Prepare for Take-Off at The Wisconsin Governor's Conference on Tourism
Posted on: 3/3/2014
Buckle your seat belts, putyour tray tables up and move your seats to their upright positions - NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and actor Robert Hays, stars of the 1980 comedy classic "Airplane!" are taking people on a tour of Wisconsin in a zany new set of aerial flyover 30-second TV ads for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. And in the commercial, Kareem, when viewing the beauty of the state says, “I can’t believe I ever left this place,” a humorous reference to his departure from the Milwaukee Bucks to the Los Angeles Lakers in 1975.
