So this is one of those things that has sat on the internet for (at least) months in plain site, but JoBlo has picked it up and run with it as if it’s new to the tubes, which pretty much means it’s new. That’s some serious Baudrillard shit going on right there, as the culturally memonic fire hose creates an environment where simple tossing something out as new makes it new. A simulacrum of novelty, to get all highfalutin about it.
In any event, it’s a thing you’ll see around and you may as well see it here. Just don’t think JoBlo crawled through caves and dodged boulders or anything– motherfuckers got lucky on YouTube.
The story is that Steven Spielberg wanted to play a prank on Harrison Ford during a scene in Temple of Doom in which he was all tied up and vulnerable to such shenanigans. Thus he invited Barbra Streisand, Carrie Fischer, and Irvin Kershner to set to play out a cute little scene and to make insensitive comments. It was filmed, that film was preserved but rarely shown and became rumor.
Whatever the source of the video, it’s obviously somebody filming a viewing of the footage, as it contains crowd laughter. Despite that, it has been a difficult thing to scrounge up over the last few decades. So while it may have been on the internet for nearing a year and is being falsely claimed as “new” or “recovered” or whatever, it’s still not something you’d run across any day, so enjoy Indy fans…
Here’s the transcript, as pulled from the YouTube description.
