Big Apple Air

Clips from In Living Color are now on Hulu, which is fantastic news for 90s-era pop culture fans like myself.

Below is a sketch that I'd never seen before called, "Big Applre Air." Now that the subways are running again it seemed topical. This is from roughly 1992, and I'm amazed/impressed at how little subway stereotypes have changed. The homeless, the bored look in everyone's eyes and the guy who tries to slip in as the doors are closing.

Also: note the Twin Towers in the establishing shot.
