Trivia: Black Dynamite
open/close all folders
- Awesome, Dear Boy: Arsenio Hall agreed to a cameo when he saw the script had a character called "Captain Kangaroo Pimp."
- Hey, It's That Guy!: A plethora, including Cedric Yarbrough as Chocolate Giddy-Up and Nicole Sullivan (from the original cast of MADtv) as Pat Nixon.
- Throw It In: Deliberately parodying the tendency of Blaxploitation films to do this. An example includes a Mook whose car door gets stuck on a curb, and later another Mook forgets to put the brakes on his car while getting out to shoot. In the DVD extras, they explain that the latter was an actual error, not an intentional "error". Naturally, they kept it in.
