UHF Easter Egg - 27

As with all things AL, UHF contains a good number of references to the number 27.

1) On the video cover box art, there are 27 white and purple lines making up the static on the TV behind the UHF logo.

2) There are 27 characters that make up the title Stanley Spadowski's Clubhouse.

I have confirmed the above myself. The following are awaiting confirmation, but have been reported on more than one occasion.

3) The word "Spatula" is said 27 times in the ad for "Spatula City"

4) "UHF" is sung 27 times at the end of the title song to the movie.

I don't really think that "Stanley Spadowski's Clubhouse" was intended to have 27 characters. Weird Al says in the commentary that it's a reference to something else. It's purely coincidental, which makes it an even better 27 appearance.

It's been a while since I've seen the movie, but I have the soundtrack and the Spatula City ad is on it. I counted only 19 usages of the word "Spatula." I believe that the version on the soundtrack is verbatim to the movie, but I could be wrong.

Whys does UHF use 27 as a reference is it like 1138 for Lucas-films and A113

In the film version of the Spatula City commercial, there are only twenty uses of the word "spatula" (the soundtrack version omits the first usage, thus, leaving nineteen), so the ever-so-loved twenty-seven egg was not applied here.

What were you smoking the day you sat and figured this out? ;) Seriously, it's pretty cool...I guess...but you need some new hobbies.
