon at a cobra.

They were applauding the trailer for Snakes on a Plane.

I've never seen anything like it.

This thing could be huge.


  • The Snakes on a Plane marketing campaign has been nothing short of genius.

    I suspect that the people behind it might have more than the exploitation flick that they seem to be pushing in store.
