My heart tells me I’ve been burned by shows with weird names before — but my head tells me that if it’s coming from the creators of “Dick Figures” and the twisted minds at Mondo Media, its gotta be goddamn awesome. Submitted for your consideration, NMR presents “Aachi & Ssipak,” a YouTube series in the vein of a more violent “Mad Max” — or a funnier “Aeon Flux.” Have I got your attention?
From Mondo: “Aachi & Ssipak are 2 likable street hoodlums who scrape by stealing and selling “Juicybars,” highly addictive blue popsicles distributed by the government in exchange for human excrement, the only usable fuel in Shibal, a dystopian, futuristic, post-apocalyptic city.”
The show takes a bizarre Korean cartoon and revoices it with the mad glee of Ed Skudder and Zack Keller. So whatever the hell it was before, now it’s really strange.
The film will be broadcast on Mondo Media’s YouTube channel as a “Streamium” release, a method pioneered by Mondo Media wherein the feature length film is distributed in weekly ad-supported chapters on YouTube while simultaneously being released in its entirety on Google Play and other paid/rental digital platforms. Like crack, they’ve given us the first couple for free. Now that we’re hooked, Mondo is going to take all our money for sure.
