The opening scene in coming-of-age comedy Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging is a memorable British movie moment and a Norfolk teen has now recreated it on TikTok with her family.
Ellen Smith, 19, from Worstead took on the role of Georgia Nicolson and spent three days making an olive costume using old cardboard boxes and papier-mâché which she painted over.
In the scene, Georgia turns up at ‘Slaggy Lindsay’s’ fancy dress party as a stuffed olive after agreeing with her friends to go as hors d’oeuvres as a joke, but when she arrives and sees her friends haven’t stuck to the plan she flees after everyone laughs at her.
While lockdown means Miss Smith can’t have all her friends round at the moment, her family took on the other roles with her mum Sally playing Jas, wearing a devil costume, and her sister Sophie as ‘Slaggy Lindsay’.
The clip has had over 2.6 million views on the TikTok video platform and she has now had to turn off her notifications as she was getting so many.
Miss Smith said: “My mum always put the film on when we were growing up and we watched it one evening recently and thought how funny it would be to give it a go and get the adults involved too and I didn’t expect it to blow up so much.
“We had a lot of fun and it is great that other people are enjoying it.”
