Random Castaway Note

A random conversation led to talking about Castaway. I ended up looking to see if it was based on a true story. (It's not.) I did discover this interesting note about a parody commercial:
A FedEx commercial during the 2003 Super Bowl parodied the final scene of the film, in which Chuck returns a package to its sender. In this version, the woman answers the door, and when Chuck asks what was in the box, the woman replies: "Just a satellite phone, GPS locator, fishing rod, water purifier, and some seeds. Just silly stuff."
