Weiss begin their statement by explaining why they used the prop that bears resemblance to the former president. "We can't afford to have these all made from scratch, especially in scenes where we need a lot of them, so we rent them in bulk."

"After the scene was already shot, someone pointed out that one of the heads looked like George W. Bush. In the DVD commentary, we mentioned this, though we should not have," the writer duo add, admitting that their decision to confirm it was not right.
