You can now finally watch John Candy smoke and eat a hot dog at the same time


Those aren’t pillows!

Few comedians boast such a wide array of raucous comedy performances as the late John Candy. The legendary Canadian star, who died in 1994 at the young age of 43, managed to rack up around 37 acting credits in what was arguably the golden age of Hollywood comedy cinema. One film that stands out from its laundry list of bonafide smash hits is 1987’s Planes, Trains and Automobiles, which is surprisingly making the rounds right now.

That’s right, the popular John Hughes Thanksgiving classic just got the 4K remaster treatment. But the best news? There is said to be 75 minutes of never-before-seen footage released from the archives of John Hughes that was believed lost forever and has been included in this new release. Yes, the new footage even gives you the rare opportunity to watch John Candy eat a hot dog while smoking a cigarette before tossing his dinner medal into a bin across the waiting room. Sold!

Check out a brief snippet of the brand new footage, courtesy of the Twitter user Justin Decloux:

For the uninitiated, the film sees no-nonsense and edgy lawyer Neal Page (Steve Martin) cross paths with kind-hearted but slightly annoying salesman Del Griffiths (John Candy) while he’s on his way to meet up with her family for Thanksgiving to unite. Constant hustle and bustle follows with cars driving on the wrong side of the Autobahn, impromptu sales of shower curtain rings, gentlemen being picked up by their family jewels – you name it, it’s probably in Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

Suffice it to say that the picture has garnered a huge cult following and is largely remembered as one of the best comedies of the ’80s. No small thing!

The new 4K version of Planes, Trains and Automobiles is now available in time for Thanksgiving. You can now finally watch John Candy smoke and eat a hot dog at the same time
