Many people attempt to take their beloved animal companions everywhere by claiming that their pets are medically required service animals. This is taken to an absurd extreme in a new comedy video, where the heroes of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom attempt to board a commercial airline jet with a raptor in a pet carrier.
Set several years after the events of the original Jurassic World, Fallen Kingdom will reunite former theme park manager Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) and raptor trainer Owen Grady (Chris Pratt). The two are recruited to a team that returns to the ruins of the Jurassic World theme park with the intent of rescuing as many of the dinosaurs as possible before a nearby volcano erupts and destroys the island on which the park was built. The movie will also see Owen reunited with Blue - his favorite animal out of all the raptors he trained in the first film.
The new video from College Humor, which can be viewed above, seems to depict Owen and Claire after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, attempting to get home with Blue in tow. Naturally, the agent at the ticket counter has issues with allowing a clearly dangerous animal into the passenger section of an airplane. This prompts Claire and Owen's insistence that the raptor in the pet carrier is perfectly harmless and an emotional support animal needed to treat Owen's social disorder. "I get anxiety, and I need her to calm me down," explains Owen.
Claire backs Owen's claims, confirming that Owen "wouldn't even have the courage to talk to you right now if she weren't here." She goes on to describe Owen as "the most cowardly man you've ever seen." When this fails to buy them any sympathy, Owen and Claire change tactics, with Owen saying that he's checked the airline's bylaws and there's nothing that specifically forbids him bringing a dinosaur on-board the plane. Claire eventually demands to speak to a supervisor as Owen tries, and fails, to show how tame his "service animal" is, as it starts eating the pole he uses to give her a treat for obeying the command to "go full Beast Mode."
Funny as this is for fans of the franchise who are eagerly awaiting Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's arrival on the big screen, there's a clever bonus joke in the background for eagle-eyed Greek mythology fans. The name of the company Owen and Claire chose to fly with is Icarus Airlines. Their motto? "Fly Higher. Never Stop." The company logo also features a wing dripping with what could be either wax or blood.
