Another Random thought: Intertextuality

Remember The Matrix?

Remember this pistachio commercial by Lewis Black?  (Shown here at extreme low quality because I can't find a good one):

In The Matrix, Morpheus wears a black coat and a pistachio green tie when inside the matrix.  I can't look at him without feeling like I'm seeing a pistachio commercial.  Even though the commercial postdates The Matrix.  By a lot.

And that, my friends, is intertextuality at work.
