Evidently, the actual Stacy — her identify was correctly saved unrevealed — gave a gun rack to Myers as a joke; she was not the “psycho hose beast” as depicted in “Wayne’s World.” Marin, being a Toronto native, additionally acknowledged a number of native references that Myers snuck into his script. Whereas “Wayne’s World” takes place in Aurora, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, quite a lot of the language and iconography was straight out of Canada. 

In “Wayne’s World,” as an example, Wayne, Garth, and all their buddies congregate at a heavy metallic bar referred to as The Gasworks. Evidently, this was an actual biker/metallic bar in Marin and Myers’ neighborhood. Sadly, evidently the actual Gasworks shuttered its doorways again in 1993. Moreover, Wayne and Garth are seen frequenting the large-scale (fictional) donut store Stan Mikita’s Donuts. Stan Mikita was a Canadian hockey participant for the Chicago Blackhawks. His donut store was a transparent reference to the Canadian donut chain Tim Hortons, based by the celebrated hockey participant who performed for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Horton additionally performed for a number of American groups, however American hockey groups do not depend. 

Marin additionally factors out that the majority of Myers’ comedic works have private Canadian references subtly embedded within them. “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me,” he observed, had a refined music cue to the Canadian sport present “Definition” which ran from 1974 to 1989. Its theme was written by Quincy Jones. It additionally appears that Myers’ Dieter character from the Sprockets sketches on “Saturday Evening Dwell” was primarily based on a German waiter at a diner on Queen Avenue in Toronto, a waiter that Marin had additionally encountered.

A deep dive could reveal much more Torontonian particulars, and locals will doubtless be capable to spot all of them.
