Eating Peeps is a venerable Easter tradition in many quarters. But far more frightening than their alarming sugar content and their day-glo colors, did you know that the yellow species of Easter Peeps (Peepus Flavidus Domesticus) was actually featured in Alfred Hitchcock’s film classic, The Birds?
Of course, you didn’t…because it’s simply not true.
However, the folks at Wooden Nickel Shorts are also not afraid to blend fact and fiction, as you can see in this humorous film below which is set in an world where marshmallow Peeps star as man’s worst predator in one of the most popular films by Alfred Hitchcock.
You can see the the funny, short video below. Enjoy the Peep show!
