Actors are idiots. Just because you're around something a lot doesn't mean you know how to do it. I've been to Magic Mountain a hundred times, that doesn't make me an engineer. My dad was a pilot for Delta. I talked to him about it all the time but I promise you, If I get behind the stick, we're goin' the fuck down. Look at her for christs sake. She's even wearing those dumb boots and hat like a director from the 40’s. I'm amazed she isn't yelling into a big megaphone at some actors in blackface for one of them to sit on a tiny cactus then run in circles for two minutes.
You have to see the picture of her on set to fully get the joke.
