Connection to the BBVerse
When in Florida during Halloween Horror Nights in 2010, Patrick Delahanty told Brian Brushwood, "You know, NSFW is essentially iCarly for adults." Brian tweeted this out saying, "And sadly, I had no counterargument."
The comparison was also mentioned in Whoa Mute Shannon. Justin responded to these allegations by saying, "I'm gonna say, D as in dogfisting! Is that something they say on iCarly?" Brian replied, "That's a very special episode they have."
The opening video for The First Annual Creepass Halloween Special was the iCarly opening theme done using NSFW footage. Patrick Delahanty had hoped to complete it in time for the 150th episode, but ran out of time.
- The opening shot has tabs for Squarespace and Brian's Scam Stuff Indiegogo with bookmarks for NSFW, BBLiveShow, TWiT, Shwood.com, Chatrealm, 105.9 The Cat, and BBpedia.
- Brian putting on giant underpants was was recorded by Patrick at the SXSoWasted party at SXSW in 2012 and never previously appeared in an episode.
- Justin getting "axed" by Ryan Connolly was from Film Riot, but used as an opening video for NSFW...making it fair game for this video.
- The sky five, Andrew punching Brian, and Justin waving footage was recorded by Patrick at SXSW in 2011 and never previously appeared in an episode. (However, other SXSW 2011 video from Patrick was used for a Squarespace ad during Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun.)
- The final shot was from the after show of Pagan Babies.
