For those who missed it, Dave Letterman had a hilarious skit tonight where his announcer Allan Kalter, hijacked the Six Flags bus, and ran over Mr. Six. It would have been funny enough, but it REALLY looked like the same bus and the same guy....real deal. I don't know how they could have gotten permission, though. Anyone else see this?
(The funny part is the first commercial on the break 30 seconds after was a SF commercial!)
GoliathKills said: And just to let everyone know, the bus was also at SFMW not too long ago, so there are probably more than one.
I would call that a virtual certainty, Parker. "The" bus was at SFoT when we were there, and I think I recall someone having THE bus somewhere up North around the same time. I wouldn't necessarily say "fleet", but it would surprise me if there weren't at least a few of them.
They SHOULD have run over the Vengaboys, ROFL! :)
edit: As for SF giving permission to do the skit, I'm sure they would have NO problem with it, it puts the SF name out in the public eye, at NO COST!! In addition, I believe satire is covered under First Amendment free speech guidelines...for now...;) *** Edited 7/22/2004 2:25:40 PM UTC by rollergator***
As said above, it is perfectly legal to make jokes or skits based on others, due to 1st ammendent rights. There is certaintly no law for it, because if there was, Martha Stewart, Bill Clinton, Krispy Kreme, and Michael Jackson would be suing Letterman's pants off.
