B17 – Making of “Don’t Mess with Texas” Anti-Litter Commercial, 1991

Man, I love the sound of roaring Wright engines in the morning! Nothing beats it. Have you ever seen the “Don’t Mess With Texas” anti-litter commercial that aired in 1991? I recently found some pictures of a B-17 doing an insane low pass over a film crew somewhere in the desert. After a little investigation I found that these were the actual shots on set of the “Don’t Mess With Texas” commercial.

For your pleasure, I’ve included some of the photo’s and the behind the scenes video of the commercial. I’m not sure if this campaign really worked though. If I could summon a B-17 by throwing trash from my car window, I’d be sure to load up my car with whatever trash I could find.
