The yellow MFP helmet worn by one of the worms is a reference to the classic Australian film, "Mad Max" (1979). MFP stands for "Multi Force Police" and the yellow, red and blue design on the helmet is based on the color scheme of the MFP Ford Falcon XB police cruisers driven by Max Rockatansky (Mel Gibson) and other policemen.
