"The Flying Car" is a six-minute 2002
short filmwritten and directed by Kevin Smith. It features View Askewniversecharacters Dante Hicksand Randal Graves, who were introduced in " Clerks."
While stuck in a traffic jam, the two have another philosophical, pop-culture-laden conversation — this one sparked when Randal asks Dante what he would hypothetically sacrifice in exchange for marketing rights to a flying car.
It is similar to the scene in the original movie where they are driving to the wake. In both they are in a car and Randal convinces Dante a situation (in the original: performing oral sex on yourself, in this scene: losing a foot and being raped by a German scientist and his friends in exchange for the flying car) isn't as perverse as it sounds, then calls him a pervert for agreeing with him.
The short film was the first commissioned for "
The Tonight Show" and premiered there on February 27, 2002. It also appears on the 10th anniversary "Clerks. X" DVD.
