According to Simon de Bruyn (Twitch):
“[The IF Thing] inspired short film that Nash Edgerton delivered when then-IF editor David Michôd commissioned video content for the Australian IF Awards – which basically sees Nash taking the piss out of the whole idea (although, yes, it’s all tongue-in-cheek)”.
