You know that guy that looks kinda like Ted Kaczynski (the forensic sketch, not his real face)? The cardboard cut-out thing in the sketch with the guy making a prank call, asking for a 'shot of bruschotti' (I haven't seen it spelled out)? I saw it again in the promos for "The Watch", on the top of a shelf in Jonah Hill's character's bedroom (the scene where he's yelling at his mom to get out, and then immediately apologizes). Is that like, a thing or something?

I don't recall the particulars of that sketch, but the original call was made by Longmont Potion Castle, who have released at least 7 CDs if not more. Perhaps you will find this helpful.

Maybe Longmont Potion Castle, he/they did do a few videos where a friend of his would tape whoever he was currently prank calling.. it's been too long, I don't remember how it appeared on Off The Air. If the video was black and white and spy camera and the guy was in a store of some kind, that's probably what it is

I think I saw the video of the guy he called (at the coffee shop), but I didn't see the one that was put in Off The Air.

Oh, I see what you mean now.
That police sketch has always been semi-iconic for whatever reason. It could be the giant sunglasses.
Before Ted K. was caught, his 'Unabomber' cases were fairly famous.. exploding boards outside of computer repair shoppes, etc. Pretty weird stuff

The image is called "Unabomber Speckles" by R. Land, according to the credits. It's a combination of the Unabomber and R. Land's cat, "Speckles".
(it's based on that "Loss Cat" flyer, as seen in the Aqua Teen movie)

I hope it was an allusion to "Off the Air" because that means Jonah Hill and I share a common interest D
