Gary Busey auditions for Mars reality show on 'Kimmel'

Posted on

When news broke that there was going to be a reality show where people traveled to Mars to establish a human settlement in 2023, lots of people joked about who they would want to send up there. Well, Jimmy Kimmel has a suggestion. On his show last night, Kimmel showed the ”first official video application” for the Mars program. Wearing a tin foil hat, a shirt with the word Mars on it, and a purple cape, Gary Busey hummed and danced around a miniature solar system, claiming he should be one of the lucky few that gets to go to Mars… because he’s been there before.

”When you find yourself eating part of your calf muscle, you should not be on Mars!” Busey said. So true.
