Reboot Easter Egg - I Don't Want My MTV
In the "Return Of The Crimson Binome" episode, Bob is taken to the Crimson Binome's pirate ship and pushed against a wall of the ship. If you look closely at this wall, you will see the phrase "I Want My MTV" "spray-painted" there. This is a reference to the Dire Straits' music video "Money For Nothing" which ReBoot creator Ian Pearson and ReBoot producer/sometime director Steve Barron worked on years before ReBoot was even thought of. Anyway, back to Pearson and Baroon, their reasoning behind this seemingly nonsensical phrase is that they hated the way the video came out and also being known as the "Money For Nothing" guys so much that they felt they had to really roast the video. Also in the "Talent Night" episode, there is another reference to the "Money For Nothing" video in which the two main characters from said video go onstage to perform and are pulled offstage as they are booed very loudly by all in attendance.
