My god, you're totally right. that is totally setting up for something like that I'd bet.
I saw the viral video thing, that's pretty amusing that Lynch found him like that, but I guess being discovered and cast in something is the kind of thing people like that kid are hoping for when they put a video like that on youtube.
Reminds me of several episodes ago when one of the music cues in the soundtrack is literally one of the first things that comes up when you type in "hip hop beat" (or something similar to that) on youtube. Lynch clearly didn't feel like digging too deep on that one.
You know you've got a hell of an episode when footage of David Bowie is the last thing anybody is talking about. (I know it's archival footage, but still).
