If you’ve been craving a dose of extreme ’80s, today’s your lucky day. The full throwback extravaganza, Kung Fury, has finally hit the web. Written and directed by David Sandberg, the short film features all the gravely voiceovers, synth sountrack, robots, arcades, Converse kicks, and scissor door sports cars you can possibly handle in 30 minutes. You may remember from our previous coverage, Sandberg ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for the film back in 2013, raising more than $630,000 from upwards of 17,000 contributors.
The film follows a kung fu cop, cut from I-Wear-My-Sunglasses-At-Night, denim-sporting 80s action hero cloth, who travels back in time to defeat the most deadly kung uu master of all time, Adolf Hitler. The pic is an unceasing barrage of the decade’s notoriously over-the-top sensibilities, including a single and music video from The Hoff himself, ’80s icon David Hasselhoff. Check out Kung Fury for yourself, in it’s full glory below.
Oh, and in case you were curious, here’s that Hasselhoff music video, too.
Here’s the synopsis for Kung Fury.
Kung Fury is an over-the-top action comedy written and directed by David Sandberg. The movie features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure.
During an unfortunate series of events a friend of Kung Fury is assasinated [sic] by the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time; Adolf Hitler, a.k.a Kung Führer. Kung Fury decides to travel back in time, to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler and end the Nazi empire once and for all. Kung Fury is a visually spectacular action comedy that has it’s foundation in 80s cop movies.
