Given [[The Brothers Chaps|the Brothers Chaps']] obsession with old video games, RyGuy might be a reference to the classic NES game Rygar, or Ryu from the Street Fighter series. It could also reference [http://www.callofcombat.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4158 Fryguy], given their equal obsession with 80s youth-targeted advertising.

Call me crazy, but the whole interview seems to be exactly like an interview that David Byrne did with himself while he was with Talking Heads.  The interview is available on the best of Talking Heads DVD, and is halarious.  In it, The Byrne being interviewed wears different costumes, prompting the Byrne conducting the interview to ask about it.  It is probably the real inside joke here, rather than the Sinefeld reference, which may have actually been a homage to the Byrne interview also!

== Admiral Strong Bad ==
 
-

Recently, an anonny edited the transcript of this email, changing all instances of "'''CAPTAIN STRONG BAD'''" to "'''ADMIRAL STRONG BAD'''". I reverted it, as to my knowledge, we have not had a consensus about this. So which is he? I think the anonny was making a good edit, as we have never heard him called Captain Strong Bad, so Admiral is probably a better description. He is wearing a sailor's cap, after all. But using that logic, we could say that no one has ever referred to him as "Admiral" either, and that it's better to just call him Strong Bad. What do you think? {{User:Has Matt?/sig}} 02:09, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

:Strong Bad specifically claims that Cpt. Strong Bad is dressed up as "a ship's captain". I think this is pretty clear-cut. {{User:Phlip/sig}} 02:10, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

::As do I.  {{User:Theyellowdart/sig}}

:::Ohh, now I understand. Next time I'll look more into the transcript when I'm deciding about something like this. I'ma go watch Idol. {{User:Has Matt?/sig}} 02:14, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

== Interview Style ==
 
-
 
-
I think the over the shoulder shots is a clear reference to how live action tv shows often utilize the same actor for different roles. The effect of having the same person onscreen twice was expensive, so they used stand-ins and shots of the back of one person's head looking at the other to minimize the cost of the effect. I know that was done on probably every popular sitcom at least once... and was most notable on [[Wikipedia:The Patty Duke Show|The Patty Duke Show]].

::This is also explained on [[Wikipedia:Dual Role|Dual_role]]. Maybe we can expand this article and the [[twin_characters]] page to include these references?

== Running Gag "Introduced" ==
 
-
 
-
The fact where Strong Bad, near the end of the [[pizzaz|email]], says pizzas instead of "pizazz"[sic] should basically have it's own running gag. Do you find my statement about the runnin gag consent/contrary? -{{User:Umlaut76/sig}}

== Plugs ==
 
-
 
-
I noticed while watching this email that on the outlets viewed while The Cheat is unplugging the plug, the left hole is flipped. Most outlets in the States either have no perpendicular part on the left hole, or a perpendicular part to the left of the parallel part. is this worth mentioning? and i'm a little fuzzy on the reasons why said perpendicular part exists; i think it's to accommodate for European plugs, but i think even those vary depending on what part of Europe you're in. In short, is the reversed outlet hole worth a mention? {{User:The Knights Who Say Ni/sig}} 21:46, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

== Buffalo Bill ==

-
In the early 80's, there was a sitcom about a daytime news talk show called Buffalo Bill.  Here's a link:
 
-
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084992/
 
-
 
-
I think it is entirely possible that "Buffalo-style" may be a reference to this TV show.

:"Buffalo style" usually refers to buffalo wings. {{User:ACupOfCoffee/sig}} 04:28, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

::Usually, yes, but here, it definitely refers to the talk show.  As noted above, it could be a reference to Meet The Press, but considering the Buffalo Bill synopsis (that, and being the show was produced in the 80's - and we all know how much TBC love the 80's), I think it is entirely possible it could be a reference to this show.  In fact, this show was exactly what came to mind the first time I saw this video, and was somewhat surprised that no one had mentioned this before.
