Sully Makes a Splash in New Rock Video

Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger seems to have the thumbs-up move down.

Oh, yeah, that's Captain Chesley Sullenberger making a cameo in a new rock video, alright.

The hero of US Airways Flight 1549 flashes a thumbs up and a quick lip-sync of the unforgettable "Oh, yeah" refrain in Chickenfoot's song called -- "Oh Yeah."

Fronted by Sammy Hagar, Chickenfoot is also comprised of guitar hero Joe Satriani, ex Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and Chad Smith, the drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Sully saved all 155 people aboard Flight 1549 in January, when a bird-strike clogged the plane's engines, forcing the pilot to ditch the plane in the Hudson River.

After weeks of being celebrated for his heroism, Sully returned to the news recently when the National Transportation Safety Board met for several days of hearings about the near-tragedy, during which the hero pilot expressed doubts about the efficacy of current bird alerts.
