It says a lot about who Mike Myers is that by the end of the video I had forgotten that he was dressed as a British airman.

Mike Myers, such a cool and humble guy. A fellow Canadian I’m proud of. We need another Myers comedy movie just for the crazy ass laugh. In fact, throw in Jim Carrey, another Canadian, and stand back! Hahaha (insert nuclear mushroom cloud here) lol 👍

Most of the uniform is correct except the beret badge, he is wearing a Parachute regiment beret badge with a Queens crown on it, which of course is modern. During operation market garden and during WWII a Kings crown would be on the beret badge.Apart from that the Denison smock and 44 pattern webbing and Ammo boots, gaiters etc are pretty much spot on.

If you take one thing away from this interview it should be that you never know the effect you have on other people. George Harrison never met Mike Myers the same way that Freddie Mercury died before Wayne's World was made and released but their lives are intertwined just the same.

Thumbs up if "So I Married an Axe Murderer" is still your favorite Mike Myers flick (I guess it's still okay to thumbs up if it's only your second favorite behind Shrek or Wayne's World)

I like Mike Myers as a late night guest. I don't think he is everyone's favorite interview because he is not the mainstream superstar that everyone wants to see. But I think he consistently delivers solid conversation with funny and personal anecdotes that most celebrities either have not experienced or cannot otherwise share so coherently.

Wow, both of those stories were great. I really hope Mike Myers has a career resurgence soon. He's so underrated, but then again after the Love Guru I can see why he fell off the face of the earth so to speak. Whether he does another Austin Powers movie or not, I just hope to see him in more movies. A really genuine seeming guy, and seems like a heartwarming kinda fellow to know.

The character in a Bridge to Far is a composite of several historical figures. The umbrella was really carried during the battle for Arnhem bridge by British Paratrooper Major Allison Digby Tatham-Warter DSO. The history of this man in the battle and in the airborne escape afterwards (Operation Pegasus) is truly exceptional.

Lt. Col. John Frost: "Hello, Harry". Maj. Harry Carlyle: "Hello. Johnny". Lt. Col. John Frost: "You know, Harry; I always wanted to ask you, but didn't because I knew you so very much wanted me to and I didn't want to give you the satisfaction; but why the hell do you always carry that bloody umbrella?" Maj. Harry Carlyle: "Memory. Bad...memory. Never could remember the password. Knew no Jerry would carry one. Had to prove...I was an Englishman".

Loved CHUM FM!!!!! I used to be able to pick it up in Niagara County, NY across the lake from Toronto when I was a teenager back in the early 70's. Unlike Western NY where the Right Wing and Christian wack jobs owned the air waves, I could listen to bands like Frank Zappa, Hendrix, King Crimson, etc. In Western NY we were stuck with WKBW where the heaviest music at the time was bubble gum music ie: Sugar sugar by the Archies. Here in Western NY, they wouldn't allow that "demon" music. Ha ha ha ha ha!
