* [[AbsenteeActor Absentee Musician]]: Pontius ''and'' Cubbie on "Pumped Up Kicks." [[IAmTheBand Foster recorded the whole thing by himself]] with the intention of it being just a demo.
** They also don't appear on "The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones" ([[ACappella for obvious]] [[SelfBackingVocalist reasons]]), [[CreditsGag but the liner notes credit them with drums and bass respectively]]. Even more strangely, Foster is credited with guitar, vibraphone, and celesta, of all things.



* [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Real Life Writes the Song]]: "Pumped Up Kicks". One of Cubbie Fink's cousins survived {{Columbine}}. Foster himself was bullied in high school.

* SpitOutAShoe: Happens a few times in "Best Friend" after the woman starts eating the other supermodels. First she spits out some jewelry out into a sink, later she coughs up a high heeled shoe, then finally an ''entire dress.''
