MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Two stars of the 1980 comedy film "Airplane" will be in a Wisconsin tourism ad to be unveiled next spring.
Actor Robert Hays and basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will appear in the original cockpit from the movie, with aerial footage of Wisconsin mixed in.
This is not the first Wisconsin tourism ad in which Hays has appeared. He portrayed a confused fisherman in his first ad.
The new one was shot earlier this month by directors David and Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams. It will be unveiled at next year's Governor's Conference on Tourism in March.
Jerry Zucker, Hays, and Abdul-Jabbar will appear there.
This is the first time Hays and Abdul-Jabbar have reunited since they made the movie. Abdul-Jabbar played for the Milwaukee Bucks before achieving Hall of Fame stardom with the L.A. Lakers
