This video is supposed to be the pilot for a TV show called Heat Vision and Jack. Starring Jack Black as the hyper intelligent former astronaut Jack Austin, who now roams the dusty roads with his trusty companion the talking motorcycle Heat Vision. As you probably figured, the two spend their time saving damsels in distress from scary aliens, and running from “the man” who wants to take Jack’s brain and use it for evil purposes. David Hasselhoff and Knight Rider, consider yourself owned.

Here’s the “official” story about the clip.

Heat Vision and Jack was created as a 1999 pilot for Fox. Written by Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab, directed by Ben Stiller, this series was passed over by Fox despite critical acclaim from those who’ve been lucky enough to see it.

The 30 minute pilot is about an astronaut (played by Jack Black) with a medical secret who is on the run from the evil Ron Silver and the rest of NASA, with the help of a talking motorcycle called Heat Vision (voiced by Owen Wilson).

Rumor has it that there’s a Heat Vision and Jack feature film in the works.

    Now I can understand Wilson’s suicide attempt. Then again, any time Jack Black is onscreen, I want to die.
