    I lol'd when Robin Sparkle's records went 'Maple' and 'Double Maple'.

    Nice.

    Funny, on the stage they have a sign that reads "Consider questioning authority, please". Those darn Canadians are so nice!

    BTW, didn't we learn from Let's All Go To The Mall that all videos made in Canada had to feature the Canadian Prime Minister? It was Brian Mulroney back when she did her first video. Or am I mis-remembering?

    He was in it... but I don't know if it was mentioned why he was in it (or had to be); I know that it's a line in the song.

    LOL. I noticed the sign, but the joke went totally over my head when watching it. *blush*

    I liked it. I thought it was cute, and I enjoyed the guest stars.

    I had no idea about the Alanis/Coulier angle. That makes the episode even more perfect than I thought. Almost Community-worthy!

    I also had no idea that Alanis was on "You can't do that on television"; a show that I loved and still wish was around so my kids would enjoy it. I do love TCF :up:

    Before there were Internet Forums, there was USENET used for discussion (it still exists, but not for discussion anymore). The thread speculating about Alanis "You Oughta Know" went through many months and thousands of messages.

    I think you're missing the point, I barely know who Alanis is and I am 100% sure I would not recognize her even after she introduced herself to me. So the whole meta joke about her was totally lost on me, regardless of any discussion that had happened about her.

    The "Community" I mentioned was the show, not discussion groups. It seemed like the kind of joke they would make.

    Was this the first time the Robin/Alanis connection was made or was that obvious to others before?

    I did enjoy the various Canadian references thrown in. (Having Barney sitting in a Tim Hortons.) I found myself explaining to my wife many of the Canadian references. And I have been to Guelph on business!

    I think so. At least to me. Beforehand I had viewed Robin Sparkles as as more of a Canadian Debbie Gibson/Tiffany.

    Was Coulier the guy Alanis was singing about in You Ought to Know?

    From what I understand, there's been no official reveal to date, but the most popular theory is that it's Coulier.

    I was a big YCDTOT fan as well. I don't remember Alanis being on the show, but I guess she wasn't on it very long.

    You can find some clips from the show on Youtube. I went out looking for some a couple years ago. Great seeing that old stuff again. Remember the cook Barf? "What do you think's in the burger??" :)

    But I'd say there's been more than for "You're So Vain".

    Well, Carly did officially tell one person, right? The one who won the auction? :)

    Alanis will not say who the song is about, but Coulier has copped to it.
