‘Dave’ Season 1 featured Lil Dicky defecating in the woods
In the last episode of Dave Season 1 Dave and Ally (Taylor Misiak) are out hiking. As only an FXX series can, the episode features a panicked Dave openly defecating in a pond.
While the scene was meant to be hilarious, something unfortunate happened behind the scenes. “We had a machine that took so long to attach to my body,” Burd told Deadline. “As soon as we started filming, there was someone pushing a lever. The first time we did it, the hose malfunctioned and diarrhea burst into the air.
The machine’s malfunction was not the only problem. As Dave Co-creator Jeff Schaffer explained that the droppings “didn’t look like Dave’s.” With this understanding, Schaffer said they were able to “massage him and get him to a place where [they] were happy. “

Like season 1, season 2 of Dave presented unique challenges behind the scenes. This was the case when Burd incorporated his favorite meal into a scene.
“’Company Chicken’ is Dave’s favorite meal in real life,” Schaffer tells Collider. “Dave loves ‘corporate chicken’ so much, the crew got his mom’s recipe and made [it]. ”
Knowing it would be a long shoot (he called it a “six hour scene”), Schaffer encouraged Burd to calm down while eating on set. “We were in between takes and he was enjoying ‘Company Chicken’,” Schaffer says.

“The best part of the story is that I’m literally wearing my pants,” Burd intervenes. “I actually got pooped. I had to tell the wardrobe that I needed a new pair of underwear because I ate myself to the point of pooping. Fortunately, fans weren’t any more savvy while watching the episode.

But now that the season is over, Burd says he’s focusing on something else fans have been eagerly awaiting: a new album.
