Glad to be of assistance. 8)

I remember someone posted it a while back, and it was just a case of searching "Ugly Betty paintball" on YouTube.

Actually, if we could find that thread, it might have a few other cases of references to the Warriors in it; maybe some that haven't been mentioned in here yet. hmm, maybe.. :-k

I watched the American Dad episode yesterday. The DJ character is played by the principal and we can listen to Baseball Furies Chase song while the 4 nerds are trying to escape.

This list makes me wonder how many people get these references. Beauty Shop, for instance, is a film for women. I saw it with my friends (only women) and they had never heard about The Warriors. I explained why we could only see the DJ’s mouth but unfortunately they didn't show any enthusiasm or interest.

I can't think of anything, but I thought of a parody in A Bronx Tale, which could fit....

Calogero (to Lorenzo, his Dad): Mom doesn't let you go to the bar either?

Lorenzo (to Rosina, the Mom): Whad am I gonna do widdis kid?

Rosina: 'Ey, I dunno. I've had'em all day.

Instead, she says, "'Ey, I dunno. I've had'em all day-i-yay.", while she's clicking bottles and is suddenly wearing the bandanna, hoody, etc. And, suddenly, Lorenzo and Calogero are both wearing Warriors vests and....


btw, R. De Niro was considered to play Cowboy, but he turned it down, I believe.

Rumor also has it that Tony Danza was going to be Swan, which, considering that a Warriors vest ends up on Taxi, is kinda fitting

Wish I knew which episode that was on. lol Guess I'd have to watch Taxi on DVDs.

Yeah, I think I could picture Danza playing Swan. He was on the husky side. I wonder if he woulda been able to run like that.

Better yet, just watch a portion of the show - the flashback sequence has the relevant bit:

It's a low-res capture

watch the clip - you can see not only the diamond-cut piping, but the indentation of where the warbird used to be

h
mmm...I saw that coming

found that that episode was from 1982, so they recycled an old Warriors vest.

Tom Hanks as a Warrior.... hmmm.... hmmm....... NAH! One qualification, though, could be his running back and forth across the US in Forrest Gump.
