Frank Booth: What kind of beer do you like?
Jeffrey Beaumont: Heineken.
Frank Booth: [shouting] Heineken? F* that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!

Formed in the Spring of 2004, Secret Pants is Philadelphia’s oldest continuously active sketch comedy troupe. They recently shot this splendid homage to David Lynch disguised as a commercial for Pabst Blue Ribbon, or rather Pabst Blue Velvet.

  1. Well, there’s Audrey’s famous cherry stem trick, Marietta Fortune’s smeared lipstick, Nadine, the famous ear of course, and Dean Stockwell lipsynching in the background. Also I believe the girl with the cherry is supposed to look like Naomi Watts character from Mulholland Drive. So there’s six…it’s been a while since I’ve watched anything. I’ll have to correct that soon.

  2. Cherry tying = Audrey ties a cherry stem in a knot with her tongue (Twin Peaks).

    Eyepatch = Nadine Hurley (Twin Peaks)

    Leather Jacket guy = Frank Booth (Blue Velvet)

    A guy in a black suit = FBI Agent (Twin Peaks)

    Lipstick running over the edge = Wild At Heart (Plus the old lady is wearing the blonde wig)

    A sour face with eyes blinking = Lil the Dancer (Twin Peaks : Fire Walk With Me)

    Throwing up the beer = Throwing up expresso (Lost Highway)

    Singer in the background = Ben from Blue Velvet

    Severed Ear = Blue Velvet

    And of course PBR = Blue Velvet.
