[edit] Transcript

{Open to a static-filled screen, eventually focusing on Strong Bad in his room.}

STRONG BAD: Attention, Long Island! Do not attempt to adjust the jumbotron. And, do not attempt to adjust those trucker caps you're all wearing. Or wait, in fact, DO adjust them.

{Strong Bad holds up a blue trucker hat that reads "Naked Ladies" on the front.}

STRONG BAD: Everybody turn your trucker caps sidewise!

{He throws the hat off screen.}

STRONG BAD: Okay! Since they wouldn't let me on stage, and {winking} since the ladies demanded it, I give you, for two years running, the number one JAM OF THE SUMMER!

{The camera stops rolling.}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • This toon was made for the Field Day concert at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey held on June 7, 2003 [1]. The concert featured bands such as Radiohead and the Beastie Boys, with Strong Bad toons shown between bands. Everybody to the Limit was also played with this short as an added introduction [2].
  • Strong Bad alludes to the venue as Long Island because the original location was set to be in Calverton, New York. The venue changed to Giants Stadium at the last minute for various reasons [3], [4].
  • This toon was never officially featured on the site. It was first discovered after the Quote of the Week for May 24, 2007, was released, which had the filename "sb_fieldday.mp3".

[edit] Trivia

  • When viewing the Flash file, the toon repeats itself after it finishes.
  • There is no navbar on the bottom of the screen.

[edit] Real-World References

  • A JumboTron (also spelled jumbotron) is a large video screen made by Sony usually used in sports and entertainment venues and events. However, the word jumbotron (sans capitalization) can be used to refer to any sort of video screen similar to the aforementioned Sony screen.
  • The "Do not attempt to adjust..." line, along with the opening static effects, are from the intro to The Outer Limits.
