Of the numerous pandemic-stroke-apocalypse-stroke-doomsday motion pictures experiencing a resurgence within the age of coronavirus, few are funnier or better-made than Shaun of the Dead. The self-proclaimed romantic comedy with zombies has gone down as a cult basic, and now it’s drawing new admirers.
A number of Shaun followers have seen a real-life similarity between our pandemic and that depicted within the film. Right here’s what was greatest described as “Shaun of the Dead goes stateside”:

Of all of the teams you’d decide to resemble zombies, you couldn’t decide higher than hardcore Trump supporters – a joke all of those Tweeters appear to have missed. Sorry to come back on all liberal elite, however the folks on this photograph are morons worthy of the comparability. “To not get political or something.” I feel they made it political after they wore MAGA memorabilia.
Be at liberty to drop a remark with your personal jokes, Shaun of the Dead associated or in any other case down under. Is there one thing else you assume these protestors resemble? We’ve already had Stephen King and The Purge, however maybe there are extra on the market? Or, for those who’ve been upset by the imply issues the man on the web mentioned, be happy to maintain it to your self. That was unusually testy wasn’t it? Regular service will likely be resumed subsequent time, defo.
