To Switch a Flick

‘It seems as if a flick had been switched on ... ’ (Straits Times, 29 July 2008, quoting an expert witness).

Odd one, this — the usual expression is ‘to flick a switch’. What’s even more surprising, perhaps, is that ST reported him verbatim (assuming this was what he actually said).
