Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) dir. Michel Gondry
A Skiving Snackbox is a range of sweets to make the user appear to be ill. They are among a range of products from Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes by Fred and George Weasley. The user develops strange symptoms depending on the type of sweet eaten. The purpose of these were to make a student appear unable to stay in class. Most came in two colour-coded parts: one that would cause the malady, and one that would cure the pupil once they had left class.
Q: What did you wanna be as a kid?
It was always something to do with music. I was never a big fan of school. At night I was Bruno the world’s youngest Elvis impersonator and then the next day you’re going to school and learning about fucking Christopher Columbus and stuff. It could be eighty and ninety degrees in Hawaii and I would still wear my long sleeved shirts. I couldn’t play sports because I’m still three feet tall. I still remember those feelings that I got as a kid, and as of today nothing has changed. Not a single damn thing.
