Stay at home, have a cup of tea, and wait for it all out, this is the message of actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who created his hat zombie comedy movie ”Shaun of the Dead” as a coronavirus public service announcement.
The cult 2004 movie, directed by Edgar Wright and co-written by Pegg, is a parody of the Zombie apocalypse horror genre-including of the 1978 horror ”Dawn of the Dead,” which was also remade in the same year.
In a famous scene, Shaun and Frost played respectively, how Shan and Ed deliberately went through the zombie apocalypse, In which millions of people in the movie are asked to stay home and avoid contact with loved ones.
The characters discuss the plot to kill Philip (Bill Nighy), the Syrian stepfather, and ”the mother drinks a cup of tea and waits for things to unfold.”
They finally decided to go to their favorite pub, The Winchester, instead.
In Frost and Pegg’s new video, released Thursday on YouTube and viewed more than 1.29 million times, they reimagine this scene for the present day.
Instead of moving forward to hit the club, they both agree to follow the National Health Service’s guidelines on letter infection, and they don’t go to the pub.
”If you can, stay at home, have a cup of tea, and wait for all this to blow over,” Pegg says. ”Above all, don’t be a tw*t about things. We’re all in this together. Don’t be selfish, look after each other, give someone a call if you think they might be lonely.”
