Lucky Man, Lonnie Johnson!

Now, listen,

Lonnie's always a crowd pleaser

and tonight is no exception,

because tonight the Lucky Man fueler

is running for the first time anywhere-

the Lonnie Johnson-designed

quadra-vane blower.

For those of you

who arent mechanically inclined,

I'll just say for now

that the quadra-vane blower is

a brand-new concept in supercharging...

brought to you by

the good people at FastCo.

And it is reputed to increase the power

of the FastCo power plant...

by 16% over its normal

2,000 horsepower.

Now, that is pumpin!

Okay.

Go, Lonnie.

[Engine Starts, idling]

[Engines Idling, Revving Loudly]

[P.A. Announcer]

Oh, my God!

[Gasping, Screaming]

There's been an explosion!

Ladies and gentlemen,

theres been an explosion!

please stay off the track!

We have to have room

for the emergency vehicles

and the fire trucks to get down.

I know youll wanna know whats going on.

We'll let you know as soon as we know.

please stay off the track!

[P. A. Announcer]

And there he goes!

The man is simply unreal!

Man, he just doesnt care!

I was just lucky.

Can you believe it, folks?

Let's go, Lonnie.

That's why they call Lonnie Johnson

the Lucky Man.

I mean, that's a close squeaker

for any normal man,

but for Lonnie Johnson it's all in a days work.

Lets hear it for the Lucky Man,

Lonnie Johnson!

[Cheering, Applause]

Get him back up to that tower

and get him checked out.

[P. A. Announcer]

Lets not forget the staff

here at Speedway too.

Had it not been for their

very fast arrival on the crash scene,

it might have been all over.

But thanks to the Speedway staff,

they make this sport as safe as it is today.

Lets give em a hand!

[Men Arguing, Indistinct]

Jesus.

You wanna get up and catch

this other tire, Kid?

David Cronenberg

David Paul Cronenberg, CC OOnt FRSC (born March 15, 1943) is a Canadian filmmaker, actor and author. Cronenberg is one of the principal originators of what is commonly known as the body horror or visceral horror genre. This style of filmmaking explores people's fears of bodily transformation and infection. In his films, the psychological is typically intertwined with the physical. In the first half of his career, he explored these themes mostly through horror and science fiction, although his work has since expanded beyond these genres. His films have won numerous awards, including the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival for his film Crash (1996). more…
