It's cross brand promotion. Just like when we found out Disney was incorporating penis symbols and drug references in our beloved movies, turns out they were also conducting a bit of product placement.
When you were a kid, you probably didn't notice that the crab the Genie picks up in "Aladin" is the same one from "The Little Mermaid," but now that we're older and wiser (hopefully), we pick up on the little things.
It's like Pysch 100 all over again; you just love learning how you've been getting mind f*cked for years. But unlike when we learned how McDonald's chicken nuggets are filled with pig testicle, this is a finding we want to explore more of, giving us just another reason to roll a joint and watch "Monsters Inc." after work.
