July 6 (UPI) -- If you love "Doctor Who" or "Back to the Future," you'll love watching McDonald talk to the boy he was two decades ago in 1992.

Using edited clips from a 20-year-old VHS tape, McDonald sits down with a glass of whiskey and has a wistful, frustrating and hilarious conversation with the sarcastic boy he once was. Or maybe still is?

The short film also refers to "Blink," a popular episode of British science-fiction show "Doctor Who," in which the Doctor has a video conversation with someone from a different time.

The filmmaker denied any claims that he faked the video tweeting: If I was going to fake it, I would've written it differently...but I was locked into what I improvised 20 years ago."

McDonald's 12-year-old self also reminded him of a long-forgotten passion, animating cartoon characters.

"Drawing was my first love until the internet starting eating up my time in the mid 90s. Now I'm trying to reconnect with my first love by way of the thing that killed it," he muses on his Tumblr page, where he's now asking readers to submit drawing ideas.
