Simon Pegg thrills fans by recreating the iconic Shaun of the Dead scene for his Christmas special

Simon Pegg recreated one of the most iconic scenes from Shaun of the Dead in a festive Instagram post.

The actor, who played the lead role in the 2004 zombie movie, recreated the hilarious scene where Sean goes to the corner store to buy Cornetto while oblivious to the zombie outbreak.

The 52-year-old strolled along the street while addressing the camera and giving his fans a special message.

Famous moment: Simon Pegg recreated one of the most iconic scenes from Shaun of the Dead in a festive Instagram post.

Simon delighted fans with the video, which included all the little details, right down to his little ride on the sidewalk.

When he gets to the store, he heads out to buy his cornetto and thinks about what he can photograph.

The clip ended with a sweet message wishing everyone “Greetings of the Seasons and Happy New Year” while the Christmas song plays in the background.

Simon admitted he wants to follow in Tom Cruise’s footsteps after the star jumped out of a helicopter and wished his followers a Merry Christmas.

Simon’s video caught the attention of Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright, who jokingly commented, “This is a complete rip-off.” You will hear from my attorney.

Simon and friend Nick Frost previously reprized their roles in Shaun of the Dead in an effort to get people to stay home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The duo, who played Sean and Ed, took to YouTube Thursday for a PSA where they parody the famous scene where they hatch a plan amidst a zombie outbreak.

Funnily enough, however, Simon urged his colleague not to go to the Winchester pub, which was in stark contrast to the advice he was given in the movie, resulting in disaster.

The funny clip sees Simon, 50, on the phone to Nick, 47, as they outline their next steps, but rather than face an onslaught of undead, in real life they discuss how they will deal with the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.

Well, call my mom, Simon said, and make sure she’s okay. If Philip is injured, follow NHS guidance to the letter.

Phillip was of course Sean’s father in the movie, played by Bill Nighy, who was unfortunately bitten by one of the deadly zombies.

The star then warns his friend to head to the local pub and, referring to the hit movie, adds, “Remember what happened last time.”

He also urged Nick to be aware of those most at risk, adding: ‘If you can, stay home, have a cup of tea, and wait for this all to be over.

Above all, don’t get too carried away with things, we’re all in this together. Don’t be selfish, take care of each other, call someone if you think they might be lonely.

However, Nick jokingly denied some staples when asked if he had any toilet paper, replying that it was one in his ‘last sheet’.

The camera showed him sitting at a table with a large amount of toilet paper.

Warning: hilariously, Simon urges his colleague not to go to the Winchester pub, which was in stark contrast to the advice he was given in the movie, resulting in disaster

The video concluded with a written message urging fans not to panic and reminding everyone who was in this together, adding the word “love” from Simon and Nick.

It comes weeks after Simon revealed that the producers of Mission: Impossible 7 have pulled production on their latest film from Italy to protect the cast and audience from the coronavirus.

The actor said Paramount Pictures was “extremely wary” of an infection spreading near its Venice location, and that it had no choice but to suspend filming.

Speaking on BBC Radio 6, when asked if he was filming the seventh installment of the franchise, Simon replied:[We’re] Not in Venice, where I’m supposed to be.

I think Paramount was very prudent and sensible and pulled production out of the gun.

“It’s such a big group of people, we were filming carnival sequences and it was unwise for us to stay so we walked out.

Simon, who plays technical agent Benji Dunn in the series, continued, “I think it would be inappropriate to complain about anything other than the fact that there is a lot of disruption for everyone.”

STAY HOME: Nick also urged to be aware of those most at risk, adding: 'If you can, stay home, have a cup of tea, and wait until this is all over.'
