Here are some fun facts about Wayne’s World – released on this date in 1992!
It started out as the brainchild of Mike Meyers (thank you!) and was a very popular Saturday Night Live sketch. It spawned a whole new language: “schwing!” and “ya…and monkeys might fly outta my butt!” for example.
It was the second SNL movie to be made – the first was The Blues Brothers. Wayne’s World remains the the most financially successful SNL movie to date.
It had a HUGE soundtrack and introduced a whole new generation to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
It’s on Netflix – watch it. Party on.
