Today, we look at the Only Murders in the Building opening title Easter Egg for the finale of Season 3, “Opening Night.”
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 3 is currently airing, so I’ll share the easter egg for each episode after it airs.
Obviously, SPOILERS AHEAD!
This is a simple, but really cute one. It’s opening night for Death Rattle Dazzle: The Musical, and so when we go to each of the three stars’ windows in the building, they are curtained off and then the curtains open, and the actors’ names appear (the bit is slower for Martin, but pretty quick for Short and Gomez, to the point where I couldn’t even really get a good screen capture of Short’s curtains closed.
Very clever stuff.
