No self-respecting ceramic film archive would be complete without a nod to this classic: the pottery scene in the 1990 film, Ghost.

I’m guessing you don’t even need to see the clip; you know what I’m talking about.  Those muddy shenanigans have become quite famous.  

I taught pottery classes for years.  Just about every single class featured at least one Ghost joke.  When I first heard this diatribe from a pottery teacher on the TV show “Community,” I had to laugh:

“I will tolerate no re-creating, whether it’s ironic or sincere, of the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore pottery scene in Ghost. I’ve had to adopt a zero Ghost tolerance policy. If you so much as hum three notes from that Righteous Brothers song, with god as my witness, I will come at you with everything I’ve got.”

I decided early on to roll with it.  A framed poster of Moore and Swayze at the wheel proudly hung where I worked.  It now hangs in the entrance to my own shop.

Here is the original clip, followed by parodies from the TV show Two and a Half Men and the movie The Naked Gun 2½.  (What’s with the number “2½” in both titles?)

Fun stuff.  ∆

Running times: 3:35, 1:04, and 2:54
