There Was An 'Elf' Joke in Netflix's 'Eurovision' That No One Picked Up On According to Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell is opening up about the one joke in Eurovision that nobody picked up on.

During his interview with Variety, the 53-year-old actor dished about how in the Netflix movie, everybody believes that elves exist, which was actually designed to be a nod to Elf.

“You know what’s funny? Nobody got the subtext to that,” Will shared. “We were trying to put in this bit about how Lars has issues with elves and elves are stupid and thought, ‘That’s going to get such a funny laugh because of Buddy the Elf’.”

However, it “just went over everyone’s head.”

Will added that it was “supposed to be such an obvious joke that we should have my character just hate all things elf-related, and I starred in Elf. And that just kind of flew by.”

Elf has become a cultural holiday classic movie since its release in 2003, and it also starred Zooey Deschanel, James Caan and Mary Steenbergen.

One of the stars also opened up about why there was never a sequel to the movie. Find out here…
