  • In 0:05, "interview" is misspelled as "inverview"
  • Near the end of the video, the text "Thanks for being a good sport, Dwayne" briefly changes to "Thanks for being a good sport, The Rock". Also, the photo of The Rock in the '90s briefly flashes before the text "And for not killing us!". A smiley emoji also appears for a half-second.
  • In the interview, Ian was dressed like The Rock in the '90s (picture here)
  • This video was released the same day that the movie Hercules was released
  • In the Brokeback Mountain joke, Dwayne was probably joking that Ian was gay
  • Anne Hathaway, Dwayne's co-star from the movie "Get Smart", starred in "Brokeback Mountain"

Shut Up! Opening

When you were a kid, you were known as... "The Pebble"?
