Sam Gibara, the Chairman of Goodyear, would only agree to be interviewed in the Waldorf Astoria. As the film-makers were very keen to have him on film, they rented a room at the Waldorf. Unfortunately the Waldorf only rents its rooms for the night, so 3 crew members took the opportunity to overnight in one of the world's most famous hotels.
One of the "subplots" that didn't make the final cut was about a children's festival where the Canadian singer/ children's entertainer Raffi was due to give a concert. Upon entering the festival, parents were greeted by a mocked-up KIA car showroom that would inevitably get the children excited as they were allowed to play in the cars, whilst being given KIA merchandise. The presence of this corporate employment of children pester power to be directed at their parents so disgusted Raffi that he pulled out of the concert. One of the reasons this segment was not included was that the film-makers were denied the opportunity to film the KIA showroom, and the handheld footage that they shot secretly wasn't good enough to be used in the final film.
Mikela J. Mikael was called in to lay down a temp track for the narration. Despite repeated efforts, the film-makers were unable to come up with anyone better for the real narrative track, so they stuck with Mikael's.
