Behind the scenesEdit

The death from Pop Rocks and Nuka-Cola is a reference to the urban myth that eating Pop Rocks and drinking cola will cause enough carbonation to make a kid's stomach explode. In a popular version of the myth, the character "Little Mikey" (played by [still living] actor John Gilchrist) of an iconic "Life" cereal commercial is said to have died this way.
