Jack Rabbit Slims in Reservoir Dogs!

I was just watching Reservoir Dogs and was wondering why the music stops on its own in the ear slicing scene. Then I listened closely and realized that the radio didn’t shut off but took a commercial break. If you listen closely I think one of the ads is for Jack Rabbit Slims. Listen during the shot that pans left to right from Orange to a dying Blonde. You hear a woman on the radio saying Jack Rabbit Slims several times. Its right after Orange shoots Blonde.

Thats cool. Ill have to listen for it.

I meant the shot that pans left from Orange with the gun to Blonde dying. Forget the “to right” in that sentence.

Cool… But pretty strange…

holy fuck i heard it, that is weird

I Listened for this… its unlikely that anyone seeing the film for the first time would notice but it actually pretty funny under the extreme circumstances…

i had known about it earlier but wasnt sure if it was for real or not, but i know now it is.

there is one in Pulp fiction as well though, when butch walks past a car with an open window

I have never noticed it on RD but on Pulp Fiction I did the first time. There are a lot of refrences in those movies I believe. Like they talk about somebody named Bonnie in RD.
