Fridge: Jesus Christ Superstar
  • Fridge Brilliance:
    • In the 2000 version, by the end of the movie, Judas's shirt is pretty torn up. Kinda confusing until you remember that the tearing of clothing is a Jewish mourning ritual.
      • Not only that, but it is a humiliation ritual too. Note how in the Bible, the High Priest/Pilate rips Jesus' clothes after he condemns him.
    • These lyrics in "Trial Before Pilate". The crowd unintentionally tells Pilate the only way he can "help" Jesus to fulfil his mission:
    Pilate: You're a fool, Jesus Christ!
    How can I help you?
    Crowd: Crucify him! Crucify him!
