* ExecutiveMeddling: {{Parodied}} in Still Waiting music video. At the start, their record label executive (portrayed by Will Sasso) renames the band and its individual members, stating that "number bands are out" and ""the" is in". It also parodies the executives' (supposed) lack of knowledge about music and musicians with Sasso saying, that although he has "not heard the new album, it's probably all sorts of songs about skateboarding and [[BreakupSong getting dumped]]" and stating band names like [[Music/GreenDay Green Day 75]] or [[Music/LedZeppelin The Led Zeppelins]].

* ThrowItIn: During the making of music video for Pieces, Derryck walks across various trucks that spot slogans such as "The perfect family", "The perfect body" or "The perfect night". At the end of the video, he himself is in one such truck that reads "The perfect life is wating for you". Then the F in life falls off, changing the line to "The perfect lie is wating for you". While this was an accident, they decided to leave it there, as they thought if fit the mood of the song.
