Added DiffLines:

** The Busto 2.0 arc is interspersed with a couple of live-action short videos detailing Busto's escape into the real world and his subsequent torment of Nick and Griffin. One is titled 'entry 10.5', which is a shout-out to ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets''.

''Car Boys'' was a weekly web series from Polygon which followed [[Creator/McElroyBrothers Griffin McElroy]] (of ''WebVideo/MonsterFactory'' fame) and Nick Robinson (another Polygon employee) as they played/destroyed the game ''[[VideoGame/BeamNG BeamNG.drive]]''. Making use of the game's advanced soft-body physics, the two of them have many adventures with high-speed crashes, accompanied by the crash-test dummy [[CompanionCube Busto]]. The humor is similar in style to ''WebVideo/MonsterFactory'', but flavored with high-octane destruction.

The series has a SpiritualSuccessor in the Polygon series ''Let's Go To Hell''.

* GainaxEnding: "Nick and Griffin Reach The End" puts ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]'' to shame. [[spoiler:They discover a vortex under a lake, and drive a car into it. In the vortex they discover an infinite tunnel leading to the Sun Chips Place and the Life Force as Griffin describes it. Nick accidentally leads the Blob into it, and traps it there. Nick and Griffin are transformed into a pair of infinite beams, becoming Beam Nick and Griffon ([[TitleDrop BeamNG]] for short), and are sucked into the Time Ring, where they are destined to be [[SealedEvilInADuel chased by the Blob forever, keeping it away from the Life Force]].]]


Added DiffLines:

** Griffin mentions ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' a handful of times, whenever things start to get ''too'' Mindscrew-y and Eldritch. They even briefly use "Angel of Doom", from the Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion soundtrack.

* HopeSpot: In [[spoiler: "Nick and Griffin Search the Blob for Weaknesses"]], it almost appears like the OVO has vanquished the Blob for good, to the amazed cheers of Nick and Griffin.... only to find it lying in the middle of the infinite gridmap. Waiting for them.

Added DiffLines:

** In episode 7, Nick states that [[EldritchAbomination Busto 2.0's warped fingers]] would cause his eyes to bleed if he was wearing 3D glasses.
