- This song first appeared on Factory Showroom in 1996 as a secret track that could be accessed by rewinding the CD for a minute before the first track. From tmbg.com, "This is actually a hidden track on one of our albums, but I'm not going to tell you how or where it is hidden."
- The song description on Radio TMBG said this song was supposed to evoke a low-key nightmare.
- From the Summer 1999 Info Club newsletter: "Another Dial-A-Song favorite finally makes it to the public. Drumming by Yuval Gabay of Soul Coughing."
- This song's narrative bears a superficial resemblance to that of the song "Charlie on the M.T.A." by the Kingston Trio, a popular protest song from the 1940s about a poor man who became trapped on the subway because he was unable to afford a rate hike to get off.
