The baseball bat, model rocket, fountain photographer, snowmobile and tree are real "accidents". The model rocket was staged. The music sucks.

It reminds you of the music from the restaurant scene in "Kill Bill" because it IS the music from the restaurant scene in "Kill Bill".
The girl group that played the music in the movie is the original artist. They're the 5,6,7,8s. The song is called "Woo Hoo".
The 5,6,7,8s were "discovered" by Quentin Tarantino during a visit to Japan to scout for his movie. They're a retro type group and it looks like they will get added to the list of "One Hit Wonders".
