In the early scene where Baby is walking down the block with coffee in hand for the crew, we hear "Harlem Shuffle," but also see visual cues lined up with the sound. There's a similar scene where "Tequila" is playing. How did that work?
Slater: Yeah, there's a lot going on. I think that's kind of true for all of Edgar's movies. I can only speak for my portion of what we did, the sound part. We did it in such a way that it was something subtle sometimes as much as it was overt. As a viewer, you can watch that movie five, six, seven, eight, nine times and you can still pick out new things.
Next time you watch it, just look at that coffee run again. When he walks into that coffee shop, he walks past two workmen who are carrying a ladder. Who are walking in time to the music. Who are listening to a rap song on their radio that is in sync to the music. As he goes into the coffee shop, there is a guy on headphones sending a text message. He is listening to a music track that is in sync. He’s texting, and the send sound is in sync. When he opens up the door, the coffee shop bell is happening in sync. Let alone that he walks and he goes to speak to the barista, takes out his earbud, and the music goes over to the left-hand side of the cinema. All the coffee sounds that are happening in the background, like the coffee grinds and the banging of the grinder to get the grind out, they're all happening in sync.
