Cultural References

The music video for the "Jacket" single is loaded with pop culture references.

3rd Bass

Aerosmith

  • Dermott's microphone stand has a colorful scarf tied to it, a hallmark of the rock band Aerosmith.

Bananarama

Bauhaus

  • The main concept of the song of repeating different types of "jackets" bears a striking similarity to English rock band Bauhaus' song "Scopes", the B-side to their single "Terror Couple Killed Colonel" (later released on the 1988 CD reissue of their album In the Flat Field), in which lead vocalist Peter Murphy lists different types of "scopes" (microscope, telescope, periscope, etc.), and the rest of the band calls back "Scopes!"

Billy Joel

  • The scene where Dr. Venture and Sergeant Hatred sit at the kitchen table with fire in the background is a reference to Billy Joel's 1989 music video for "We Didn't Start The Fire".

Bob Dylan

Creed

  • The scenes of Dermott standing atop a cliff with his arms spread are a reference to Creed's 2002 music video for their single "One Last Breath".

Devil's plaid

  • The lyrics to the song Jacket reference devil's plaid, a pattern of plaid sometimes used as a jacket liner.

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Joy Division

  • The brief scene of Dermott and Hank carrying a picture of H.E.L.P.eR. (and another with a photo of Brock Samson) is a reference to Joy Division's music video for "Atmosphere", wherein people in various white and black robes are seen carrying a large picture of Ian Curtis, the deceased frontman of Joy Division. It is also comical to note that H.E.L.P.eR. was briefly dead (and Brock was "missing" for a significant amount of time.) 

KISS

Patton (1970)

  • The scene of Dermott and Hank wearing Eisenhower jackets in front of a giant American flag is a reference to the 1970 film Patton.

Pearl Jam

  • The scenes of Shallow Gravy running through the woods intercut with words written in chalk on a blackboard are references to the 1992 Pearl Jam music video for their song "Jeremy".
