This is hilarious on so many levels. The unnecessary machinery. The bustling GIs (armed!) who are needed to assemble it. Stan Lee's trademark insane narration (I think "Blast it!" counts as two wasted syllables). The gestures. The urgency. Never has making some phone calls been depicted so dramatically.
