Trivia

  • The 'real' Feature Story in the context of the video is about China banning WoW yet again. When Jer is meant to deliver the story, though, he says merely that 'Nobody cares, Graham', and passes it back to the studio. Paul then gives the Economic Weather Report, which stands in as the real Feature Story.
