Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have revived their Shaun of the Dead characters for a cute PSA to keep fans amused during the Coronavirus crisis.
In the video, which the two actors shot separately for obvious reasons, Pegg and Frost rework lines from their cult movie to highlight just how important self-isolation is right now. Pegg even urges Frost not to go to “the Winchester,” the fictional London pub which is swarmed by zombies in the 2004 horror comedy.
“Remember what happened last time?” he adds knowingly.
Toward the end of the PSA, Pegg gets a little more serious, telling Frost: “Above all, don’t be a t**t about things. We’re all in this together – don’t be selfish, look after each other, and give someone a call if you think they might be lonely.”

Pegg and Frost are firm friends who starred together in each of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy of movies directed by Edgar Wright and co-written by Pegg. Shaun of the Dead (2004) kicked off the trilogy and was followed by the action comedy Hot Fuzz (2007) and sci-fi comedy The World’s End.
Their PSA follows an all-star cover of “Imagine” assembled by Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot, which was also designed to raise our spirits during these trying times.
Below, you can check out Pegg telling BBC America’s Graham Norton about how he completed the so-called “Nerd Trifecta.”
