Thirty years ago, John Moschitta was known as the Fedex fast talker.
Today, he's Mr. Nonstop for Jet Blue.
Aside from the fact that the direction lacks the artistry of the Joe Sedelmaier original and that Mr. Moschitta looks a little cramped in that middle seat, it's a funny idea, just not a new one. Nonstop is relevant in business travel, especially if it means I get to spend less time next to a guy who yammers on and on and on and on...
After sitting through an interminably long show the previous year, a few of us thought it would be a great idea to have him read the show's credits and speed things up. It worked. The show went from nearly four hours to just a shade over two.
Needless to say, I had a lot of friends that night.
