I can’t decide what’s funnier: the fact that Dulux actually have a red paint colour called “Redrum,” or that an oblivious Kathleen wanted to use it on their apartment walls! (Sidenote: Andrew’s anecdote reminded me of when Milhouse picked up Bart’s telepathic message “kcip pu trab” in The Simpsons, which in turn led me to this nifty page detailing all the Stanley Kubrick references on the show.)

  1. This seems to be untrue – search the Dulux website or type ‘dulux paint “red rum”‘ into Google and see if you agree.

  2. I don’t get what’s untrue. The name is actually “red rum”, but I think the Shining reference is still obvious…
