The 40 Year Old Virgin

Revealing mistake: When Andy flies through the billboard from his bicycle, there is no driver in the truck the advertisement was on. You can see through the side window and mirror that no one is in the truck.

Revealing mistake: When Andy hits the pothole, - watch where the bike lands. It's almost immediately next to him. Andy pops up and says he's fine - the bike is nowhere near where it first landed.

Continuity mistake: When Andy and Trish are in bed for the first time, Trish removes her black top and throws it to the floor. In the next shot it reappears back on the bedcovers, then back on the floor again. (01:10:10)

Trivia: For Andy to get rid of the Teen Wolf look, actor Steve Carell's chest hair is really waxed by an actress, who is a non-professional waxer. Because there would only be one take of this disturbingly amusing scene, they set up five cameras - one on his 'friends', one over Andy, one on the waxer, one for wide shots, and one for close-ups of his chest. This scene was not scripted, so when the waxer laughs and Andy's friends are totally cracking up it was for real. Though it was strongly suggested to Steve to first trim his chest hair or to take a pain reliever before the taping, he refused, wanting to have the full cringe-effect caught on tape. In one close-up a bit of blood is actually seen bleeding up to the surface - it is not CGI. It took about seven weeks for his hair to grow back, much to chagrin of his wife, who wasn't crazy about his 'chest smiley'.

Question: What's the deal with the song Paula sings to Andy in the scene at the store. I have a feeling there's something comical behind it. Does anyone know what she's singing?

Chosen answer: The words translated are "When you clean my room, I can't find anything. Where are you going in a hurry? The football game." Even if you can't understand a foreign language, the last word of the love song is recognizably "football".
