[edit] Explanations

[edit] Trivia

[edit] Remarks

  • This toon used to only be found in the New Stuff menu, but not in any other page of the TV Time Toons Menu; it can now be found in the category Shorts.
  • The computer shown is a Dell of the same design as one that came out in 2000. The Pentium III was only in production from 1999 to 2003.

[edit] Inside References

[edit] Real-World References

  • The music video is in the fashion of Pop-Up Video, a VH1 series that played music videos with "info nuggets" that would pop up periodically to share trivia or jokes.
  • Larry's guitar in the opening segment is from the Guitar Hero series of games.
    • The guitar controller is for the Wii version; a Wii console can be seen on the counter. At the time, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock was the only game in the series released for the Wii.
    • The Guitar Hero controller features five different colored fret buttons, with harder difficulty settings requiring the use of progressively more buttons. The orange button is not used on Easy or Medium difficulty.
    • The first song in Guitar Hero III, which Larry purportedly cannot beat even on Easy, is "Slow Ride" by Foghat.
  • Crush's top hat is a reference to the musician Slash (best known as lead guitarist of Guns N' Roses) and his trademark top hat.
    • Slash is also a feature character in Guitar Hero III.
