A Shrek fan has pointed out an X-rated joke that went over their head as a child.
And many fans of the popular film, cannot watch it in the same way ever again, the Mirror reports.
The much-loved film, released 20 ago, follows Shrek the ogre as he rescues Princess Fiona from the highest room in the tallest tower of a dragon-guarded castle and (spoilers) the pair fall madly in love.
And although the fairytale had all the ingredients to make Shrek a blockbuster family favourite, it appears the creative team at DreamWorks also managed to sneak in a few jokes that are strictly for the older audience.
TikTok user @Kathy_Martinez05 has posted a series of videos highlighting ‘childhood films filled with adult jokes’ and one featuring a Lord Farquaad scene in Shrek has racked up more than 8.4 million views as people couldn’t believe it had bypassed them without notice.
It shows the film’s bad guy tucked up in bed with a cocktail as he says: “Mirror, mirror, show her to me. Show me the princess.”
The mirror begrudgingly shows an image of Princess Fiona gazing dreamily out of her castle window, at which point a small bump appears to rise under Lord Farquaad’s zebra-patterned bedding.
He then takes a quick glance under the sheets with a somewhat uncomfortable expression.
The clip was uploaded with the caption: ‘Did anyone else catch that?’
Thousands of viewers were left stunned by the ‘traumatising’ revelation, as one person responded to say: “Why? Why did they do that? Who agreed to animate that? Hello??”
A second said: “My last 1% of innocence I had just left my soul.”
A third wrote: “I will never forgiver you for this” and a fourth commented: “The fact that they actually put time to animate that.”
Another added: “I DIDN’T REALISE IT RAISES OH MY GOD NOOOO,” and someone else admitted: “When I was younger I thought he spilt his drink…”
