The beat to musical segment 3, "You're the Bot That I Want" comes from "Grease's" "You're the One That I Want".
The tune to musical segment 2, "Bring Me to Life: The Birth of Electric Girl", pays homage to "This is Halloween" from Tim Burton / Henry Selick's classic "The Nightmare Before Christmas" - Harrison Wall's favourite childhood film. Note that both films also started out as poems.
Andy McDandy's appearance is loosely based on Napolean Dynamite.
Listen carefully and you will hear Jessica listening to musical segment "You're the Bot That I Want", from Harrison Wall's short film "CyberBeat", on her iPhone.
The laborartory scene is an unsubtle parody of the creation of Frankenstein.
"CyberBeat" is a High School musical but arguably more realistic than "High School Musical".
