• It is said that the small engraved mirrors in the area where the song was shot, would sparkle under the cameras intense lights and made it impossible to shoot. Even consultants from Hollywood told Director to give up on the idea provided the impossible task of shooting against such intense glare. He thought of an idea: all those small mirrors, roughly in thousands, would be covered in a very thin covering of wax, so that they did not reflect any light and still you can see as clean as it can be without any blur.

ID the phrase• No, no, no, no. You gotta listen to the way people talk. You dont say "affirmative," or some shit like that. You say "no problemo." And if someone comes on to you with an attitude you say "eat me." And if you want to shine them on its “X"

If you wanted a duel you used a stick. You couldnt go and buy one; thats where the terms X came from. Whenever we played a game where we had a grocery store or something we called it the X. Why? Because in the yellow pages if you looked, say, under drugstores, youd find the first one would be X Drugs. Why? Because "AC" was about as high as you could go; it means the best; the superlative.
