cS: Willie Nelson's accidental astronaut cameo
quote:
When country music legend Willie Nelson set out to make a video for his song, "You Don't Think I'm Funny Anymore," premiering this Saturday on MTV, he invited some of his celebrity friends, including Woody Harrelson, Owen Wilson, Jessica Simpson, and even veteran anchor Dan Rather to appear alongside him.

He did not however, invite Alvin Drew.

For that matter, when NASA astronaut Alvin Drew visited Austin last November, his plan was to go running with a friend. That he ended the day not only on the set of, but appearing in Nelson's music video came as unexpected.

There are reports that the debut of Willie Nelson's music video for "You Don't Think I'm Funny Anymore," featuring Woody Harrelson, Owen Wilson, Jessica Simpson, Dan Rather and astronaut Alvin Drew has been delayed until the weekend of February 22-23. The video did not air yesterday on MTV as had been promoted on Nelson's official website.

Below you can see Willie Nelson's "You Don't Think I Am Funny Anymore" video.

Look for STS-118 astronaut Alvin Drew in the left background starting approx. 3:35 into the video.
