In the song "It Feels So Good To Be Bad" sung by Red and Carface, about 40 seconds into the song (from the point Red starts to sing) Red throws Carface into a barber chair and begins to menace him with a straight razor, which is likely a reference to the fact that Red's voice was provided by George Hearn, who portrayed the murderous barber Sweeny Todd on Broadway. He won an Emmy for his portrayal of Sweeny Todd during a taped version of show that was aired on Showtime.
