Ever wanted to travel through time riding a dinosaur, just to uppercut Hitler in the nuts?

Well David Sandberg did. The Swedish VFX artist and director not only wrote the script for Kung Fury, but also starred in it. The 30-minute sci-fi adventure comedy couldn’t have been packed with more dope. The film’s plot is riddled with everything from a Triceratops headed cop, to an arcade game morphed into a killer Nazi robot. Yeah, it’s like that.

But the most amazing part of Kung Fury’s success doesn’t come from the film’s retro-‘80s cop-movie-swag, but actually how the whole project came to fruition in the first place.

Sandberg created a trailer for the movie as a bid for funding on Kickstarter. And as you can already tell, that thing killed. He managed to raise over $680,000 from over 17,000 hyped donors.

And as of June 2, the team created Kung Fury: Street Rage, the video game. It’s available on the App Store, Google Play and Steam, so you can smash heads from the comfort of your smartphone.

Not only that, but an update on Kung Fury’s Kickstarter page mentions the possibility of a $1,000,000 extended feature film goal that until recently, was a total shot in the dark. It’s looking like they’re going to make it a reality very soon.

If that doesn’t convince you to spend a half hour watching it, then just consider this: David Hasselhoff rocks a glistening mullet and fingerless gloves in his contribution to the film’s soundtrack, “True Survivor.” You can thank us later.
