Simon Pegg Tortures Twitter Followers (VIDEO)

Simon Pegg, writer and star of "Shaun of the Dead", "Hot Fuzz", "Paul" and "Spaced" (which we're currently watching over at the HuffPost Comedy Club), stopped by Conan this week to talk about the Blu-ray and DVD release of "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol".

While he had him there, Conan couldn't resist the urge to ask Pegg about how he likes to occasionally torture his Twitter followers, and the comedian and actor happily obliged with a couple of anecdotes.

Just goes to show, occasionally following your favorite actors on Twitter is an adventure in and of itself. If you're gullible and/or believe in ghosts, that is.

And on a side note, if you haven't voted for the "Shaun of the Dead" Lego collection yet, you should really go and do that right now.
