Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is an iconic figure for not only being one of the greatest basketball players of all-time, but his influence on pop culture. The most notable influence of course, being his portrayal of Robert Murdoch in Airplane! the 1980 comedy classic.
Having played with the Bucks, and winning a championship in 1971 with Milwaukee, Kareem was asked to be part of a tourism ad for the city, and in it they had him reprise his famous role as a pilot in Airplane! but this time they had him wearing his number 33 Bucks jersey.
