Guest Appearance in DBA in Space

Win a trip into space!

The DBA in Space competition continues today with the third question. This time I get to ask it, a sci-fi film question. No hints, but do a little research and don’t make a mistake. You only get one chance at each question to get through them. New questions are coming every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, so keep an eye out for the new ones.

I had fun filming it, and I’ve got a few outtakes below from my efforts. It was surprisingly hard for me to remember two or three lines in between all the other things I normally do and the podcasts I record.

Enjoy and good luck with the competition

Don't you love these guys hamming it all up!  Was "Mork calling Orson" an ad-lib or pre-written lines :-)

Any further news? I understand there was a winner and that's it.

Unrelated to anything, my 8 year-old daughter just saw the t-shirt from this competition and has decided that DBA should stand for "Dave's bushy armpits"... so uh, thanks there kiddo!
