PHOTOBOOTHS IN MOVIES & TV

People Are Taking the Train Again

A commercial for BB, Austrian Railways

Produced by Demner, Merlicek & Bergmann, Aired 2000, Austria

In this "so bad it's good" advertisement for Austrian Railways, Jackie Chan stars as an occasionally superhumanly strong, occasionally giant man who wreaks havoc on a railway station. Part of his reign of terror involves kicking over a photobooth, riding on top of it as it slides down the stairs, and then somehow retrieving a set of photos from the machine though he was never inside it and it was unplugged. Perhaps a close reading of the commercial is not necessarily in order.

Check out the shot where he rides the booth down the stairs; apparently Jackie doesn't always do his own stunts.

It really must be seen to be believed.
