{Cut to the four Gregs.}

OPEN SOURCE GREG: Based on past experiences, I believe I am the aforementioned plump kid from that song!

{Cut to an image of Brainkrieg's drummer. He has a decomposing pumpkin splattered onto his head and shoulder.}

BRAINKRIEG DRUMMER: Sadly, you are not.

{The garage door closes with a crash, the screen dims, and "the end." appears in the middle of the screen.}

Easter Eggs

  • Clicking on the period after "the end" brings up a scene where Brainkreig end their show.
BRAINKRIEG: Thank you very much! We are BRAINKRIEG! Next up is my mom getting back from book club! {speaking more calmly} So we all need to get out of the way so she can pull in. That tennis ball tells her how far to pull up. So she doesn't hit the trash cans again.

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • Cheerleader's shirt says (s)hallow (t)ween.

Remarks

  • In Brainkrieg's first appearance, death metal, they are presented as a death metal band while in this toon they are more hard rock/punk.
  • As they did in their previous video, Brainkrieg mentions Christmas lights instead of Decemberween lights.

Goofs

  • When the bassist looks at Cheerleader during the pause in the song, the wings on the design of his T-shirt suddenly disappear.
  • When the toon zooms in on the house in the beginning, the paper background stays static.

Inside References

  • One of the pumpkins has Abraham Lincoln's silhouette on it.
  • Eggs feature prominently in this toon.
  • The decomposing pumpkin was previously seen in Pumpkin Carve-nival.
  • Cheerleader's excitement to be at the Brainkrieg concert is based on an Easter egg from death metal.
