Trivia

The second fake newscast mentions the fall of the Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in October 1978, three months before Joe's supposed awakening from his coma in January 1979. Amin did fall from power in 1979, though a few months later than "predicted." He was overthrown on April 11, 1979 when Tanzania invaded Uganda. See more »
