Storyline

Kevin was commissioned to shoot the first ever short film aired on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The result was the return of Randal and Dante from 'Clerks' in this six-minute-long short film shown on The Tonight Show and downloadable at the View Askew web site (www.viewaskew.com). This short is a discussion of the absence of the "flying car" and the hypothetical question posed asking "what would you do to get a flying car?" Funny dialogue between characters leads up to a hilarious punch-line which ties it all together in a Kevin Smith trademark style. Written by Bobby Bokista <www.virtualfools.com>

Trivia

Before becoming a short film, the conversation between Dante and Randal in the traffic jam, took place in the original Clerks 2 script as they were making their way to a Soul Asylum concert. See more »

Goofs

A local anesthetic is specifically designed to not render the patient unconscious. A "local" which, as Randal describes, would knock Dante out, would in fact be a general anesthetic. See more »

Quotes

[sitting in traffic]
Randal: It's times like this it occurs to me that we were lied to by "The Jetsons."
Dante: What are you talking about?
Randal: According to that show we were suppose to be tooling around in flying cars by now. You see any flying cars lately? That's the problem with TV, it always lies to us.
Dante: Yeah, well most of us rational thinkers weren't banking on a cartoon to offer us a viable glimpse into the future of technological development.

Clerks. In a car.
30 September 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Great stuff. Dante and Randal are stuck in a traffic jam and begin talking about a flying car, and to what lengths Dante would go in order to be the first person alive to receive one and revolutionize world travel.

This was written and directed by Kevin Smith after appearing on the Tonight Show. He was asked to do correspondence and he suggested even doing a short film (his first). Here it is.

I never saw it on Jay Leno's Tonight Show but it's included on the new "Clerks. X" DVD, with an introduction by Smith. It's very funny and best of all, Jeff Anderson is so into Randal here that he gives a better performance than he did in the actual movie! (Sort of reminded me of Owen Wilson, to be honest.)

Very funny. Another reason to pick up the excellent DVD.
