In a good example of either banter or great PR (or both, probably great PR though) a cucumber has been found in a Sydney cinema after a screening of 50 Shades Darker.
The Facebook page for Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace shared the image of an employee holding out the fruit amongst empty seats.
“That awkward moment when you find a cucumber in the cinema after a Fifty Shades session,” the page wrote.
Regardless of the cinema’s ploy to get themselves in the news, this gaffe was worth it enough for the comments and responses from the general public.
Someone people joked about the fact the employee wasn’t wearing “protection”.
Others questioned why they decided to even hold the cucumber. the cinema said it was because the “lights were still down.”
The employee added that they weren’t too happy picking up the thing, even if it meant entertaining the social media masses.
“When you Google ‘regret’, it’s now the first image that comes up,” the cinema wrote.
“It’s probably innocent, some old lady making cucumber sandwiches to save money,” they continued.
“Cucumber sandwiches anyone? On us!”
Not everyone has a loved one to spend February 14th with, and I suppose this post serves as consolation for those single types. Thanks guys.
