Lighthouse Vs Ship

This was a commercial a long while ago. I still find it amusing.   (Text below):


Somewhere in the Irish Sea:

…again, this is the USS Montana requesting that you IMMEDIATELY divert your course 15 degrees north to avoid a collision. Over…

(voice on the radio) Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid collision.

This is Captain Hancock. You will divert your course. Over.

(voice on the radio) Negative Captain. I’m not moving anything. Change your course. Over.

Sir, this is the USS Montana. The second largest vessel in the North Atlantic fleet. You WILL change course 15 degrees north. Or I will be forced to take measures to ensure the safety of this ship. OVER!

(voice on the radio) This is a lighthouse mate. It’s your call… Hello? Captain? I think he’s gone. Fair enough.
