WATCH: The A-Z of Simon Pegg

Simon Pegg

The following clip emerged on YouTube yesterday, as a kind of promotional device for the film A Fantastic Fear Of Everything. It’s an A-Z of Simon Pegg’s best movie moments, but seems to be culled solely from the films Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul, and A Fantastic Fear of Everything (and it’s a bit NSFW, language wise).
