Recently I had the luxury of re-watching some older movies that I hadn't thought about in a while. I came up with a few interesting connections and observations. I know that this will get a little in the weeds like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, but bare with me.
The last movie I watched was the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992). Do you get where I am going with this? Luke Wilson, Owen Wilson and Eliza Dushku were not in this movie, but it does link to The New Guy. There is a scene in BTVS the movie where the cheerleaders perform the cheer "How funky is your chicken? How funky is your chicken? How loose is your goose? Our goose is totally loose! So come on all you Hog fans, so come on all you Hog fans and shake your caboose, and shake your caboose!" This exact cheer is replicated by cheerleaders in The New Guy and is lead by Eliza Dushku. She previously played a cheerleader in Bring It On (2000).
If we want to delve even deeper into the crazy connections between BTVS the movie and Eliza Dushku you go for the obvious link. She played Faith Lehane on the BTVS show from 1998-2007. All in all this weekend proved mentally stimulating and although I'm not sure anyone is going to understand what I have just blogged.
