Snakes On A Plane + Edited For TV = High Comedy
In a few short days, this vid is racking up the hits. For damn good reason.

Snakes On A Plane is being shown edited for the telly. FX had to alter some of our boy Sam Jackson's more colorful language.

Now the iconic line from the film is:



Awesome. Monkey-fightin' snakes on a Monday to Friday plane. A new catch phrase is born. I'll bet this week's YBNBY paycheck the line is on a T-shirt by Friday. If anyone has knowledge or footage of monkey-fighting snakes, please send them. I'm begging you.

What I wouldn't pay to be in the room when the sound editor told Sam that he had to loop that line. "Yeah, uh, it's 'monkey fighting,' Sam. Just give it a shot. Okay, rolling..."

The footage is poor, the audio is in Portuguese... The poor little monkey is having a bad time with the snake. The folks are about to cry with the little boy's bad lucky...

Guess it illustrates better the 'monkey fighting snake' thing...

It's a monkey fighting snake! What did we before the internet?

said Johnny Wright on April 21, 2009 9:26 PM.

I just don't know how the human kind has lived for so many time without it...

JW, you'll never can say "I've seen everything about monkeys on the Internet." Never...

From your mouth to God's ears, Leo.

Wait, skip the monkey fighting, what the hell is a Monday to Friday plane? Does that mean they're on a 5 day plane trip? Are they in the 4th dimension where going from Monday to Friday is like driving from Barstow to SanBernadino?

An excellent question, Jungle. Vexing.

said Johnny Wright on April 22, 2009 10:15 AM.

I was wondering the same thing.

Given that they started with the topic of monkey-fighting snakes, would it have been too hard to come up with something like 'monkey-fighting snakes on a monkey family plane'?

said Tim on April 22, 2009 11:16 AM.

Geesh.
It's all about the monkeys, isn't it Tim?

Sarcky, It's always about the Monkeys...

"You cast your pearls before the swine, make the monkey blind... Don't you know you're going to Shock the Monkey. (Shock the monkey to life)"

Could Monday-to-Friday plane be a model that just can fly in week days? Like it's not allowed to take off on a Saturday or Sunday?

Just wondering...
