In an interview for the Elstree project,  director Walter Murch explained that Tik-Tok's physical performance was created by acrobat Michael Sundin : "he would put his legs down into Tik-Tok's legs, and then he would bend over looking through his legs, through his thighs, and then he would cross his arms [across his chest] to operate Tik-Tok's arms.
