Trying to spot all the references to Al's previous work. So far, here's what I've seen.

Poster for "UHF" - in bedroom during "Never gotta wear your sister's old clothes" line
Banner for "Straight Outta Lynwood" - on side of bus
Cover of "Alapalooza" on back of register
"White and Nerdy" referenced - on crane during "Top Ramen" scene
"My Bologna" referenced - bologna flavored seasoning during the "Top Ramen" scene
Channel 62 (from UHF) - icon on the wall during in the beginning of the video in the scene of Al dressed like a pimp. This is easily the most obscure reference I've seen so far.

Possible References (not sure if they're intentionally referencing Al's work or not):

"Bob" writte on box - during the "You can watch whatever you like" line.
Fatbagel - Name of the bagel shop - possibly a reference to "Fat"

Has anybody seen any others that I missed?

I thought it was great, though I think the wife/girlfriend was smiling too much. I feel she should have had a disapointed expression on her face. I liked the references to Alapalooza and Straight Outta Lynnwood.

The Kostgo card says that Weird A. Yankovic is in the Super Cubic Zirconia ... Club. With Cubic Zirconia being a reference to Confessions.

I don't get the reference to Ernest Borgnine. How is that an Al reference? Also the cubic zirconia isnt really an Al reference, i dont think. Its a parody of "gold club" type memberships. Good eye on those other ones, though!

I know of a couple of 27s and album references that haven't been spotted yet but I'll never tell.

What other album references did you see? I just watched again and spotted a little accordion in the top right of the screen during the video game driving segment.
