Glottis goes crazy

I think i've found an easter egg while browsing through GF files in search of glottis singing the Bone Wagon song.
To see it, download Lighthouse save game from gf.net, take the jacket from Lupe, and show the note from the pocket to Glottis downstairs

It's great that LA developers didn't go about boasting about each secret they've put in the game and let the players discover things like this... they must have put some work in creating this easter egg, and most of the time players don't even have a chance to see this little masterpiece as they rush further to the tattoo maker Which is a pity, cause it enchances the mood greatly.

Hmm, I've never tried doing that before, did you already know about it, or did you stumble upon it by chance? I must try it

I just tried it for the first time. I never really felt the need before because I used to listen to the song at Tim Fandango. Also, someone at deviantart has done a great animation to go with the song.

I found it by accident, made me download some ol' blues ballads and waste a night listening to them Perhaps you could add it to "hidden things" at gf.net.

VampireNaomi, could you post the link to that anim?

EDIT
Nevermind, found it here.

Hey, nice find. I'd heard the song before but never ingame. I added it to the easter eggs section of the Department of Death

A little OT, but I just read the pick-up lines at the DOD. When you try to pick up Lupe, Manny says "Not my employees" or something. If you try to pick up the beatniks at The Blue Casket, he says "It's not that kind of bar". With Chowchilla Charlie, you get "I could possibly do it, and toss him pretty far, too". Our Manny is so funny.

Thanks for those . Did you remember them from the last time you played or did you just discover them now?

Just now. The ones you already had at the site inspired me to fool around a little. Does anyone know if Manny says something like that about Domino? I don't have a save game in a suitable spot to check it. What about Eva?

Also, does Manny often go "Nah" when you try to pick up something? That's what I get for Raoul, but I wasn't sure if it was specific, or if he says that about something else as well.

If you try to pick up Domino at the start of the game Manny says: No piggy back rides today!

its wierd that it wasnt the bone wagon song but it was RUSTY ANCHOR. Witch is wierd why Glottis knew that

It is even wierder that this song comes into accordence in year 3 when glottis surivives on the SS. Lamancha and it was hanging on the edge of the world only by its Rusty anchor

What about after Glottiss runs off? Has anybody ever "used" the piano. Manny sings "oooh, ooooooooh, Meche"

It's really sweet, and kinda sad.
