An official selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, the visually spectacular 30-minute action comedy was created by Swedish filmmaker David Sandberg and backed by the Kickstarter community.

Today, "Kung Fury" has raised $630,019 and has over 10 million views of the trailer on YouTube.

The film follows Kung Fury's revenge after one of his friends was assassinated by the most dangerous Kung Fu master criminal of all time: Adolf Hitler, aka Kung F�hrer. Kung Fury travels back in time to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler, avenge his friend, and end the Nazi empire once and for all.

David Hasselhoff performed his theme song for the groundbreaking short film, "True Survivor," and commented that "The 80s was about fun, action, and heroes. Kung Fury has it all! I'm honored to be involved with David Sandberg, an up-and-coming force of nature in the animation digital entertainment world. The song is perfect for me as I really am, in real life, a True Survivor."

David Sandberg is a Swedish filmmaker with years of experience in directing television commercials and music videos. In 2012, he quit the commercial directing business, opened his production company Laser Unicorns, and focused on writing the script for "Kung Fury." The film stars Sandberg as Kung Fury, Eleni Young as Barbarianna, Helen Ahlson as Katana, Andrea Cahling as Thor, Steven Chew as Dragon, Leopold Nilsson as Hacker-man, Jorma Taccone as Adolf Hitler, and Per-Henrik Arvidius as Chief McNichols.

The filmmakers will soon be going into production to launch a full-length version of the film. Check out the original short film Kickstarter campaign here!
