There's a report on Electrek about a new Monty Python Easter egg:

I checked it out. It turns out there's an animation when you change your car's name to activate the Easter egg, too....

(Apologies for the shakicam -- this was recorded quickly using my iPad hand-held.)

I tried a few other names related to Monty Python but didn't find any other way to activate this (or anything similar), but of course my search for alternatives was far from exhaustive.

They are later, played by the phone when using smart summon.

Yes, that's what I'm referring to. It sounds like an actual horse galloping rather than someone mimicking that by striking two coconut halves together as in the Monty Python movie. My guess is that there's some copyright issue involved with the actual MP sound clip.

Agreed, they probably couldn't license the actual clip, and maybe too lazy to recreate. Perhaps they will put more effort in when it is released for the exterior speaker.
