Shrek-Themed Raves Are Somehow A Thing

Shrek-Themed Raves Are Somehow A Thing


It seems like Shrek fans are everywhere these days, often taking their love of America’s favorite CGI green ogre to strange new places; such as the time they spammed an anti-abortion website with Shrek-based erotica, or how they collectively remade the first Shrek movie with a patchwork of increasingly bizarre homemade scenes.

Not to mention the trend of Shrek-themed weddings, which are just like normal weddings but with costumes, green body paint, and a best man who’s a literal ass. 

The event proved so popular that it inspired several other Shrek raves, and now there is a full-blown cross-country tour. Yes, everyone in America will have the chance to hear EDM remixes of Smash Mouth songs (we assume) while grinding up against a stranger in a Lord Farquaad costume. Of course, we also have to point out that packing an indoor space with hundreds of devotees of a character known for his excessive flatulence is perhaps a recipe for disaster. 

But people seem to be having a great time, and as the event’s posters note, it’s “dumb just come have fun.” Whether or not this ends up paving the way for an Antz-themed rave, or a Bee Movie-themed club night, remains to be seen.
