David Letterman In...Airplane?!

This is weird but cool.  Someone found a clip of David Letterman discussing on his old NBC show the time when he auditioned for the role of Striker in the movie Airplane.  

It's strange to think that if Letterman had gotten the role, his legendary TV career may have never happened.  Also, we hear that Letterman wanted to do Stupid Human Tricks with the passengers on the plane, and that cost him the job.  OK...that last part is untrue.  Check it out!
