Subliminal Keto message in Scott Pilgrim movie


This short scene from the fantastic movie ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ always intrigued me and stayed in the back of my mind for years. Then I discovered keto and it all finally made sense. :smiley:

Fascinating! Well, now I have to watch the movie. :grinning:

That’s a short clip, so I’m not sure the full context of that scene, but what intrigues me is the subliminal message of this really skinny kid, talking about eating bread all the time, and supposedly it makes you fat.

@ChrisW do you remember anymore of how that scene plays out?


That’s the thing, that’s the whole scene and it was never mentioned again in the rest of the film. It’s a very random, left-of-field moment in the movie. That’s probably one of the reasons it always stuck with me.

But yeah, watch the movie, it’s a weird video game inspired indie action flick where the hero has to fight all his new girflriend’s evil exes to prove himself. It’s great!



How do you link to a scene. The L word scene is my favorite.


Just copied and pasted the web address of the youtube video. Same as below but without the inverted commas.
