* GaiasVengeance: The birds have become mutated suicide bombers due to global warming, apparently in the span of a day.

* GaiasVengeance: The birds have become mutated suicide bombers due to global warming, apparently in the span of a day. They movie even suggests (very bluntly) that the birds are intentionally targeting sources of pollution such as cars and gas stations, somehow understanding the complexities of man-made global climate change well enough to know its source.

* AuthorAppeal: Green Tech - to the point of giving Rod a hybrid Ford Mustang.
** Also in Nathalie's photoshoot, she wears Vietnamese fashions like an ''ao dai'', and for the date Rodd and Nathalie go to a Vietnamese restaurant. Director/Writer/Producer Nguyen is from Vietnam.
* AuthorAvatar: The protagonist of this (and those of the director's other two films) are tech salesmen. Guess what profession the director used to work in? The protagonist attracts a Victoria's Secret model by creepily stalking her.

** At each stop during the day of the attack, they get a large amount of water. At the first stop, they get a 24 pack of water bottles, then 2 1 gallon jugs of water at the next and then shortly afterwards stop to get water from a stream.



* CaptainObvious: The back of the DVD cover describes Nathalie as "a sexy lingerie model", [[SarcasmMode as opposed to all those plain, unattractive lingerie models we see so often on the Victoria's Secret catalog covers.]]

** The actress playing Nathalie is plenty attractive enough to play a model (in fact, Whitney Moore ''is'' a model, as is Alan Bagh (who plays Rod), but for someone who just landed a Victoria's Secret gig no one seems to have any confidence in the future of her career. (Judging by Mom, however, this may be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that she might lose her looks earlier than she'd like.)

Added DiffLines:

* TheQuietOne: The solar panel salesman is unusually soft-spoken, and seems to be intimidated by Rod throughout their scene for some reason.
