10 Snakes on a Plane Spoofs That’ll Make You Nostalgic For 2006

Drakes On A Plane

Posted by on

Remember back in 2006 — before Facebook, Twitter, and pretty much everything else that rules the Internet now — when everyone was in love with Snakes on a Plane or at least the idea of it? It was a simpler time when nothing was funnier than Samuel L. Jackson yelling about motherf—ing snakes on a motherf—ing plane. Eventually the constant stream parodies caused the movie to be tied with Borat for the most overdone comedic reference of 2006. There are a few distinct types of motherf—in’ parodies, most of which are quite bad, but a few of which are still fun in a nostalgic, early days of memes way. Here they are, from worst to first.

10. Celebrity Impressions on a Plane

What’s great about this video is that it combines overdone impressions (Christopher Walken, Jack Nicholson) with a topical reference that was immediately dated by the time the video hit the Web. It’s the 2006 equivalent of a YouTuber doing an impression of Stewie from Family Guy as one of the cops in True Detective.


9. Intentionally(?) Bad Parody on a Plane

There’s stuff that is so unintentionally bad that it’s funny, stuff that presents the aesthetic of a low quality production but still accomplishes laughs, and stuff that is just plain bad. Guess which category this and the army of videos like it fit into.


8. Mash-up Trailer on a Plane

Wouldn’t it be funny if Samuel L. Jackson swore about snakes in movies that he’s not really supposed to be in? What a hilarious contrast in tones! Now excuse us while we travel back in time to 2006 to explain to whoever made this what #sarcasm means.


7. Fan Fiction on a Plane

A literal, actual excerpt from some good ol’ Snakes On A Plane fan fiction, titled Snakes On A Plane: The Montage: “A snake tore some poor f—‘s eye out, but one look from Flynn told Honky-boy to roll with it if he wanted to keep the other eye. All right. It was show time. Officer Nelville Flynn was gonna go kill some muthaf—in’ snakes — Badass Style.” Folks, I think we have the script for the long-awaited Snakes sequel right here.


6. Math Joke on a Plane

Get it? Because in mathematics, a “plane” is a flat surface that has only length and width….wait, don’t walk away!


5. Snakes on a Plane Before Snakes on a Plane

Tons of fans made parodies after the movie was announced, sure, but Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were downright soothsayers: They put slithery reptiles aboard an aircraft in Raiders of the Lost Ark 25 years before Samuel L. Jackson had to fight them off.


4. Pop Culture References on a Plane

@holymountain

There are two sub-categories for this one: fan-made pop culture references, like the terrific Drakes On A Plane as seen above, and pop culture referencing the movie, like the quick joke the developers of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes put into the game, seen below, since Nick Fury is portrayed on-onscreen by Jackson.

Speaking of our man Jackson…

He’s probably more tired of the lame jokes than us fans are, so he is a saint for still going along with them, for somebody’s sake, all these years later.


2. [Creatures] on a [Vehicle] Other Than a Plane

Above is Bears On A Bus, a parody that replaces the animal and the type of vehicle and hopes hilarity ensues. Here are more [Things] On A [Vehicle] parodies on YouTube, which we will let speak for themselves: Raccoons On A Space Shuttle, Snake On A Windshield (this one seems fairly plausible), Kangaroos On A Jetski, Snails On A Plane (also plausible and more annoying than terrifying), Pigs On A Tram, and the frankly adorable sounding Sheep On A Car.


1. Edited for TV Snakes on a Plane

The absolute, hands-down, no-question, undoubtedly greatest Snakes On A Plane parody can be seen in the movie itself, as long as you’re watching an edited version on TV. (Lucky for you IFC shows the movie uncut.) The movie actually might have been a lot more interesting if it featured monkey-fighting snakes on a Monday-to-Friday plane.

Inauguration Alternative

Bill Murray On Repeat

It's a movie "Murray-thon" all-day Friday on IFC.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Brockmire Premieres April 5 at 10P

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
