- This is the first LoadingReadyRun video to have any kind of content warning at the start of the video.
- Matching up with his statement that "I'm is not in this video" Alex is uncredited.
- In the video's blog entry on the LRR website Matt noted that they were shooting the video in a public park, "and the public part of that park kept trying get itself in the way, or to walk very young children within earshot". The crew made sure to warn parents to take their children to other areas of the park during filming.
- A peacock can be seen walking in and out of frame in the background of the first scene. Peacocks are "kept" at Beacon Hill Park's petting zoo, but roam freely throughout.
- The stinger features a callback to It's Very Simple.
- After the stinger Graham, Kathleen and Jaz Masters of the "Cookie Brigade" appear to announce LRR's panel and video screening on Saturday of PAX East '11 as well as the Cookie Brigade's selling of cookies to benefit Child's Play.
