Since making a huge splash online just over three years ago with their gritty spoof trailer Pokémon Apokélypse, the team at MegaSteakMan have delivered dozens of hilarious high-concept comedy sketches. Their dynamic, if not hyperactive, visual style is unmistakable. Now they are taking that pop-culture-fuelled energy, loading it into blender and pouring it into the comedic fantasy webseries Girls With Swords.
