One fun fact
about "Monty Python And The Holy Grail
" is that the 3000 first viewers
on the New York premiere
, got a free coconut
with the ticket
This is a very funny promotional stunt, completely in character, considering Monty Python's taste for silly, out-of-place absurdities.
This is an event I'd really like to see for myself, because of the sheer
intensity of silliness
involved. Free edibles
or other SWAG
handed out at premieres are not that uncommon
, but a coconut
is a fruit
that is completely useless without the utilization of some coconut
tool. Plus it's very large and not very convenient
dragging all the way home after the movie is over.
I can only imagine what the people among the first 3000 thought, as they got their limited edition coconuts handed out at the entrance of the show, and I can only guess at what the masterminds of the idea were thinking as the 3000 coconut wielding people were heading home through the streets and public transportation system of New York.
