This episode is about being a cog in the corporate machine. It sets the tone for a reoccurring theme in Pizza Bros, which is upper management wanting to do something but not giving the front line employees the tools to do their job properly.
Steve going from having an 8 bit pixel art hat to 8 bit pixel art hair was quite the difficult challenge to draw. Sometimes when your drawing, you are sitting there thinking “what does hair even look like!?” and how do I translate that into pixel art?
