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

Dante: Ok, I'll trade my left foot for the flying car.
Randal: Why your left foot?

Kevin Smith has got WAY to much time on his hands.
17 April 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Or he has just to many good ideas and no time to convert them into feature lenght scripts. so he makes shorts like this! and i love them! this short is basically just Clerks in a car. they're sitting there in traffic talking about how flying cars should have been invented already. it doesn't make much sense to the common viewer but to us fans of pop culture this is some of the funniest things we'll ever see. what's bothering me though is why didn't he include this in one of his movies in stead of making this little short? i mean i think it would have fitted into Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back somewhere. or maybe in Clerks 2? oh but it doesn't matter. this was great either way. it's just as his other movies so if you're a Kevin Smith fan then download it and watch it! it's a must!
