Lost Cinema Classics: Orangutan Flips the Bird in Cannonball Run 2

So its a beautiful Friday morning and I couldn't think of a better way to start the day than with a clip from one of the cinematic masterpieces of our time, Cannonball Run 2.

These movies were just an excuse for Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise to drive in cool cars together and get a paycheck. They were also an excuse to cram just about everyone and everything you could possibly imagine into and hour and a half.

The highlight of the movie has to be the orangutan limo driver. Monkeys (apes to be precise) are always funny and this one might be the funniest of them all.

Now you may wonder what prompted me to post such a video. There's an easy answer and I will share it with you. This morning, while taking a shower, I started doing my impression of the orangutan and giggling uncontrollably. It consists of me blowing raspberries, baring my teeth and flipping the bird. Its a pretty fantastic impression too. I really capture the spirit of the animal's performance.

That's about it, really. I'm not too bright.

  1. I like them because they are apes. Did you ever watch Orangutan Island? Sweet Jesus that was a phenomenal show.
