Suggested correction: Nothing indicates in the film that sumos are necessarily naked under their layer.

Continuity mistake: Whenever Goldmember undresses. it causes a gold glow to light up the surrounding area. Later on in the movie when he reveals the 'second key', it stops producing this effect.

Suggested correction: We still see the glow as he's getting the key.

I believe he's referring to the fact that once removed, the key is no longer glowing, even though the film indicated it glowed.
