Can I just say that I really like the little subtle Fox reference in the middle of the song? “Modern show with modern music, Smoke machine and laser light,” and then the little clip showing green smoke and lasers?

Are they POSSIBLY mocking their own song? Hmmm

Sorry, but I still don't quite understand what you think they are parodying in Mr. Toot. Would you care to explain it further to me? Much appreciated!

Well, it’s just an opinion still until we hear their own interpretation, but I think they’re parodying artists who drastically change their styles and personas to suit what they believe to be popular taste when their original style was what made them well-known in the first place.

Yes, really. It’s the most prominent in this gifset. I feel like it might’ve even been intentional?
