Ah, how urban legends get started? Not really, but I have the video where 
Peter and Mike go at it with an air saw.  To say "chicken head" here, (me) ducked 
behind the fender of a nearby car where Paul continued to protect the beer 
nuts is how I remember it.

Witty comments like "Nice knowing ya" and "waiting for the boom"...were 
tossed over the fender................. thankfully, the car guys defeated the Audi 
gods, while I had a good laugh.
