This isn’t for everyone, but it’s definitely for me.
As a child of the 80s, I grew up watching awesomely terrible animated series like “Voltron” and “Battle of the Planets.” Awkward dialogue, stiff animation and occasionally incredible 2D effects sequences imbued these shows with a strange charm.
Jake Portman’s latest short channels these endearing/cringeworthy shows and asks the question:
“What would really happen if you gave control of a giant killer robot to a group of teenagers?”
It’s a fantastic premise for a hilarious short. It reminds me a bit of the remixed Fensler GI Joe PSAs, but with a dash more innuendo. (Penis submarine, anyone?)
