Back in 2014, Adult Swim’s Too Many Cooks short brought viewers into a bizarre, seemingly never-ending series of opening credit sequences for the most over-populated sitcom ever conceived. Too Many Cooks was an instant cult classic, and now Casper Kelly and Nick Gibbons (they produced, wrote, and directed the feature) have delivered a worthy follow up project: Final Deployment 4: Queen Battle Walkthrough. Essentially, it’s a parody of every twitch video game live stream walkthrough you’ve ever seen, with some very sublime and surreal humor throughout. Fair warning, this video has several NSFW moments.
Without giving too much away from the short’s narrative, Final Deployment 4 takes several twists and turns as it forces the viewer to question where the game begins and reality ends. Each major character is controlling someone else’s destiny, but none of them can escape their circular fate. It’s dark comedy at its finest, and another one of our new favorite shorts.
