This Lost Scene From 1984's "Bachelor Party" Starring Tom Hanks Left Me So Confused

I’m a huge fan of Tom Hanks. Castaway? All-time. Saving Private Ryan? Powerful. You’ve Got Mail? Probably one of the greatest films ever created. But I had no idea that he starred a 1984 movie, Bachelor Party, which is probably a product of Tom Hanks not wanting anyone to know he did this movie considering the scene you’re about to watch. The premise of Bachelor Party seems simple enough, per IMDB:

Rick Gassko is about to marry Debbie Thompson. Her parents hate him. Her old boyfriend hates him. They all have money and he gets a cut of the crap games on the Catholic school bus that he drives. His friends decide to give him the bachelor party of all bachelor parties in an expensive hotel with booze, adult movies and hookers. As the players catch wind of the elements of the party, each adds a little monkey wrench so that one set of hookers ends up giving demos at the bride’s shower, the brides friends end up dressed as hookers in a room with a number of non-English speaking Japanese businessmen, and so on, as things get out of hand.

Just kidding. That’s the most ridiculous description for a Tom Hanks movie I’ve ever read. But as ridiculous as the movie’s description may be, it pales in comparison to this scene that I randomly stumbled upon where there’s a donkey doing cocaine in the middle of the party.

The scene leaves me with a lot of questions. Why was there a donkey in the middle of the party? How did this vast array of people find themselves circled around a stripper (or hooker, per the movie’s description)? I mean, it legitimately looks like there’s everyone from a 70-year-old woman to a punk rock band.

Furthermore, why did the man in the trojan helmet smash a bottle over his head after the stripper (or, again, hooker) revealed herself? And finally, how did this donkey learn how to snort lines of cocaine? I didn’t minor in zoology, but I’m pretty sure the initial reaction of a donkey finding lines of cocaine would be to lick them before sniffing them.

And last, but not least, what happened after the donkey snorted those three lines of cocaine? Did he kill the stripper? Did he kill someone else? I want to find out, but I don’t necessarily want to spend the time (or money) renting this movie on iTunes just to see if a literal drug mule killed a stripper in a movie from 1984.

I guess some things are best to be left to the imagination.
