For this weeks act annoucment, we welcome Maysun Ryia and friends to Horrific: A Night of Horror Themed Belly Dance presenting Shaun of the Dead! Their plan is to sit back, relax and wait for it all to blow over at the Winchester.
Did you know? The famous cornetto scene was because of a hangover.
Shaun of the Dead famously kicks off what’s become known as the “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy,” which also includes Hot Fuzz and The World’s End. The trilogy is so named because the films share certain thematic concerns (they’re all in some way about men who have to learn to grow up and move on with their lives, for example) and because Cornetto ice cream snacks appear in all three. So, how did that start? According to Wright, it’s because he once ate a Cornetto to get over a hangover, and thought it would be funny if Nick Frost’s character, Ed, did the same after a night of drinking.
“It’s the weirdest thing you would want to eat at that time in the morning,” Wright said. “When I was in college, I got very, very drunk once, and I had a Cornetto in the morning and I felt a lot better. So, it became my hangover cure, and it still is.”
How's that for a slice of fried gold?!
