When we first see the band take off in the Mr. Chippy van, we see them go around a corner and off into the distance. The sign on the building at the corner is Bo Dollerns pub. Next, we have the flatulence scene in the van, then we're on the sidewalk as the van stops and the window is thrown open. What building do you see over the shoulder of "rock salmon" man?
