In the name of science, the Canadian Space Agency sent thousands of chimpanzees on ill-fated voyages to the stars. Not even science could explain what happened next…
This project was the most fun I’ve ever had making films. Honestly, if I could pair up with awesome pro-wrestlers to make kickass origin stories for the rest of my life, I would be a very happy man.
Growing up, my dream was to become a professional wrestler, so working together with Space Monkey, a wrestler whose work I legitimately love, has been a tremendous privilege for this lifelong rasslin’ fan.
Please enjoy. ❤
