Quentin Tarantino’s Hilarious and Bizarre Punishment for Sleeping on Set

Quentin Tarantino’s Hilarious and Bizarre Punishment for Sleeping on Set

Quentin Tarantino’s Unusual On-Set Rule

It seems that anyone working with Quentin Tarantino should take his ‘no sleeping on set’ rule extremely seriously. There’s a good reason for this, too. You can call it a harmless prank or label it as unnecessarily crude, but it’s undeniably amusing if you look at it from a certain perspective – specifically, the viewpoint of someone who’s never experienced it. One of Tarantino’s most important rules on his set, and one that carries significant weight due to the consequences of breaking it, is that you must not fall asleep. Most bosses don’t want you dozing off on the job anyway; it’s a bad habit and poor work practice, regardless of your profession. In some jobs, it could even be a fatal mistake.

However, on Quentin’s set, you don’t fall asleep because there’s allegedly a very peculiar punishment that comes with it. Have you ever been to a party where the first person to pass out is the one who gets drawn on and messed with the most? This is somewhat similar, but with a more lasting impact. If you fall asleep, you might one day find your picture on Tarantino’s wall of shame with a large, translucent sex toy pressed against your face. Even worse would be if you were drooling in your sleep or had your mouth wide open, as you can only imagine how someone might want to caption that. That is the punishment for falling asleep on Tarantino’s set, and it’s one that his actors diligently try to avoid.

Escalating Consequences for Rule Breakers

Wouldn’t you?

The worst part is that if you attempt to remove your picture from the wall of shame, it reportedly gets put back up in a larger size. If you take it down again, you might find the crew wearing t-shirts featuring your picture with the absurdly large and wiggly appendage. If you haven’t figured out what I’m talking about yet, try to picture a big, wiggly, translucent sex toy and let your imagination run wild. Yikes, I just shuddered at the thought.

Some people might get upset about it and either threaten to sue or even claim that the act caused them some form of mental trauma. However, as distasteful as it sounds, it’s not illegal. It might be in poor taste, but it’s still funny and an effective way to keep people on their toes. Now, if the crew were actively hitting people with the wiggly phallus, that would be an entirely different story. But they’re making a point that sleeping on the job is not acceptable… they’ve just found a way to do it that’s less than civil.

A Twisted Sense of Humor

There are many things you can say about Quentin Tarantino when it comes to how he runs his set and his movies, but one thing you should agree on is that he does have a sense of humor. Yes, it might be a little twisted, but it’s definitely there.
