American Pie: Band Camp picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene when the Sherminator is talking with Matt after returning from band camp, Matt is wearing a purple shirt. But when Matt asks if "everyone hated his brother", in the reflection of the star trophy on the desk, you can see Matt's reflection, and he is wearing the orange and black striped shirt from the earlier scene where the Sherminator sends him to band camp. Clearly the two scenes were cut together. (01:21:50)
