    I think this episodes is one of the ones that make you know Dan Harmon is not replaceable for this show. It was ridiculous and awesome at the same time.

    Dan Harmon just did a Ask Me Anything (AMA) on reddit. Here's his side of the story:

    I guess Tracy Flick is Reese Witherspoon's character in "Election".. (imdb search). Wow, I saw that movie, but that's a pretty obscure reference.

    Why wouldn't Chevy film that tag? I thought it he walked off because it was something that made him look really stupid or bad, but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with that.

    It's not that obscure for film buffs or people in the business (like Dan Harmon). "Election" is widely considered to be a very good film and appears on all kinds of "top" lists.

    I don't get it either.

    I also thought that he refused because they were going to dump a pile of manure on him or something like that where he'd look really ridiculous or a scene where his character does something rather vile.

    If Harmon is accurate here, I see no reason why Chase wouldn't do it.
    I thought it made his character look good.

    Top lists *ever* or *that year/decade* or what?

    I mean, I know it was popular.. but it's no Star Wars!

    I've seen it on lots of "top" lists. I thought the movie was terrible and I love Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick.

    Note that the episode did not win an emmy for "Individual Achievement in Animation" the way "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" did last season. (This isn't too surprising, as the award usually goes to stop-motion or CGI work, or somebody who draws especially impressive backgrounds.)
