On season three of “What We Do in the Shadows,” several hilarious references to “Twilight” are made – including a kickball scene that’s a clear nod to the movie’s famous baseball game.
Following a bombshell revelation about Nandor’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Gail in the season’s third episode (“Gail”), the rest of the vampires decide to accompany him to meet up with the local werewolf pack, with whom they have a notorious rivalry.
After some bickering, Nandor’s human familiar Guillermo suggests that the vampires and werewolves should “resolve” their differences “‘Twilight’ style,” and encourages them to play each other in kickball.
Then, in a hilarious nod to the baseball scene in “Twilight,” the two groups duke it out on the kickball field as Muse’s “Supermassive Black Hole” plays (the same song used in the “Twilight” scene.)
It’s an unexpected but funny callback to one of the vampire genre’s most famous movies. Stars Harvey Guillén, who plays Guillermo, and Kayvan Novak, who plays Nandor, told Insider in an interview ahead of the season premiere that both their characters are fans of “Twilight.”
“I think Guillermo was Team Edward. I think he has to be, right?” Guillén said. “That’s his aspirational living situation there.”
“We’re really kind of going in deep with ‘Twilight’ [this season],” he added.
As for Nandor, Novak pointed out that the Turkish vampire was “clearly a ‘Twilight’ fan” from the pilot, in which he asks Guillermo to get him some glitter so that he can look like Edward Cullen sparkling in the sun.
But Novak also joked that Stewart’s 2012 affair with “Snow White” director Rupert Sanders (and subsequent split from Robert Pattinson) might have ruined the movies for Nandor.
“That kind of thing, that would have really upset him,” Novak told Insider.
Season three of “What We Do in the Shadows” is currently streaming on Hulu. You can watch the trailer below.
