Bucks legend Abdul-Jabbar, 'Airplane!' cast members make Wisconsin tourism ad

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Mar 3, 2014 - UPDATED: Mar 3, 2014

Wisconsin is a great place to travel to and enjoy, and don't call Kareem Abdul-Jabbar "Shirley."

Those are among the great takeaways from a new ad for Wisconsin tourism directed by Shorewood's Zucker Brothers, featuring Bucks legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and fellow "Airplane!" actor Robert Hays.

The bonus: The inflatable cheeseheaded emergency pilot.

Check out the ad in our video player.

Abdul-Jabbar, the all-time leading scorer in NBA history, will return to Milwaukee to appear for a game tonight against Utah at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Oh yeah...a fellow Wisconsin athlete joined in the announcement of the new ad Monday.

Nelson has starred in his own Wisconsin tourism ad.
