Striking Similarity: Tim Allen, Spaceman

In Toy Story (1995), Tim Allen voices Buzz Lightyear, a Space Ranger. During the film, he hitches a ride with a pizza delivery truck, notably a Toyota.

In Galaxy Quest (1999) Tim Allen plays Jason Nesmith, an actor who once portrayed a spaceship captain. While planning a gig to visit fans, Nesmith demands a limousine, saying "The last time I did one of these gigs, they shoved me in the back of a Toyota."

Coincidence? I think not. Ok, maybe I'm sick, but you can't help but watch Galaxy Quest and think this might be a reference to his role as Buzz. No? Not so obvious? Whatever, I'm a winner and I know it.
