"Ready for dinner"
In a new Funny or Die video, Chloe Grace Moretz stars in ‘Snackpocalypse,’ a (fake) trailer about a “normal healthy girl” who loves carrots in a world obsessed with pizza and chips. In the trailer, Moretz must save her school from its descent into junk food-driven zombie chaos. Only she can do it, because she knows how to shoot a cross-bow into a broken vending machine to fetch an apple while wearing an outfit made 100 percent of dystopian leather.
Ultimately, the video is another plug for Michelle Obama’s healthy eating campaign, and she is featured at the end watching the fake trailer with some girlfriends and snacking on a full-sized carrot (which no one has ever done).
It is charming and will make you crack at least half of a smile. Watch it below.
