The advert at the beginning is for diet pills, which is a reference to the 'Sippy Cup' line: "Pill diet, pill diet, if they give you a new pill then you will buy it / If they say to kill yourself, then you will try it".


12) And then there's the milk and cookies she eating too.


13) The choice of wig in the 'Mrs. Potato Head' might not be accident either.



Might it, in fact, be a nod to the character in the Pacify Her video? WE. THINK. SO.
