    This is awesome! I love this commercial. Rick Moranis left acting to be a father and raise his kids after his wife died. Great man for doing so.

    I always felt Moranis was kinda annoying and overrated (Space Balls aside), but fuuuuck it was good to see him here.

    Though I've always liked him, he never struck me as particularly great. It seems to me it was his walking away from the business that made him quasi-legendary.

    Still, it's cool to see him again.

    Rick Moranis was the Keymaster. He could do nothing but ruthlessly slaughter puppies and kittens all day for the rest of his life and he'd still be a legend.

    For me, his roles divide into two groups: (1) Dark Helmet; and (2) everything else.

    He had a few fun roles. I am glad to see he is doing well. The commercial was interesting and gave me a laugh.

    This may be the one thing that heals our partisan divides--uniting together to find the assailant and beat the crap out of him.

    The only one allowed to beat the crap out of Rick Moranis is Audrey II :ua:

    if he was in it he likely used a stunt double! That said I would totally watch a TV show called "Sucker Punching Rick Moranis" but I think Rick might get wise to what's happening after a few episodes and constantly be practicing situational awareness, which could be problematic!
    Looking on the bright side I think finding the suspect will be easy....if he was wearing an "I Love New York" shirt he might be switching to an "I Punched Rick Moranis" shirt soon. :yes:

    Maybe he just wanted a sample of his brain tissue.
