“This video was an absolute blast to make. Buz Hasson and Ken Haeser from the Corpse comic are 100% responsible for making this happen, so they deserve the most thanks.
"Dave Carey, our director, totally took charge of everything and did a great job. And we have to thank Walt and the guys at Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash for letting us take over their store. They couldn’t have been nicer about it.” More...
