The Adventures of Nunchuck Larry

A Letter Directly from the Director’s Dojo

This story, this script, this pilot…it came to me in a fever dream a few months ago.

It wasn’t until we were on set that it became clear where that dream came from. It was born from something not only inside of me, but inside of every man or woman, lion or child. It’s a feral rage-like emotion dressed in a leopard print vest with laser beam leggings. Larry is katanas and lightning bolts spewing from your eyes when you hear a maniacal electric guitar solo from across the dojo.

This perfectly timed scissor kick was made by a group of people who all looked inside themselves and found their own ‘chuck slinging mustachio’d warrior deep down, waiting for a full moon to be released on the world.

Portal A is all about making dope series that embrace the weirdness of the internet. The loud, epic, surprising videos that make us all stop in our tracks wherever we are to take part in something truly new. We want to see more of Larry, because he embodies these same values. He’s our spiit animal, and his adventures should be yelled from the mountaintops.

For all my comrades who helped create The Adventures of Nunchuck Larry: A Fascist Android Killed My Best Friend Sarge, there was a piece of common ground to stand on in perfect crane kick form. Larry was not a video or production. It was… and is… a way of life.

I’m proud to call everyone involved my family. The cast and the crew of…
