- Video created by I Think We're Still Thinking, which is comprised of William Shum (who previously directed the music video for "Madam, I Challenge You To A Duel" and "Unpronounceable") and Momoe Narazaki.
- The ape on the second chorus's "one, two, three, five" as well as the one in the hospital bed are taken (through rotoscoping) from One Got Fat, a 1963 bicycle safety film featuring children wearing monkey masks.
- While this song didn't make any of the 2015 Dial-A-Song albums, Flansburgh stated that "there will be a very big box. But it's going to take some time." It would later appear on the 2018 release More Murdered Remains.
