An attendant found an oddly shaped cucumber in a cinema in Sydney, Australia after the screening of Fifty Shades Darker. In Norway, meanwhile, two badly-beaten cucumbers were also found after the screening of the film. Both stories had since gone viral with netizens debating whether it was just a publicity stunt.
Fifty Shades Darker Screening Took a Strange Turn
On February 13, Hayden Orpheum, a cinema in Sydney, posted a photo of an oddly shaped cucumber which one of its attendants found after a screening of Fifty Shades Darker. The cinema posted the photo via its official Twitter page with this caption: “That awkward moment when you find a cucumber in the cinema after a Fifty Shades session.” The hilarity which comes out of the situation made netizens think that it was just a publicity stunt. The suspicions grew because the attendant did not mind touching the cucumber with his bare hand as shown in the photo. The post can be found below.
While netizens debated whether Hayden Orpheum was just fooling the people, the same incident took place in Norway. A Twitter user who goes by the handler Malou Stitz also posted a photo. This time, the photo showed two cucumbers scattered on the floor of a cinema in Norway. The two cucumbers found in Norway were more controversial compared to the one found in Sydney. The photo also showed a dirty, crumpled tissue beside the two cucumbers. The post is found below.
