Songs: Crush My Battle Opponent's Balls (Skwisgaar solo)
Jon Schnepp himself has a cameo as the director of Skwisgaar's video shoot. Additionally, the music video for "Crush My Battle Opponent's Balls" lists the video director as being King Robot, which is his alias. He ends up getting his cranium sliced off when the dragon puppet malfunctions.
The manner in which Skwisgaar plays guitar with his middle finger extended is similar to that of Kirk Hammett from Metallica.

Yngwie J. Malmsteen
The opening scene, where Skwisgaar is shooting down a dragon with flames from his guitar, may be a reference to the cover of guitar legend Yngwie J. Malmsteen's Trilogy album, which depicts him on the cover battling a dragon in this manner.
Skwisgaar's outfit has a striking similarity to the one worn by Nergal, the lead singer for the Polish blackened death metal band Behemoth.
Skwisgaar's corpse paint is done in the same style as the face paint worn by Maniac, the former singer for legendary Norwegian black metal band Mayhem.
