This genius train joke in Top Secret! is making everyone’s day better

We’re grateful to Empire deputy editor and author Nick de Semlyen for sharing these 19 seconds from the brilliant Top Secret!

It’s an all-time classic and 19 seconds very well spent.

It was the film writer/directors David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker made after Airplane! and the outrageously cancelled after just six episodes, Police Squad!.

Anyway, of all the Top Secret! gags we reckon this is our favourite. It’s definitely the most complicated.

And just a few of the things people were saying after Nick’s train gag tweet went viral.

This scene from the 1960s Batman may be the perfect TV moment
