Now Playing Tracks

For those of you not “in the know”, during the filming of Indian Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark the cast and crew all suffered dysentery.  The Cairo Swordman was famously only shot because Harrison Ford was about to shit himself. John Rhys-Davis was in full costume as Sallah one day and shat himself.  Literally they had to unwrap him from his arab robes and clean the entire thing.  Can you imagine what that must have felt like?  How mortified he must have been?

Years later I heard about the story when Cracked.com ran an Indiana Jones article where they placed an image of Sallah:

Sallah

with the following caption:

Bad Dates!

…also, I shit myself!

And thus began a joke that culminated in my friend and I making the demotivational  poster of John Rhys.
