With the start of the Festival of the Arts at Epcot, guests have been going crazy for the new Figment popcorn bucket. Now, Eric Idle who played Dr. Nigel Channing in the Journey into Imagination with Figment attraction has commented on the popcorn bucket craze.
Guests waited in line for hours just to purchase a Figment popcorn bucket and many have shown up on resell sites like eBay. Some are selling for hundreds of dollars. Eric Idle joked on Twitter the other day about a possible popcorn bucket of himself.
Another Twitter user joked that they wouldn’t wait in line for a Figment popcorn bucket but would have waited in line for an Eric Idle popcorn bucket. Idle responded with “Hm. I’m going to make one. Only one. It’ll be a one off. A million and a half dollars.”
We know he’s just joking but how hilarious would it be to see a popcorn bucket in the shape of Eric Idle?
