Spot the obscure Westerberg reference

By 13.Jan.088 Comments

Stop rubbing your eyes. It’s only Sunday, but yes that is a video down there. As most of you know I am a big big fan of The Daily Mole, specifically Dude Weather. I watch Dude Weather first thing in the morning, before I have even rubbed the sleep from my eyes.

Recently, I was chastised for missing an obscure reference in this clip. Can you spot it?


I am the queen of the underground, a bad ungrateful bunny.

    Sounds like the beginning of Trumpet Clip right off the bat.

    My favorite Westerberg reference was in an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Some guy bursts threw a window in a plaid shirt and scruffy hair with a gun, and the little robot says, “And here comes Paul Westerberg to the rescue.”

  • Dutch says:

    Actually, there are two nods to PW in this clip.
    I’ll give you the first – the count-off at the begining is ripped off of “Wild As I Wanna Be (Replacement version)”

    If anybody catches the ref, I want my secret decorder ring and keys to clubhouse back!

  • jay says:

    Does Paul’s scream count as part of that count off?

  • jay says:

    And damn i thought thatt count off was trumpet clip! Color me dumb.

    Fuuuuck. Garton are you on the staff of Dude Weather?
