Fargo the movie - trivial trivia!

Being from Minnesota, The Coen Brothers, and especially Fargo are banners we hold up high. I've always loved the movie - but when I first saw it, I was completely taken aback by a scene with the night time parking attendant. I had just worked on a movie in town, called Overnight Delivery, and Bix was a PA on that flick. So what the hell was he doing in Fargo? It took over 20 years, and I finally got the answer, and made this little video. I'm hoping this will make, "May I have your ticket please?" the new "These pretzels are making me thirsty." You betcha!

*Warning* Spoilers for the movie Fargo

here's the video - http://player.pbs.org/viralplayer/3008914522

I liked it! I laughed, and Mrs Danger asked from the other room what I was laughing at.

Very nice!

I haven't watched Fargo in quite a while. I'm tempted to give it another spin soon.

Awesome, Bobby, thank you! I'm in Minnesota, too, and when the name Bix Skahill popped up during your video, I perked up and laughed. I've never met Bix, but I say his name all the time. The way they say his name in the credits of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie makes me laugh every time and it's become something I just blurt out a lot: "Bix Skahill and his Big Band!"
