We're three weeks from Halloween, but this might be the best decoration of the year. Someone built a "zombie containment unit" that looks like there's an actual zombie inside.
It's a metal box with a TV screen on the front that looks like a window. And it shows a guy in zombie make-up banging on the glass. Plus the walls actually move when it shows him pounding on them.
And right when it shows the glass break, you get blasted with compressed air.
Apparently it's impossible for kids to NOT do the Whip / Nae Nae dance when that song comes on . . .
Two pee wee football teams were in the middle of a game in Milford, Massachusetts last Friday when it started playing over the loudspeaker. And about half of the players on BOTH teams stopped playing to dance to it.
One team ended up scoring a touchdown because of it.
One of the biggest plot holes in "Home Alone" is that the phone lines get cut toward the beginning of the movie, when a tree falls on the wires.
So there's no electricity . . . the alarm clocks don't go off . . . the family almost misses their flight . . . and they can't call Kevin once they realize they've left him behind. But LATER in the movie, Kevin is able to call and order a pizza.
Now, 25 years later, someone on Reddit has finally come up with an explanation. Quote, "I always assumed the tree actually severed the main trunk line to the whole town, but local calls within the same exchange still worked."
So, the long-distance service was down, but a call to the local pizza joint could still be made. And a higher-up at AT&T actually CONFIRMED the theory. He told the "Huffington Post", quote, "In 1990, that was absolutely a plausible scenario."
Except that Kevin's dad IS able to call the neighbor's house. He leaves an answering machine message about Kevin being home alone, and the burglars hear it.
But the guy who came up with the theory says the long distance could have been cut JUST to Kevin's house. Or to some houses and not others. And someone else suggested that maybe the neighbors had a different long distance carrier.
