Today, we look at the Only Murders in the Building opening title Easter Egg for the fourth episode of Season 2.
In Pop Culture Easter Eggs, I share with you pop culture “easter eggs.” An easter egg is a joke/visual gag/homage/in-joke that is hidden in works that you are meant to find (just like an easter egg). They range from the not-so-obscure to the really obscure. So come check ’em all out and enjoy!
The excellent Hulu TV series, Only Murders in the Building, created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman and starring Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, has a brilliant opening title sequence that include Easter Eggs hinting as to the plot of the episode in question.
Season 2 is currently airing, so I’ll share the easter egg for each episode after it airs.
Obviously, SPOILERS AHEAD!

The easter egg for this one are the pair of flip flops hanging from a tree outside of the Arconia at the start of the credits…
This is a reference to the song, “Angel in Flip-Flops,” that Charles is singing with his ex-girlfriend’s daughter, Lucy, early in the episode that it turns out was a surprise one-hit wonder for Charles that is huge in Germany (it was off of his album that parodied the way that celebrities from TV shows back in the day always seemed to release albums, like, Richard Chamberlain Sings or David Soul).
