This Blows co-creator and director Cole Northey shot a music video for The Dirty Nil - Zombie Eyed that became the spark inspiring development of the series.  In the video, Aleita Northey is hit by a car and then proceeds to skip down the road gleefully exploding everyone she sees.

It was a year later that Bruce McCulloch said "...I think that's a show" and began developing a story alongside Cole and Aleita Northey. Bruce's comedy prowess and experience was the invaluable asset needed to expand 'This Blows' into a full-fledged show.
