Dig Asia - "Don't Cry" Video - 1983

Another early '80s music video that was clearly riding the wave of Indiana Jones' popularity was from the supergroup, Asia. (For those not in the know, each of the 4 members had previously been in famous groups and their 1st album was a huge hit in 1982.)

From their 2nd album, the 1983 single "Don't Cry". This video didn't get shown very often. I only saw it 2 or 3 times back in the day:

There have been several visual eggs in the Clone Wars series such as the Staff of Ra, Ark of the Covenant, a crystal skull, and even Indy's hat. They even had a dance number that played as an obvious homage to the opening of Doom, complete with soundalike music.

Hey Stoo, Could you circle where on the full photo? Thanks. Hope you are well.

I am very well & having a great summer. Hope you are too, Henry Double-U.

Dr. Jones' piece of graffiti is to the left of the Mickey Mouse hieroglyph.
(Oh, scheisse, another indirect Indy/Disney connection!)

Look in this target area:

Recent cover from the Economist. The main article includes a section titled "the last crusade."

Ah you beat me to it featofstrength. Well here's some screen shots. I think it sounds interesting, just a goof-off show very much in the vein of Robot Chicken. It's gonna catch some serious flak from anyone wanting a more serious show though.









Check out picture 2, just to the left, René Belloq's panama hat? (not the character Panma Hat lol)
The Indy Fedora looks cool, a little light of a color and no center crease, but still good.

looks like Lucasfilm just wanted to make some money off the already tired and cheap pop culture jokes. Robot Chicken, Family Guy, Lego humor...enough already. quit jerking us around and give us something real from the Original Trilogy Universe.

It also irks me that Lucasfilm and hardcore SW fans can find humor in this garbage like this, but dont see the same about the Holiday Special.

Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia: “The Gang Gets Trapped” is an entire show based on Indy.

From Mac in a hat reviews of Doom and Skull to Danny DeVito whipping an "ancient" vase...he even has a E.T. moment:

During the debate from George Washington University: “The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium,” Stewart said visiting the Fox News building was fun, because the Eye of Sauron was on top of it. He also noted Fox employees resembled the slave children from "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom."

I don't know that this thread is the best for this post, but a quick search didn't turn up a more suitable one, so I'm putting this here...

My girlfriend and I went to a local eatery a few days ago, and apparently someone responsible for naming the menu items is a fan of our favorite franchise - the "Gourmet Breakfast Sandwiches & Wraps" area of the breakfast menu features all the following items:

Dr. Jones
Ravenwood
Mutt's Breakfast Club
Little Abner
Short Round
Willie Scott
Marcus Brody's Power Wrap

You know, I'm not so sure if that's supposed to be an intentional reference to the Ark at all. The design is far from a 1:1 match with the Ark prop seen in Raiders (even in caricatured form), and indeed the coverline refers to whole another myth.

Indeed:

"Assange and his Pandora's Box".

No need to mix myths there.

This is one of the first ones I think of. The first time I heard Kevin Smith drop, "no ticket," I think I did a real life spit take. Good stuff.

Also, in "Malcolm in the Middle" Hal (the father) got a job at an electronics store. One night he decides to party with some young co-workers and the boss tries to stop him by closing up the store and dropping the gate. The Indy theme music starts playing as Hal sprints toward the exit, pencils propelled by a fan rocket through the air like spears, I believe a beach ball starts chasing/rolling behind him and Hal eventually slides under the closing metal gate. Of course, like Indy's hat, Hal dropped his keys and had to reach back to retrieve them before the gate closed. It was quality TV if you were an IJ fan. May have been a Season 4 episode. (Apologies if someone posted this already...I may have missed it.)

The new season kicked off deciding the fate of Dee and Dennis' infirmed Nazi grandfather...titled: "Pop Pop: The Final Solution"

Mac and Charlie search for an original Hitler painting, and Mac proclaims he'll finally BE Indiana Jones.

I can think of several The Simpsons and Family Guy references. My favorite is Bart running away from Homer acting as Indy.

On tonight's "Shark Tank", during a cameo, Seth MacFarlane referenced Belloq nonchalantly eating the fly, when casting one of the investors as a movie villain.

I'm sure there's a better thread for this, but I can't seem to find it. And while not a reference, the homage indicator is quite high. Plus, the ability to powerslide a horse -- yes, a horse -- underneath a truck has to be worth something.



The film in question is '95's Alluda Majaka.

That may be the most absurd thing I have ever seen. I loved it! The horse powerslide was phenomenal...especially given the fact that it seems fairly obvious that the horse was simply going to lie down before it cut to an overhead of the guy (and horse apparently) sliding under the truck bed.

Thanks for sharing! Of course I will now have to explain to my wife why I really want to watch some obscure, foreign movie that I know she's going to hate. Nothing new there though! Plus, who doesn't want to watch the brilliance of Chiranjeevi as Sitaramudu?!?
