This is awesome, and I love how Alex Pardee goes above and beyond with marketing his products... this is not the first short film we have seen from him, and hopefully it's not the last because even though they tend to be a little "Mature" in subject mater, they bring a smile to my face... gotta love that cheesy horror!
[Press] Introducing…..our new mascot, the amazing T-Shirt Monster!On a day full of lies, I bring you awesome truths. That is the truth. Starring Kate Freund & Nip/Tuck's John Hensley, and from writer/director Stephen Reedy and myself comes the newest installment in our collaborative "filmmercials", created for my clothing & art company, Zerofriends. Oh, no! Kate is late for her date! And even worse, there's a monster in her closet whose plans include (not in any particular order): eating Kate, eating Kate, eating Kate, and oh, yah, eating Kate. What's a girl to do? And, more importantly, what is she going to WEAR if she makes it out alive!??
