Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back Easter Egg - The Film That Never Was
There are many in-jokes and eggs in this film as the writer/director Kevin Smith refers to loads of his other films (or films he was involved with) but probably the really obscure reference that nobody I know has picked up on is one of the movie posters glimpsed as everyone is leaving the cinema at the end of the film. Its a poster for a film called 'Busing', and while most people notice the poster design looks very similar to the poster of Smith's first movie 'Clerks', the egg goes deeper than that.
'Busing' is actually a script Smith wrote following the success of 'Clerks', and was basically described as 'Clerks in a restaurant' but Smith abandoned it since the studio he pitched it to, the now-gone Hollywood Pictures, didn't like it. The similarity to 'Clerks' explains the parody poster design, but most people don't know that it was once going to be a movie.
