Yet another Rush-themed van mural on FX's Archer
In what has become a recurring theme on FX's animated sitcom Archer, Krieger's van mural was updated with yet another Rush theme this past week. On the latest episode of the show (Season 4, Episode 2 - The Wind Cries Mary), the van's mural gets updated with a Fly By Night theme, showing the familiar album cover with the title as Van By Night and the owl's face replaced with an image of Krieger's face (screenshot here). This makes the 4th such reference to have occurred on the show. During the season 3 finale Space Race: Part 2 the van was given a Caress of Steel-themed mural with the lettering reading Caress of Krieger (screenshot here). On the finale of season 2 the van had an Exit ... Stage Left-inspired mural which read Exit ... Van Left (screenshot here), and earlier in season 3 the mural had been updated to a Rush Hemispheres theme (screenshot here). There was also a major Rush reference on episode 8 of season 3 last year. In that episode Kreiger is trying to learn YYZ on his Neil Peart-inspired drumkit. Thanks to deslock for the heads up and the screenshot.
