G.I. JOE vs. The Thing?

Check out this fantastic stop-motion tribute to John Carpenter's THE THING on what I assume is the filmmakers MySpace or on YouTube. Described as such:

First non-official video clip made for Zombie Zombie, the electrifying French duo of Etienne Jaumet and Cosmic Neman. Directed by Simon Gesrel and Xavier Ehretsmann thanks to their favourite toys... the GI Joes ! The video is an hommage to the director AND soundtrack composer John Carpenter, especially one of his masterpieces : THE THING.

BTW, there's a rumour going around that 30 DAYS OF NIGHT creator Steve Niles is adapting a script for John Carpenter to direct. A good match, no?

The Steve Niles rumour is true, he said it in an interview on G4 during Comic-Con.
