Icon27 That Footage of Neil Armstrong Playing Saxophone on the Moon Was Clearly Faked

For nearly half a century, Americans have been spoon-fed a thrilling but implausible picture of bravery and brilliance. We are evidently to believe that in 1969, a heroic crew of astronauts led by Neil Armstrong voyaged to Earth’s moon, descended to its surface, played a rip-roaring jazz-blues number featuring Armstrong on saxophone, and then returned safely to terra firma.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

I'm old enough to remeber this like it was yesterday. I always thought there was something odd about the footage, but was convinced of it's validity when Johnny Carson played a clip on his show.

When Neil Armstrong's wife came out with that cat and said how she kissed Neil's balls before every moon landing I got goose bumps. Then when he told her to move the cat so he could pet it, the screen went black for a second than switched to a baseball game. Wow. What memories.

That is freaking hilarious. Now, if this comes out as "true" somewhere, the Onion needs a medal. With a sax on it.
