The first trailer for the movie about Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger was just released online and Tom Hanks is at his Hanks-iest…
Little did you know that Sully actually caught crap for being a hero. Not everyone was on board with Sully being hailed for his slick piloting skills…
(hat tip to Cass for that clip)
Sure, Tim Tebow saved one guy on a plane. That’s cool and all, but saving 150+ “souls” – even all us “insufferable d*ckwads” – by landing a giant aircraft on a river? WITHOUT ANY GUIDANCE OR AID FROM THE BIG MAN UPSTAIRS?!? There are heroes and then there are HEROES. Plus, I heard Sully’s got a better arm.
When you see all these recent stories about planes, you wonder, what would Sully do? WWSD? Like, when Selma Blair lost her mind on a plane and had to be carried off on a stretcher. Would Sully have pulled some kinda stunt – perhaps a barrel roll – to get Blair’s brain right? When a Singapore plane bursts into flames, would Sully have done loopty-loops to put it out? Or would he just casually coast by a waterfall? NBD, brah.

If someone doesn’t do a remix of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” with the lyric “I’m so Sully”, then scrap the internet. Shut ‘er down.
