After getting pulled over by the stoned motorcycle cop, the scenes repeatedly switch back and forth between Chong in the driver's seat to Cheech in the back of the truck with the girls where there is only a curtain separating them. But from the back, the view beyond the curtain should be that of bright daylight but is instead total darkness indicating the back of the truck is a set.
