Shrek fans 'traumatized' after spotting questionable moment in Lord Farquaad scene

A discreet adult-oriented joke in Shrek, likely unnoticed during childhood viewings, has recently stirred up social media as fans express their disbelief, claiming that their cherished memories from childhood are now tarnished.
In childhood, it's common for many elements in movies to be overlooked or not fully understood.

Shrek, considered one of the most beloved animated films, is replete with subtle jokes strategically inserted for the amusement of parents.

A specific scene featuring the film's antagonist, Lord Farquaad, has ignited a viral reaction among social media users, particularly on TikTok.

TikTok user @kathy_martinez05’s viral video pointing out this very NSFW joke has begun circulating on social media again.

The clip, that has been viewed more than 2.2 million times since being posted in 2021, shows the Shrek scene that shocked viewers.

In the scene Lord Farquaad asks his fairytale mirror to show him a picture of his soon-to-be bride, Princess Fiona.

After an initial sigh, the mirror shows Fiona leaning outside her dragon-guarded castle.
But if you’re looking closely at Lord Farquaad’s sheets, you’ll see a small bump appear, causing the character to blush and cover himself up.

“If this is real, no longer my favorite movie,” one TikTok user joked.

“I hate that they added that detail,” another added.

Others joked DreamWorks would be hearing from their therapist, while another stating they had now been scarred for life.

Reddit users have also discussed this exact scene and once you know it is there, it is admittedly... very hard not to notice.

The Reddit thread discussing this exact scene was called: “What NSFW in TV/film/music went completely over your head when you were young?”

Millions of kids watching the flick wouldn’t have even noticed the joke, let alone understood it.

In response, one user mentioned ‘Literally every gag in Shrek, particularly relating to Lord Farquaad, or rather ‘Lord F**k-wad,’ as another person alluded.
“The fact that his name is a joke is something that I didn't pick up on until I was in my twenties (despite having watched this film plenty of times as a teenager). I guess it's just because ‘F**k-wad’ isn't a phrase I'd ever heard anyone use,” they recalled.

This story gets even better when you know that the villain was reportedly inspired by Michael Eisner, the then–CEO of The Walt Disney Company, because Jeffrey Katzenberg's, the producer of the film, wasn’t exactly fond of his former employer.
