Shepherd Kicks It With Tenacious D

Canadian animator Matt Shepherd has gone to great lengths to prove that he is a bigger fan of JB, KG and Tenacious D than any of us. Ron Doucet has brought to my attention Shepherd’s latest Flash-animated short, titled Kick It, which unofficially borrows audio from the very first Tenacious D episode, The Search for Inspirado, and brings new life to 10-year old material. To see some stills from the 2-minute project, head over to Shepherd’s blog. [NSFW - strong language]

If you like that, don’t miss his homage to Ron Burgundy.
