The title credits of the entire 2014 season of 'Key and Peele (2012)' directly spoof the Season 1 title credits of True Detective. Also, in every episode before each skit, Key & Peele are seen driving through the desert having philosophical (albeit humorous) conversations, in another direct spoof of the long and frequent scenes of driving and conversations in Season 1 of True Detective.

What is the name and the lyrics to the True Detective theme song?
"Far From Any Road" by The Handsome Family The lyrics of the full song:From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows, Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote.She twines her spines up slowly towards the boiling sun, And when I touched her skin, my fingers ran with blood.In the hushing dusk, under a swollen silver moon, I came walking with the wind to watch the cactus bloom.A strange hunger haunted me; the looming shadows danced. I fell down to the thorny brush and felt a trembling hand.When the last light warms the rocks and the rattlesnakes unfold, Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones.And rise with me forever across the silent sand, And the stars will be your eyes and the wind will be my hands.

Who is the Green-Eared Spaghetti Monster?
He is revealed in the last episode as Erroll Childress, also known in the show as "The Man With the Scars," and unofficially by fans as "The Lawnmower Man" because he is encountered by Rust and Marty, and later Gilbough and Papania, mowing lawns at a school and a cemetery, respectively, as part of a contract with the local parish. He is a local handyman and works for his father's company, Childress and Sons. He is seen at different times mowing schoolyard lawns and painting at elementary schools.Erroll Childress is revealed at the end of the first season as the killer of Dora Lange and others. A little girl being chased by him gave a description of him to police that resulted in the sketch depicting the "Green-Eared Spaghetti Monster." Viewers find out that Erroll's ears were green because he had recently put a fresh coat of green paint on the Fontenot house. He is a "spaghetti monster" due to his severe facial scarring.
