Talladega Nights shocker: PSB get a mention! LOL

#1 Post by mindboy » Sun 03 Dec 2006, 10:20 pm

Hi! Dunno if this has been mentioned before. Yesterday I've watched the DVD of "Talladega Nights" - a comedy starring Will Ferrell (main character) and Sascha Baron Cohen (Ali G, Borat). The movie came about half a year ago, so maybe this was discussed... Anyway, it was pretty thrilling to hear the PSB mention, all of a sudden. It was in the scene where Sascha B. Cohen's character, who is french Formula-1 driver and gay, appears in the bar (the movie takes place in Texas) by the karaoke machine, jazz music stars, bar visitors are shocked by the sudden change of music. The barman explains that they have jazz just in case, also they have "the Pet Shop Boys and Seal", with irony in his voice!
Well the movie came about the same time as Fundamental was released in USA... Check it out on DVD if you haven't seen it!
Chris Heath: Why you're surfing?
Chris Lowe: Coz we can!
Neil Tennant: Exactly. :D

That's not the real question, it's from the rental. And the (repeated) thread is about PSB mention and not the way i've seen it. Hope you'll enjoy the movie when it comes out there anyway!:wink:
