Tarantino References: See Every Pop Culture Callout The Director Included In His Movies (VIDEO)

Long before Dan Harmon and Seth MacFarlane became famous for sprinkling random pop culture references in their work, Quentin Tarantino was regaling audiences on his meaning of Madonna's "Like a Virgin." The opening scene of "Reservoir Dogs" was not just the start of Tarantino's already lengthy career (20 years and counting), but also his onscreen infatuation with all things culture.

To celebrate the release of "Django Unchained," the good folks at College Humor have put together a video compiling all of Tarantino's pop culture callouts in chronological order. (That's good news for people who like "Inglourious Basterds," as it gets heavy play in the video's first 30 seconds.) With the exception of "Django," all of Tarantino's directorial outings get a moment in the sun, including "Death Proof" and his segment of "Four Rooms." Tarantino's scripts for "True Romance" (directed by Tony Scott) and "From Dusk Till Dawn" (directed by Robert Rodriguez) are also spotlighted. (Favorite "From Dusk Till Dawn" line: "I will turn this place into the f--king 'Wild Bunch.'")

Take the Pepsi challenge with the NSFW College Humor video above -- unless you're already trying to watch "The Lost Boys," then wait until later.
