The birth of nuking the fridge

In the world of Indiana Jones, countless moments have become iconic in cinema history. However, one particular scene from 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' became famous and gave birth to a new pop culture phrase. In 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,' there is a scene where Indiana Jones survives a nuclear blast by hiding inside a refrigerator. The explosion blows the fridge into the sky, and Indiana Jones emerges unscathed. This scene was met with mixed reactions, with some fans finding it amusing and others considering it too far-fetched, even for an Indiana Jones movie. Steven Spielberg revealed that the idea for this scene was his own. The scene became so infamous that it gave birth to the phrase nuking the fridge. This phrase describes a moment in a movie or TV show where the plot turns so ridiculous that it stretches the audience's ability to suspend disbelief. Interestingly, nuking the fridge is considered an alternative to the phrase jump the shark, which describes the point where a television series goes off the rails in its ridiculousness. Spielberg expressed pride in contributing this phrase to popular culture.
