[edit] Remarks

  • If the song is listened to in stereo, the "dooj" sound is "panned", or slowly goes from one speaker to the other.

[edit] Real-World References

  • Strong Bad yelling "FOOTBALL!" at the end of the song is likely a reference to a techno song by "The Fans" entitled Olé Olé Olé / The Name of the Game. In the track, a voice chants "the name of the game" and a soccer crowd responds "FOOTBALL!".
  • Dance Revolution is a possible reference to the game Dance Dance Revolution.
