Snakes on a Plane: The PreParty
August 10, 2006 9:38 AM   Subscribe

Help me plan an awesome Snakes on a Plane party.

I am organizing a party for the Snakes on a Plane premiere in Vancouver, BC for 20-30 people and I would like any suggestions to make it super fantastic. The basic plan is to buy a keg and then drunkenly ride the bus to a late night showing of the movie. Decoration ideas, snack suggestions, music recommendations, activities, etc. would all be appreciated.

Thanks!

What you want are those spring-loaded snakes that pop out of peanut brittle cans. Nobody will suspect a thing.

These Arms Are Snakes?

But have you ordered glown-in-the-dark plastic snakes yet? Also, there has to be a place you can get those little plastic airplane wings they give kids on planes. Because everyone needs them.

Bobbing for snakes. Pin the Snakes on Sam Jackson. Paint your own SoaP t-shirt station with hair dryers so people can wear their fan art out.

You can buy cheap rubber snakes and wee toy planes at the local dollar store and tape them to your walls, or each other, or each other and then the walls.

Maybe you can arrange for a call from Samuel L. Jackson.

Put lots of live snakes on the bus.

I highly recommend Rattlesnake Shots. In my best Dave-Chapelle-impersonating-Samuel L. Jackson-impersonating-Samuel Adams "It'll get you drunk!"

Well, if you can't get some snake wine, you could mix up some snake in the grass, a rattlesnake shot or snake piss (which sounds even more disgusting once you get past the name and read the ingredients). Lots more here.

Lots of snake music, depending on your tastes.

And for $30, this is worth it to have a snake come slithering out mid-party.

Vomit bags containing the pre-preprinted tickets to the show (and/or other 'prizes').

This reminds me of a friend of my father's who supposedly gets freaked out by birds now because back in 1963 when she went to see The Birds at her college cinema, 2 guys snuck in a few birds and let them loose during one of the attack scenes. People freaked out. Possibly urban legend, but I believe it could happen.

There are these snakebite shots, none of which are the snakebite shot I've had, which is SoCo and lime, or the beer drink where you add cider.

Serve food and drink on airlines trays, with little bags of peanuts. Decorate the room to look like the inside of an airplane...print out a bunch of something like this and tack it to the walls. Line up the chairs and put paper headrests on them....that kind of stuff. Make an aisle. Dress like a pilot or an airline hostess (or whatever they call them).

Activities: find the terrorist (no I have no idea how to play it either), spin the snake (like spin the bottle), pin the fang on the snake.

Food - 'Mile High Club' Sandwiches - cut them into fang shapes, commonly known as "triangles".

Barf bags might be a nice touch too.

Psych yourselves up by having Anaconda and Airplane! play simultaneously on adjacent TVs.

Correction: Put the TV playing Anaconda on top of the TV playing Airplane!

A little bit of Whitesnake and Paula Abdul should help too.

Re-enact "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)"? Themed costumes based on the music video?

Or karaoke to this and the other aforementioned snake-theme songs?

Costume party based on all the various puns based on "Snakes on a Plane"?

The latest one, of course, based on the liquid ban, is "That's it! I have had it with these motherfuckin' shakes on this motherfuckin' plane!"

The invitations must be in the form of a personalized Samuel L. Jackson phone call.

Dude. This is so cool. I may be stealing all of these and throwing my own SoaP pre-party.

find the terrorist... I know it as Mafia. We could replace the mafia with snakes and the sheriff with Samuel L. Jackson.
