[edit] Easter Eggs

"Dislike Smoke"
  • Decompiling the Flash file reveals a hidden message upon trying to remove the silhouettes. This teaser's message reads "dislike smoke".

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • This is the only teaser to have the text above the characters instead of under them.

[edit] Remarks

  • The characters are in an order different from the one they have been in all previous trailers.

[edit] Goofs

  • The Loading text can be highlighted.

[edit] Inside References

  • As per usual, Strong Bad's costume is over-the-top.
  • Homestar Runner compliments others' costumes in song throughout the teaser.
  • The hidden message "Dislike smoke" is a reference to Dodongo from The Legend of Zelda (see Real-World References below); Hence it is also a reference to the chair, in which decompiling the Flash file to try to view the supposed picture of Strong Bad's parents instead reveals the message "nice try dodongo!".

[edit] Real-World References

  • Strong Bad's costume, and the entire teaser visual, is a reference to the Graboids in the movie Tremors.
    • In the previous teasers, the moon is in the top-right corner. In this teaser, however, to more closely match the movie poster for Tremors, it is larger and behind the characters.
  • The hidden message "dislike smoke" references the original The Legend of Zelda game, when an old man tells the player that "DODONGO DISLIKES SMOKE."
