I'm pretty sure that conglomerate is a rock. A sedimentary rock, at that. I have no idea what TBC would be referencing though... --[[User:Chiron|Chiron]] 23:11, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Expen$e Account Ones Easter Egg

I respectfully disagree with the assertion that this Easter Egg is a reference to the "Real American Heroes" Bud Light Campaign. The voice-over for this spot was, in my opinion, a pretty good Ted Koppel impersonation. I think the idea was just to have this spot sound more stuffy and business-like, but, if others agree, mentioning the Ted Koppel impersonation may be worth it.

I wouldn't say Ted Koppel is the source of the voice, but the structure and tone of the commercial is a reference to either the Bud Light campaign or Miller commercials. I'm willing to accept that the community will feel it's TTATOT, but it's clear to me that the voice is clearly an attempt at mimicking a particular voice. wbwolf (t | ed) 19:13, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
I also don't think its a reference to the Real American Heroes. The voice didnt match at all
It sounded to me more like the Miller High Life commercials voice where they talk about "living the high life" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Lb28iZKHJc (example)

The Field

i've never seen that style of trees in the field before. is it new? Zatchman 18:54, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Looks like. They're all the time tweaking those bushes. --DorianGray 18:58, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Take off wedding rings

This is not a reference to Strongbad's boxing glove hands at all, but the tendency of some male business people on the road to remove their wedding rings to hide the fact that they are married to other women they might meet. I moved this to explanations and removed the inside reference. A mention of vaugly hand related things doen't make a reference. --Foolster41 19:25, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

"You - You've earned it."

Is this a reference to the scene in Ghostbusters where Venkman gives the candy bar to Egon? Just a coincidence?

Oh, wow. Why didn't I recognise that? o_o --DorianGray 20:55, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Conglomerate...

I'm pretty sure that conglomerate is a rock. A sedimentary rock, at that. I have no idea what TBC would be referencing though... --Chiron 23:11, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
