Remember back in June 2009 when President Obama killed a fly during an interview and a firestorm erupted? PETA kicked off the controversy by condemning the act saying, “He isn’t the Buddha, he’s a human being and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act.” 

The org later clarified its position, but not before a giant debate had ensued regarding respect for all lifeforms, including flies and the like.

Three years later, it appears that Obama’s “Flygate” inspired this amusing scene from the new Paul Rudd/Jennifer Aniston film “Wanderlust.” The movie tells the story of two New York City urbanites who decide to escape modern society for a more bucolic life. After trying out a few other living arrangements, they end up on a commune that “could just change their lives forever.”

Check out the scene below to see how the commune reacts after Rudd’s character kills a fly at the dinner table.
