New Crime Deterrent? Otto From Airplane

Blow on the tube, baby:

- He fits in a car's glove box, appears at a flick of a switch and when a woman has finished using him, she can just pull the plug and he deflates. He's the "Buddy on Demand," a blow-up man launched on Tuesday with the aim of making solo female motorists feel less nervous about driving at night.

...

"We're not saying that an inflatable man is the only answer but we do hope it will give women extra confidence and make journeys in the dark less fearful," said Jacky Brown, the spokeswoman for Sheilas' Wheels.

Plus, he's hung like a friggin' Wookie.

Via Wardrobe Door.

Correction: Gordon reminds me it's OTTO from Airplane, not Otis, as I wrote.

For some reason, when I was a kid, we would call scarecrow-type fake people -- clothes stuffed with newspaper and stuff, like you put out at Halloween, with a fake head -- "Otises," which I think came from some 1970's movie I can't remember now.

Anyway, Otto/Otis, that's why I have that confusion.

Anyone remember what movie had kids calling their manikin-man an "Otis"? Or was that just something they called it my hometown?
