Kung Fury is one of those things that I’m sure started as one hell of a joke, and just gained life of its own accord because of just how awesome the entire concept felt. It started as a trailer looking for Kickstarter funding–which it received and then some, but still falling short of the funds needed to pay for an full length feature film.

The entire film is a homage to cheesy 80s action flicks, and director David Sandberg also plays lead character, Kung Fury. Some scenes even look as if the entire film is being played back on an old VHS machine. Oh the memories! To top off the cheesiness, the film has a theme song by Mr Knight Rider himself, David Hasselhoff, titled “True Survivor“. The theme song vid on YouTube has well over 10 million views already, so I guess you can consider it popular? Watch the film after the jump and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
