References, Notes & TriviaEdit

  • Brendon's character in The Old Man is a reference to James Dean in Giant and East of Eden. However his costume resembles Dean's outfit in Rebel Without A Cause.
  • During Fat Club, a few images including a hot dog and Jason dressed as Tyler Durden appear for a single frame.
    • This is a reference to Tyler Durden in Fight Club, who splices inappropriate images into the movie he projects for a single frame, a stylistic technique also used in the film itself.
