** To the credit of the film, much of the backgrounds in the show (besides the constant testicular assault) could be faked for presentation sake. ** Or it ''was'' a replica (say like the one in Las Vegas, or an even cheaper local variant) and people are just too dumb to tell the difference.

* ClusterFBomb: An apparent byproduct of the society's intellectual devolution is that "vulgarity filters" have largely been done away with. In other words, people cuss and use vulgar words all the time.

* ToiletHumor: In-universe, about the only acceptable (and comprehensible) form of humour left in 2500s America.

A comedy by Creator/MikeJudge, starring Luke Wilson as Joe Bowers, a [[TheEveryman totally average]] soldier who is volunteered for a suspended animation experiment, along with a hooker named Rita (played by Creator/MayaRudolph), who refers to herself as a painter and refers to her pimp, Upgrayedd, as her "boyfriend/manager". The experiment is supposed to run for only a year, but they wind up forgotten for five hundred years. When they finally emerge, they discover that due to 500 years of the dumb outbreeding the intelligent and world culture gradually dumbing down to the LowestCommonDenominator, society has become very crude and very dumb. Joe and Rita are now by far the smartest people around, and the world's looking at them to solve some very serious problems.
