- A clip of this episode was uploaded to Cartoon Network's social media accounts on September 22, 2016 despite it not airing that night.
- The fourth wall breaks when Clayton asked Alan who is he talking to.
- This is Alan's fifth major role. The others four were "The Photo," "The Storm," "The Saint" and "The Traitor."
- This is the thirteenth time we see Gumball naked.
- The tech support number shown in "The Bet" reappears on the bulletin board when Gumball and Darwin see the grade taxes flyer.
- In the scene where all students riot, Gumball makes a face that resembles Nicole's in "The Pizza."
- A lot of selected faces for Alan's dictator-like face are shown:
- Alan's new voice is reminiscent of Frank Underwood from House of Cards.
- The "Vote for Alan" posters bear a resemblance to President Barack Obama's "Hope" posters used during his 2008 presidential campaign.
- Gumball's self-destructing message is a reference to the 1966 TV Series Mission: Impossible, where secret government agents receive instructions on a tape which self-destructs as smoke rises from it.
- Alan's propaganda poster to boycott Hector looks similar to the "Destroy This Mad Brute" poster used by the U.S. Army during World War 1.
- In Alan's movement on forcibly sending sad people to happy camps, Carrie floats by, looking rather depressed, with a thought bubble filled with squiggly lines, similar to the thought bubbles from the Peanuts comic strips by Charles M. Schulz.
