This hysterical Saturday Night Live clip features Alec Baldwin playing the role of American Airlines Captain Steve Rogers, who came on the show to issue an official apology to mister Baldwin after the actor was removed from an American Airlines flight earlier this week.
Baldwin was booted from an LAX to JFK flight on Tuesday for playing the iPhone game "Words With Friends". The fantastical hoopla gained national media attention as well as turning a spotlight onto the wildly popular Scrabble-like app created by Zynga.
One of the funniest moments occurs when SNL news anchor Seth Meyers asks Baldwin (Capt. Rogers), "Don't phones interfere with the planes communication system?" Baldwin replied;
"You don't believe that do you Seth? Would you really get on an airplane that flew 30,000 feet in the air if you thought one Kindle switch could take it down? Come on!! It's just a cruel joke perpetrated by the airline industry and we would have gotten away with it but Alec Baldwin was just too smart for us. He really is something Seth."
Bazing! I could not agree more with Alec Baldwin. The man is a hero.
