The La Quinta dubbed sci-fi movie ad

In miscellany, I was wondering why the La Quinta ad which features two guys in a rocket extolling the virtues of La Quinta rooms seemed so familiar. Finally I got it. The movie is The Phantom Planet, and was lampooned on Mystery Science Theater 3000 (the link is to Bill Corbett’s take on the episode).

The specific scene you’re watching is right when the dark-haired guy (Maconnen) speaks the excruciatingly cheesy phrase, “You know, Captain, every year of my life, I grow more and more convinced that the wisest and best is to fix our attention on the good and the beautiful…”.

Luckily, shortly after the scene, the dark-haired guy is flushed out into space and dies. 🙂
