DEF: Bob & Doug McKenzie “Take Off”

Bob and Doug McKenzie are characters performed by comedians Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas, originally as the hosts of a sketch on SCTV titled “Great White North.” The duo turned the skit into a film, Strange Brew, and a recording career that spawned one single that reached Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart.

On this date in 1982, that single, “Take Off,” which also features Geddy Lee of Rush, reached a peak position of number 16, where it would spend two weeks. Today, the McKenzie brothers’ “Take Off” is the Daily Eighties Flashback.
