- The director's appearance resembles famous filmmaker, Steven Spielberg. His white t-shirt says, "U.P." on it. Which probably means, "Universal Pictures." A reference to the major movie studio that produces and releases many of Spielberg's film such as Jaws, Jurassic Park and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.
