Wayne's World

Wayne's World

-Wayne lives at home in a rural Chicago neighborhood. He has a wide collection of nametags from his various jobs. He runs his own public access TV show in the basement of his house called Wayne's World, which he does with his best friend, Garth. When a local TV station decides to try and get Wayne and Garth to do their show professionally, they couldn't be happier. After a while, they discover, to their horror, it does not have the same appeal as it once did. Also, Wayne falls for a bass guitarist named Cassandra, and the sleazy TV exec, Ben Oliver, is trying to steal her away

Did You Know?
-Was shot in 34 days
-The donut shop, Stan Makita's Donuts, was a fictional donut shop, named after a player on the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team. The scenes for the donut shop were filmed at Tim Horton's, which is a real donut shop chain
-The pictures of Wayne and Garth hanging in Garth's room are from the Saturday Night Live sketches
-To explain the "No Stairway to Heaven" sign the clerk points to when Wayne starts playing, alot of British music shops in the 1970s banned or fined patrons for playing it because it played so often and also, it was the most widely played song by Led Zeppelin back then
-During the Bohemian Rhapsody scene, both Mike Myers and Dana Carvey got severe neck pain from the head banging
-During the Bohemian Rhapsody scene, Dana Carvey did not learn the lyrics to the song. When everyone is singing the song, word for word, you can see Carvey lip synching because he does not know the words
-During the "Terminator 2" parody scene, the song Time Machine by Black Sabbath can be heard playing in the background. It was from an album titled Dehumanizer, which featured a Terminator Endoskeleton dressed as the Grim Reaper
-When Wayne is comparing the albums Crucial Taunt to Double Live Gonzo!, Intensities in Ten Cities and Live at Budokan, for those who listen to these artists, you'll know that the first two are Ted Nugent and the third is a live Cheap Trick album
-Dana Strum from the hair metal band Slaughter is repeatedly mistaken for the long haired guitar store clerk in the "No Stairway" scene

Dana Strum: Slaughter
