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

Dante says that when JFK promised to put a man on the moon in 10 years, "nobody had started working on the space program at that point." In reality, JFK made his promise on May 25, 1961. NASA became operational on October 1, 1958, and sent Alan Shepherd into space on May 5, 1961. See more »

Quotes

Dante: All right! I'll go through with the deal. I'll let the German scientist hack my foot off. Then him and his friends can have their way with me. All for the flying car.
Randal: You would do it with a bunch of guys just to get a car? I thought I knew you man.

This is one of the greatest shorts ever
21 March 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Although i missed this soon to be classic from writer/director Kevin Smith (Clerks), I found it on the View Askew homepage. It has everything i loved from the View Askew movies rolled into 7 minutes! Randal and Dante discuss what Dante would give up to own a flying car. The results are very hilarious! The only downside to it, is that it reminds me a lot of the scene in "Clerks" where Randal explains the circumstances surrounding his cousins death. *** out of **** stars. Also check out the shorts "Mae Day: The Crumbling Of A Documentary"(Directed by Kevin Smith) and "Star" (Directed by Guy Ritchie.)
