Scotty Doesn't Know

Speaking of travel... I didn't realize it at the time, but the previous entry's title was a labored (though unconscious) reference to "Scotty Doesn't Know", a song featured in Sergei Eisenstein's expressionist masterpiece EuroTrip (2004). In the movie, the song is performed by Matt Damon and "rock" band Lustra (it remains their closest thing to a hit).

The movie stars Scott Mechlowicz, Jacob Pitts, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Kristin Kreuk, and sports cameos by superstars like Vinnie Jones and Xena. Oh, and surprisingly, it kinda sucks (but in a good way). Rotten Tomatoes gives it a rating of 47%, which is probably fair.

The song, however, kinda rules (at least if you're drunk, which I hope you are), and you can listen and/or sing along to it here.
