Trivia:

– The products “highlighted” in this episode are:
Comic Aun (Lala Poplip Pipiruno Pipiru Paparemmo) (http://www.imageanime.com/coaunlpopipi.html $105.00 online; made by SoftCore)
Horny Ladies and the News (

, $23.98 online; Distributed by Kitty Media)

Highlighted is used in quotations because while these highlights are mostly just a gag, they do foreshadow the fact that we will be doing segments devoted to H-products which will be handled somewhat out of main plot continuity.
– The gag with the camera falling down was inspired by a blown take wherein the camera DID slip back on the tripod, resulting in hilarity. Because the overall take wasn’t that good and key seconds of footage to sell the shot were lost, it had to be redone, albeit with artificial movement.
– The end gag with Kyon singing over the credits is derived from the source of the episode’s title, originally suggested by Jenni, as “(Kyun!Kyun!) Watashi no Kare wa Piloto” is the popular Minmay song from “Super Dimensional Fortress Macross”…which returns in “Macross Frontier,” as show that Jenni and Mario are very much fans of. Originally Haruhi was supposed to sing the song then blackmail Kyon into singing, but scheduling difficulties made it necessary to do it this way.
– Thus far, this will be the only episode of the series that will not feature opening titles and proper end credit music.
– Debuted at the 2009 New York Anime Festival Variety Show, which Mario was hosting/headlining, and which Jenni also performed in.
