1. The floating turd in the opening scene? Silva laid that.
2. A naked, tripping Gaby Hoffmann is covered in a Mr. Met t-shirt. In reality, it's Silva's favorite tee.
Silva bought this shirt from a vintage shop in his home country of Chile. He had no idea that it had anything to do with the New York Mets baseball team; Mr. Met, for all his charm, is apparently not an internationally-recognized figure.
Also: Silva's friend borrowed the shirt a while ago, and he'd like it back, thank you very much.
