Behind the Scenes

It is shown in a Behind The Scenes clip from Episode 4 that the machine used for filming was a rented Dance Dance Revolution arcade game, which the creators said costed a few grand to rent.


  • The game's name is a reference to the term, 'deus ex machina,' which is an unexpected power or event that saves a hopeless situation, used mainly in ancient Greek plays.
    • The term's definition could foreshadow or reference to Brian D managing to convince Calhoun to let him participate in the varsity tryouts in Episode 9, despite being expelled.
  • In Episode 4, right before the title screen it shows the FBI logo and it says "Winners Don't Use Drugs" below. This is a reference to the NES run'n'gun game Narc, in which Brian D robo-trips out of his mind.
  • The logos for Dance Ex Machina are designed by Rob Tokarz
