Surely you can't want to visit Wisconsin!

Airplane Wisconsin tourism
I do want to visit Wisconsin, and don’t call me Shirley! Thus Airplane! is back in the news thanks to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Robert Hays agreeing to star in a video for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. And never fear, inflatable pilot Otto has returned as well (this is a brand new Otto, as the original has long disintegrated. RIP Otto.) Otto now has a cheesehead hat, because this is Wisconsin. Airplane! creators Jerry Zucker, David Zucker, and Jim Abrahams are all from Wisconsin, thus explaining things.

I grew up in Illinois, so I am familiar with Wisconsin travel commercials, and this will be an improvement! Will they mention the Dells? A mystery to be solved once the commercial airs.

So far the video isn’t online yet, but expect it to make the round on all the blogs that copy content from reddit once it does!
