Kidman recently revealed that she would like to parody the advertisement as well, but with a drag queen, after many performers shared their takes on social media.

“My dream will be to be onstage doing it with a drag queen,” she said in an interview with Elle. “I’ve got to be able to do that at some point.”

The advertisement starring Kidman played before the feature films at AMC theaters and quickly went viral. Kidman said it was her love of cinema what inspired her to take part in the campaign.

“It was just the desire to keep cinemas alive,” she said. “I’ve had the best experiences in cinema. I’d pretend I was going to school; I’d forge a note, and I’d go and sit in a movie theater. That’s a safe haven for me, so the idea of those not existing—that’s just not part of the equation in my lifetime.”

Of becoming a meme and being mocked by SNL and comedians, she said, “If that’s what it takes, I’ll do whatever it takes. We have to have some more ideas for the next one.”

During the AFI Life Achievement celebration, Morgan also paid tribute to Kidman by singing Moulin Rouge and calling the 2001 film his favorite.
