Lt Frank Drebin in Naked Gun 2½

Lockerbie commentator, Barry Walker compared George Thomson's performance in the third Al Jazeera documentary "Lockerbie: What Really Happened?" to that of bumbling police Lieutenant Frank Drebin in the opening scene of Naked Gun 2½:

I thought George Thomson was the best thing in the Al Jazeera documentary. What a pro. How he managed to listen to Jessica de Grazia's ludicrous claims without corpsing escapes me.[4]
He was even more po-faced inspecting the flat where this March 1988 terrorist summit took place. I was particularly impressed by the several ashtrays on the "conference table" - better than a bottle of HP sauce and a bottle of brewers' condiment! That made it look really authentic. Bit of a crush with just six seats round the table though!
He even kept a straight face in the Malta library where he "discovered" Abu Talb was in Malta in October 1988. Who'd have guessed! And Dalkamoni too! Must have been a double being watched by the BKA in Frankfurt!
I wondered where they got this daft idea of a terrorist summit involving all of Qatar's current or recent enemies. Then it struck me - Lieutenant Frank Drebin in the opening scene of Naked Gun 2½![5]
