Sneaky Jokes You Never Caught In Movies And Shows

Before home video, when you watched a movie once and then maybe again ten years later on TV, and there weren't a hundred TV channels showing reruns, producers didn't bother throwing in subtle jokes much at all. But now, if you watch a movie or TV show a few times, and can rewind when necessary, you'll find plenty of easter eggs put there for the amusement of the producers and the eventual treasure hunt for the viewer.



We don't even have to watch carefully, because someone else somewhere will, and let us know on the internet. See 28 such background jokes exposed at Cracked.

The 'Seyko' misspelling is almost certainly deliberate, to avoid the studio giving out free advertising. Product placement is a sizeable business in film; if you see a character in a film drinking a soft drink, and you can read 'Coca-Cola' or 'Pepsi' on the can/bottle, you can be certain that Coke or Pepsi paid to have their brand visible. When the production company needs to have a prop that would logically be a branded product, but the company that makes that product doesn't want to pay for the product placement (or the production company doesn't want to take the time to negotiate a placement), they'll create a prop that looks similar to the brand, but with enough differences to avoid trademark infringement. So 'Seiko' becomes 'Seyko'.
