Thanks to Kung Fury Backers, UÅ, family and friends
Kung Fury is a comedic action movie spoof that found success on Kickstarter, and while we're going to have to wait a little longer for the full short film, we can tide ourselves over with a hilariously over-the-top music video from singing actor David Hasselhoff. This is the film's theme song, "True Survivor."
The whole thing is a shameless '80s throwback, from Hoff's mullet right down to the new wave-style synth-pop song. This "Eye of the Tiger"-esque anthem features the chorus just "we need some action," and the accompanying video certainly lives up to that demand. It part kung fu flick, part Tron-aping sci-fi, part apocalyptic violence. Meanwhile, Hoff dons a bomber jacket and poses in front of a cool white sports car. Badass!
There are far too many great scenes to even begin to mention them all, so check it out above.
Kung Fury will come out online on May 28. -- Exclaim!
