The late Farley would have made a great agent.

Tom Cruise was not the first actor to heroically hold onto an airplane as it flies off the runway. And the typical action scenes of a Hollywood blockbuster are easily interchangeable. Some wonderful editing by Tom Spence shows us what happens when you replace Tom Cruise in every trailer scene of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation with Chris Farley.

The airplane scene from Black Sheep perfectly lampoons the Tom Cruise stunt we've been repeatedly subjected to leading up to the film's release. Several car and action scenes from Tommy Boy fit seamlessly as replacements for the actual movie.

As luck would have it, a documentary about the comedic genius, I am Chris Farley, was just released. So should this magic mash-up inspire you to revisit Farley's best works, go one step further and learn about his legendary life, too. It will be well worth it, because Chris breathed comedy, and his life story is not cluttered with questions about his wacky religion or sexuality.
