Trivia

  • Because the video was made right after MGS4 Boss Auditions, the Snake action figure is probably a reference to that video.
    • If the Snake figure is a deliberate reference, Sick Day is the fifth consecutive LRR comedy sketch to allude to its immediate predecessor with a line or prop (An Interview with Uwe Boll is not technically comedy). The streak began with Son of a Bitch's Cardboard Man comic.
  • In the third message, the music that can be heard in the background is the backing track from 1337, last heard in Pimp My Chair.
    • In the fourth message, the music is Killahbyte's backing track, also from Pimp My Chair and heard more recently as the background party music in Black Box.
  • The alien's name is the phrase "you have no life" played backwards.
    • This may be a reference to the S3 Red Dwarf episode Backwards.
    • This is more likely a reference to the fact that one who takes the time to reverse the clip and hear the original audio has no life.
  • This is the first appearance of Spot the Dog since his inception in Jangles and Jones Save Christmas.
