  • John Linnell spoke about the song in a July 2010 interview for the podcast Iain Lee's Best Bits:
It's a speculative song. It's actually the one example in our work of a song that uses that full throttle Auto-Tune thing which has become so popular since then, I must say.
  • The video for this song was created by Aaron Sorenson and Courtney Booker, and they were assisted by the studio Laika/House. Sorenson handled the character animation and design, while Booker created the backgrounds and textures.[1] It earned both an Annie Award nomination for Best Animated Television Commercial (despite the video not being a commercial),[2] and the Judges' Award at The Northwest Film & Video Festival in Portland, Oregon in 2005, and a competition spot at the Annecy International Film Festival in 2011.
