“Moon Fight,” the first episode of “Wu Tang in Space Eating Impossible Sliders,” premiered last week.
The web series stars RZA (having uploaded his consciousness into the computer RZA 9000), GZA and Ghostface Killah. They all answer important viewer questions as they explore outer space and eat the new vegan-friendly Impossible Sliders from White Castle. It’s quite a ride, really.
The four-part online series features the cast aboard the Wu-F-O, orbiting Earth while answering questions left by fans at 1-833-4-SLIDER and eating White Castle’s new all-vegetarian Impossible Slider (RZA and GZA are both vegan, while Ghostface Killah is a vegetarian).
The series’ first episode focuses on the theme of perspective. RZA, GZA and Ghostface Killah marvel at planet Earth from outer space, take relevant questions from fans, invite a six year-old child on board the Wu-F-O and watch a Moonfight between two extra terrestrials. Forthcoming episodes focus on themes including Earth vs. Mars, infinity and evolution.
Shot in the style of ’60s and ’70s science fiction television shows such as “Star Trek,” the series is directed by critically acclaimed film director, DJ, producer and composer Sam Spiegel (N.A.S.A., Yeah Yeah Yeahs) who had previously worked with the Wu Tang members on The Spirit of Apollo, his 2009 collaborative album under the moniker N.A.S.A. with Brazilian DJ Zegon.
Writer Dan Curry (“The Eric Andre Show”) and Director of Photography Robert Yeoman (Wes Anderson) also contributed to the series, which is produced by the all-female creative department at Impossible, headed by Executive Creative Director Sasha Markova, Creative Director Giselle Guerrero and Managing Director Heather Huestis.
