Hmm, Where Have We Seen Will Smith's Men in Black 3 Monocycle Before?

Men In Black 3 Monocycle

Sony has debuted a new chase scene from their upcoming sci-fi sequel Men in Black III, in which Will Smith and Josh Brolin (playing the young Tommy Lee Jones) hop onto a pair of newfangled high-tech monocycles to chase some alien perps. But where have we seen these super-speedy circular vehicles before? Mr. Garrison, take "It" away...

First, the men in black in their space-age cycles (via Yahoo):

"Do you have these in the future?" teases Brolin's Agent K. "No," the Fresh Prince responds.

Well actually, in the year 2001 an enterprising Coloroadan named Mr. Garrison, fed up with airport security lines, invented such a contraption...

Yep. Flexi-grips. The vehicle of the future! Er, or the past. Whatever.

Men in Black III cycles into theaters May 25.

    Wow, the special effects are so horrible it hurt my eyes. Will Smith's first flop?

    • Jen Yamato says:

      Word is tracking is abysmal, plus rumors of skyrocketed budget... definitely an uphill battle.

      • 2+2=5 says:

        This movie looks like it's on the border of infantile, one of those crappy products that only gets made because it's a popular sequel and has big name stars attached. Sadly, it will be a huge success in foreign markets.

    • Mathais says:

      You must be too young to remember Wild Wild West.

  • Max Renn says:

    Having the third flexi-grip inserted is coincidentally the same feeling as watching Men in Black 2.

  • bradslager says:

    You can actually purchase a version of these.

    The same company has ridable TRON light cycles as well.

  • ezscreener says:

    MIB3 folks evidently went here for inspiration. Sure would be nice if they gave Kerry some props.

  • General Grievous says:

    I'm sure General Grievous in Episode III had one of these...

  • Patrick says:

    Obviously the SouthPark and the MIB 3 designers drew their inspiration for their monocycles from this inventor who has real life examples

    Hiya, I’m really glad I’ve found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish only about gossips and internet and this is really annoying. A good web site with exciting content, that is what I need. Thank you for keeping this site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can not find it.

    It is a nicely put together idea and should be respected for that. Thank you for saying what needed to be noted.
