Killer Shrimp? Just Another Excuse to Watch the “Day-O” Scene From “Beetlejuice” Again

Killer Shrimp? Just Another Excuse to Watch the "Day-O" Scene From "Beetlejuice" Again

I avoided including a video of the dinner party scene from “Beetlejuice” in last week’s post about the death of actor Glenn Shadix because I thought it was a bit cliche. Good thing, because now I have an even better excuse to feature the clip. News from the UK about “killer shrimp” has caught the attention of the interweb, despite there being even less to fear from these predatory sea creatures than the killer bees everyone was worried about twenty years ago. Still, it made for a fun Best Week Ever post yesterday calling for “Killer Shrimp: The Movie” (starring Snooki). And now I can continue to spotlight Shadix while reminding everyone that the “Day-O (Banana Boat Song)” number from “Beetlejuice” concludes with an attack by the shrimp cocktail. Watch it for the billionth time after the jump.
