What's really funny is seeing Jackie Chan after the Wright brothers find him.
Phileas Fogg: Have you seen our companion?
Wilbur Wright: You mean the half-naked Chinese man with a cow skull on his head singing Frère Jacques?
When Fogg, Passepartout and Monique are escaping by hot air balloon in Paris, Passepartout ends up hanging from a rope attached to the basket and crashing into things. A lot. When he hits a statue, Fogg comments "Very impressive; I'd have let go by now."
