"Absurd decisions typify the Aqua Teen creators...So when looking for big names to lend a voice to their show, they asked not for an animation veteran but instead for the drummer for Rush. 'We get lots of offers over the transom, of course – lots of things that someone would like us to be involved in, or to buy from them,' says Peart, clearly in a lighthearted mood. But when it came to this movie, 'Somebody in the office had an open mind....he's a watermelon seed who plays the drums, and he gets to perform a supernatural ritual called the Drum Solo of Life...My solo (in Rush shows) is nine minutes long, so I just gave them a bunch of 30-second clips to choose from that sounded spiritual.'" - Toronto Star, Apr. 15, 2007
