Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Returns to ‘Airplane!’ Cockpit as Roger Murdock in Wisconsin Travel Commercial (Photo)

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is getting back into the co-pilot’s seat for a TV commercial.

A TV commercial? What is it?

Well, it’s a 30-second advertisement for a product or service that appears during breaks in TV shows or sporting events.

Abdul-Jabbar will reprise his role as Roger Murdock from Airplane! for a series of three commercials for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, the Greater Milwaukee Business Journal reports. Abdul-Jabbar and Robert Hays, who played Ted Striker in the 1980 movie, will take the controls in the original cockpit.

We just want to let you know we’re all counting on you, Kareem. Good luck.

Check out Abdul-Jabbar and Hays on set below. [tweet https://twitter.com/Bucks/statuses/380835369534898176 align=’center’]
