It's an odd montage to open with given that Flight of the Navigator doesn't really have much to do with dogs, other than the fact the main character has one for a pet and it does somewhat lead him into trouble. But the sequence does set up the date -- July 4, 1978 -- and South Florida setting via the event's banner. After the opening there is some more typical Fourth of July fun: Slip 'n Slide and sparklers. Then, something I've always wished would happen to me on Independence Day, a non-probe-involving UFO abduction in which the saucer is piloted by the voice of Pee-Wee Herman.
Check out the clip after the jump, and have a fun holiday weekend!
