  • "Mach 5," a parody of glamorous Performance Videos.

    • Then their performance of "Lump" at the Virgin Megastore for the launch of II:
      So they tell me everybody down on the floor bought the CD to get down on the floor. Thank you very much for buying the CD! Give yourselves a big round of applause! (strums guitar during applause) Shame on you people up there!
