This show had a Spinal Tap theme: Jake was Nigel Tufnel, Brendan was David St. Hubbins, Ryan was Derek Smalls, and Joel was Viv Savage; Andy and Mike were both 80s glam hair rockers. Big Bottom was played as the “true” Spinal Tap song - with three basses (Brendan played a “Britney Spears” bass) and spankings.
