Yeah, those are references from the event as a whole, not the video in particular.

The dashboard of the Tesla says "Don't Panic" (and there's a towel in the glove compartment) [Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy].

"Starman" is the name of the mannequin, and they played "Life on Mars" when the Tesla was deployed [David Bowie].

The drone ship landing barges are named "Just Read the Instructions", and "Of Course I Still Love You" [Iain M. Banks' Culture novels].
