Added DiffLines:

* RefugeInAudacity: Like everything Nathan creates, his plan to lower tariffs on smoke detectors by labeling it as instrument, using it as an instrument, and creating a fake commercial to convince the band to throw a protest and get the song on the news are all ridiculous and morally questionable plans that end up working, to some extent.


* PopRock: "Orphaned Skies" is a rather generic pop song, except for one unique instrument.

* EverythingIsAnInstrument: The band's main gimmick is its use of a smoke detector as an instrument.
* FakeBand: Nathan Fielder formed this band only for the show to prove that smoke detectors can be musical instruments.
* GreenAesop: "Orphaned Skies" has a vaguely environmental message.
* TheManBehindTheMan: The band, its music, and its use of a smoke detector were all set up by Nathan. Additionally, he created a fake Shell Oil commercial containing the song to convince its members that Shell stole it, leading to them throwing a protest that was covered on the news, allowing the song to gain even more publicity.
* WordSaladTitle: The band's name doesn't have any real meaning and is just two random words.
