Juliette Lewis has blue hair now, so thanks to Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, my “meh” idea for a Lunchtime Poll is actually totally relevant. That’s almost never the case!
I called EW’s resident hair dye expert Michael Slezak in for a consult, and he likes Juliette’s hair the best because it reminds him of one of Crayola’s most valuable crayons, Midnight Blue. We then reminisced about what a triumph it used to be to choose a blue from the box and have it turn out to be Midnight Blue, just as we’d hoped! Then I mentioned I also loooooooved Brick Red, and then Slezak became a tiny bit profound: “Brick Red is the Midnight Blue of reds.” We could talk about crayons all day or you could just vote already.
Dear everyone piping up about Katy Perry: I hear ya, but wigs don’t count.
Another great post from Annie Barrett! Now let’s all watch Sesame Street’s “How Crayons Are Made” video (orange, d’oh!) just for the taste of it, like Diet Coke.
