The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day pays tribute by taking a look at the Ebert-inspired Eborsisk from Willow!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Picture.

I figured an apt nod to Ebert here would be taking a look at the awesome Eborsisk from Willow. The name is derived from combining Siskel and Ebert, which is as good a name as any for this two-headed monster.

Before getting all offended, apparently the “faces” of the Eborsisk were more a nod to Ron Howard’s brother, Clint, not a sly jab at the attractiveness of the critics.

To be mocked or parodied is the height of flattery as the saying goes, so there is no better way to give visual proof of Ebert’s influence than to showcase the Eborsisk! This is a repost from last year, but these are special circumstances. Hope you enjoy the picture.

Tomorrow’s pic’s hands are dirty, too. What are you afraid of?
