I’ll give you a hint: bzzzz.

Charlize Theron’s Furiosa truly came to be.

This clip, shared by Theron on Twitter, was shared in honour of a drive-in showing of Fury Road held Friday night in Los Angeles as part of a benefit for CTAOP, an organisation Theron founded to help protect young people in Africa from HIV. Drive-ins are pretty much the only way to watch movies outside of the house nowadays, and this seems like a particularly excellent event to have been a part of.

And the moment itself: it’s a good one. While her head-shaving technique isn’t ideal (generally, one wants to cut the hair short first to give the razer less trouble), it’s still a thrilling thing to see. This is when Furiosa’s look started to take shape, a look that would define one of the best films in the contemporary history of action movies.

We can only hope that whoever plays Furiosa in the prequel looks half as cool.
