Boogie Nights Easter Egg - Stormtrooper Radio

I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, but when Don Cheadle's character is selling some guy a stereo; the stereo's model number is TK-421. This is the same number as the stormtrooper that Luke steals the uniform from in Star Wars: A New Hope. There were some other Star Wars references in the movie so I assume someone is a fan.

My take on this, it wasn’t an Easter egg at all: Don Cheadle's character is bull-sh*tting the guy and made that TK-421 reference up, pulling it from Star Wars, knowing the guy probably wouldn’t catch the reference. My point is the character knew it was a Star Wars pull, since it seems all the main chararters commented that they has seen and liked Star Wars...

No, Cheadle is definitely a scheister as a stereo salesman. He is clearly riffing when he says a model has "4 quads a channel." This is absolute nonsense and his character knows it.

"TK-421 why aren't you at your post?!?!?!" I caught that the first time I saw the movie...

Nah, Buck (Don Cheadle) was too nice to do that. Plus, when his boss confronts him, Buck seems really sincere about his job.

Personally, it scares the hell out of me that there's ANYONE out there that knows, much less remembers, the serial number of a stormtrooper from Star Wars. There's 'being a fan', and then there's 'being scary', and this one runs screaming over the line.

My boyfriend and I pick up on that one as well!! We often joke about TK-421 modifications (really fun to ask old guys at fleamarkets if the outdated hardware they are selling has a TK-421 modification) we picked up on the stormtrooper thing and laughed so hard we were crying!!
