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

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
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.
