The Andy Samberg movie Hot Rod was released ten years ago this week. That seems like just yesterday, but the guys from The Lonely Island made their first feature film in 2007. Let’s learn some trivia about the movie.
10. The stuntman trying to jump over the bus actually broke his leg.
Gotta give it to stuntmen and women, they take a horrendous beating sometimes for their job. The kind of things they go through on a regular basis can risk life and limb for just a brief moment on camera that a lot of times they won’t ever be known for.
9. The band called “Gown” is actually Queens of the Stone Age.
It’s kind of interesting why they wouldn’t use their real name, but in a film I suppose it doesn’t matter. They were awesome as always. Sometimes the director just wants to keep the fantasy without bringing too much of the real world into the picture.
