*Skulls (e.g. the Tentacle Skull seen riding the bicycle) are another [[TMBW:Skulls|frequent TMBG theme]]. In addition to being mentioned in several of their songs, it appears on the cover of their ''[[TMBW:Back To Skull|Back to Skull]]'' EP and  on the back of their ''[[TMBW:John Henry|John Henry]]'' album.  The skull might also be the [[TMBW:Skullivan|Skullivan]], as mentioned in the companion EP for ''The Spine'', ''[[TMBW:The Spine Surfs Alone (EP)|The Spine Surfs Alone]]''.

*[[TMBW:Coffee|Coffee]] is yet another common theme in the work of TMBG. The earliest videos and promotional matierials from the '80s show TMBG with cups of coffee. In the film ''[[TMBW:Gigantic|Gigantic]]'', TMBG confesses that they are insanely dependent on coffee.

*In the commentary, both Strong Bad and Homestar get TMBG's name totally wrong (both "Super Giants" and "Supreme Giants" are mentioned). This is, of course, [[TMBW:Monikers|not the first time this has happened]]. In fact, one of their early EPs included [[TMBW:Untitled|an answering machine message]] in which two people discuss "There Must Be Giants" and "There May Be Giants" and appear to be confused about the whole experience. Similarly, they are introduced as "They Must Be Giants" on their live album ''[[TMBW:Severe Tire Damage|Severe Tire Damage]]''.

*The finger that comes up at one point might be a reference to the thumb on the cover of TMBG's [[TMBW:Dial-A-Song - 20 Years Of They Might Be Giants|"Dial-a-Song" album]], or perhaps the close-up of a cartoon finger pressing an elevator button in the video for "[[TMBW:(She Was A) Hotel Detective|(She Was a) Hotel Detective]]".

*This is not the first time TMBG have worked with Flash accompaniment. Their children's album, "No!" (2002), was an enhanced CD, with 13 of the 17 songs having Flash animation complementing the music.
