This is one of the numerous(though most take very little time, and this is definitely no exception; in fact, at 27 seconds(!), it's the very shortest, not counting TV spots and such) extras on the DVD for Shaun of the Dead. More specifically, it's a re-enactment of an instantly recognizable scene from the film, and the comedic duo are indeed playing it straight. Only one thing is different. Frost does an impersonation of Sean Connery, and Simon Pegg does an absolutely uncanny Michael Cain impression. This clearly lasts exactly as long as it can without the 2 leads cracking up, and it is no wonder that they do. It's this kind of joking around on set, among many other things, that enable cast and crew to endure the many long and hard days of working on a movie, by lowering the tension. And it is also hilarious for us fans to see, and heck, maybe the veteran, iconic actors(from Great Britain, although they are famous around the world) both enjoy seeing this kind of thing. After so many years in the business, one would hope they've developed a sense of irony about themselves. There is no language, violence or gore in this. I recommend this to any fan of the flick. 10/10
