In this episode there are frequent references to Burger King, including Carl Weathers saying he can get promotional consideration if he sets a scene at the restaurant. This was soon after an episode of "The Apprentice" featured the teams competing to market a new burger for Burger King, which some critics panned as essentially an hour long commercial for the restaurant. The original title of this episode was "The Tendercrisp Chicken Comedy Half-Hour", in reference to a Burger King menu item. The producers of Arrested Development really did receive product placement money for the Burger King mentions in this episode, though in true irreverent Arrested Development fashion, they undermined the advertising potential of the unsubtle mentions with some rather more subtle digs at the chain and the whole idea of product placement. Two examples of this undermining are: 1) when Barry "jumps the shark," it is simultaneous to his mention of Burger King - not a flattering juxtaposition, since "jumping the shark" stands for the moment when a TV show reaches its creative nadir; and 2) whenever a poster advertising the "Angus Burger" sandwich is visible in any scene, the letter "g" in the word "Angus" is partially or completely obscured, leaving a decidedly less appetizing name for the sandwich.
