This is a scene from the movie, "Sleeper" where Woody Allen is awoken from cryogenic state some 200 years into the future. He was from the year 1973 and the future instead of being a world of health food has gone in the opposite direction.
Woody Allen in this scene is answering questions about objects and video from the 20th century. Howard Cosell on ABC's Wide World of Sports is going over Mohammad Ali and his career and the scientist asks him what it is.
Miles Monroe, a jazz musician and owner of the Happy Carrot Health-Food store living in Manhattan in 1973, is cryonically frozen without his consent, and not revived for 200 years. The scientists who revive him are members of an underground movement: 22nd-century America seems to be a police state ruled by a dictator, about to implement a secret plan known as the "Aires Project" (sic). The underground movement hopes to use Miles as a spy to infiltrate the Aires Project, because he is the only member of this society without a known biometric identity.
Woody Allen (born Allen Stewart Konigsberg on December 1, 1935) is a Jewish American screenwriter, director, actor, comedian, author, and playwright. His films often draw heavily on sexuality, dry comedy, literature, philosophy and of course his Jewish Identity. Being a New Yorker, a lot of his comedy seems to focus on the the mindset of the Jews of European ancestry as he is. Mr. Allen is also fond of playing the clarinet and considers himself a jazz musicians and at one time played often at small concerts and shows.
Allen's biggest scandal as a celebrity came with the divorce of his ex-wife, Mia Farrow and he began a relationship with Mia Farrow's adopted Korean born daughter, Sue-Yi Previn. The media often cited that Allen was in a relationship with his stepdaughter. But his is not factual since he was not married to Mia Farrow and Sue-Yi was the adopted daughter of famous composer, André Previn and Mia Farrow (hence the name Sue-Yi Previn). The biggest part of the ordeal was the 34-year age difference between Sue-Yi and Allen.
