This dark and sinister theory about the Will Ferrell movie “Elf,” will have you never looking at the holiday classic the same way again.
According to one fan of the seemingly innocent movie, it is anything but….
Writing for the popular website Reddit, under the user name, “Batfan54,” he tells a sordid tale of Buddy the Elf being a pervert, a drunk, and a child abuser!
He writes, “About midway through the movie, Buddy hears Zooey Deschanel’s character singing from inside the locker room elsewhere in the store. He goes to investigate because, well, she’s singing a Christmas song and he loves Christmas! Turns out that she’s actually singing in the shower, and Buddy begins to sing along with her.
When she notices, she obviously freaks out and yells at Buddy to get out, who immediately clasps his hands over his eyes and makes a mad rush to the door, only to hit a locker. But afterward, Zooey Deschanel confronts Buddy and asks him why he was in the Ladies Locker Room while she was naked in the shower.
Buddy replies by saying, ‘I didn’t know you were naked in the shower’. Haha, Elves don’t understand showers, Buddy is so innocent! Joke landed.”
But, Batfan54, then goes on to point out that Buddy was shown earlier in the film, taking a shower in the North Pole, so clearly he knows what they are, and that one needs to be naked in them! “Buddy might not be the smartest guy, but he most certainly does know what a shower is, and just how naked one has to be to take one.
So what conclusion are we left to draw? Buddy, the sicko as he is, was actually trying to peep on Zooey while she was in the shower, and played his sick fetish off as innocence and just wanted to sing a Christmas song.”
The Scrooge of a Reddit user then goes on to question several other moments in the film which he claims don’t add up, such as when Buddy “brutally injures multiple children on their way home from school”, and this time he “uses his obsession with ‘Syrup’ to get horribly s***faced on the job” and in another “disturbing scene” he “uses his so-called innocence to verbally abuse a man with a disability”.
Batfan54 concludes that “Buddy is not the man you all thought – he is a demented man-child that’s using his ‘innocence’ to live out sick fantasies of abuse and sexual desire.”
I wonder what this guy has to say about “Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer?” or “Charlie Brown Christmas?”
In any case, enjoy these Holiday Classics as you will, and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
