Guy drives audience crazy heckling the film “Gravity”

Starts griping loudly things like “Nice Soyuz procedure, Hollywood!” and “Oh yeah, because that’s what hypoxia as caused by rapid cabin decompression looks like you idiots!.”

Finally, the management come and remove him from the theatre.  Turns out he’s Chris Hadfield, Actual Astronaut.  So I guess he’s more entitled than most.

Reminds me of this somehow:

Update: to my extreme disappointment, this story appears to be a spoof. Alas.

    Wow. I’m really disappointed in him.

    • meggan

      It’s fake? Im glad. That was too weird and sad.

  • ddlinz

    How could an Astronaut be so uncool? Maybe the AXE bodyspray commercials lied to us. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDiKXypI4Dw

  • leadingedge

    It’s satire

  • Timothy Quigley II

    Fake news. Not real.

  • Colet C. Bostick

    Ah, the story’s worth it for the Brian Regan clip. Thanks!

  • Fr. Denis Lemieux

    It’s wonderfully fake, but oh so funny. Chris Hadfield has officially become, meanwhile, the coolest man in Canada. Did anyone see the YouTube video of him actually singing David Bowie’s Major Tom in space?

    • Noah Doyle

      Loved that video – it’s wonderful, and wonderfully sad; ‘Planet Earth is Blue, and there’s nothing left to do’. I think he must have known that he was going to retire after that flight/expedition.

    As others have pointed out, this is a fake news story. TheBeaverton.com is a satirical news website much like The Onion.

    As for the movie “Gravity,” a couple American astronauts were recently interviewed on NPR’s program “Science Friday.” One astronaut had spent several hours outside of the space shuttle, working on the Hubble Space Telescope. The other had lived aboard the International Space Station for several months.

    They said that there were some technical compromises in the movie which were not realistic, but there were also a great deal which was accurate. They thought that “Gravity” was visually spectacular and an exciting film, but both astronauts still prefer “2001: a Space Odyssey.”

    The entire interview with the astronauts can be read (or listened to) at this link:

    Too bad it’s fake news. I would have paid extra to see it with good heckling.

  • BillyT92679

    In space, no one can hear you fart.

    The best crazy astronaut story still appears to be this one involving jealousy and adult diapers: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/06/us/06cnd-astronaut.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

    “Astronauts can’t eat regular food and are addicted to Tang.”

    Brian Regan is amazing.

    I wonder what Phil Plait had to say about Gravity? Dang Windows Live Mail couldn’t figure out his RSS feed since he moved to Slate and I keep forgetting to surf over there from time to time. (Heck, until I checked, I thought he went to Salon. Derp.)

    Oh, here it is: http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2013/10/04/ba_movie_review_gravity.html (Warning: Spoilers!) Turns out there are some boo-boos, but only one of them sounded serious to me. Plait loved it.

    Greydanus loved it too, come to think of it. I should probably grab the DVD when it comes out.

    Also, Brian Regan is amazing.
