Trivia: The surrounding palm trees at the F.A.G. building, and the back round trees in Cairo are actually made of cut up one dollar bills. Also, in Kim Jong Il's mansion, hanging on the lights and chandeliers there are rocket bombs and grenades. The belt buckles of the Team are U.S. quarters and Gary has a set of nail clippers on his left leg. The surrounding poor suburbs of North Korea are made of Chinese food boxes. In Cairo, the lanterns in the tavern are made from cheese graters, vegetable steamers, and incense burners. The walkways in the Paris scene are made out of cast crescents as well as having all the recognizable monuments of Paris residing in one single plaza.
Trivia: During the song "Ronery," when Kim Jong il is on the balcony, the metal statue (of Kim Il-sung) in the foreground can be seen blinking and slightly swaying, revealing that it is actually a man in very heavy makeup. It is very possible that this may be the only live human in the entire film.
