[edit] Use by The Brothers Chaps

The Brothers Chaps have discussed their real-world parents' basement on occasion. Prior to February 2003, when they began working with a fulfillment company, distribution of Homestar Runner merchandise was done out of the Chapman parents' basement; the brothers have repeatedly emphasized that they never lived in said basement, as the running gag had led some fans to believe.
