When Elwood Blues, Mighty Mack McTeer and Buster Blues sneaks into the Monster Truck Stadium to perform, the police stop their car to look inside. When it shows the police point of view, Buster is in the back of the car and Mighty Mack McTeer is in the driver seat. In the next take, Buster is suddenly in the passenger seat.
After "Please, Please, Please" there is an advertisement for Universal Studios Florida. Under the logo reads "Ride the Movies" which fades out to read "(Ask for Babs)" as in The Blues Brothers (1980) and Landis's Animal House.
