Let your imaginations run wild about a spin-off series where Furiosa and Kimmy Schmidt are friends.
Do you spend your nights wondering about ‘The Doof Warrior’ aka Guitar Guy’s backstory? Will you be declaring yourself a member of the Church of Furiosa on the next census? Have you put in the forms to add Imperator onto your name yet? Only a week after its release, there’s no doubting the hysteria of Mad Max: Fury Road and namely, its main character, Imperator Furiosa, played by Charzlie Theron, who will surely be the inspiration for many a Halloween costume this year. The film will undoubtedly go down as one of the best reviewed of the year, and its well on the way to be one of the highest grossing Australian productions ever. The praise is with good reason too, its depictions of women are seen to be a massive step forward for the notoriously testosterone–fuelled action genre.
Everyone’s favourite post-apocalyptic episode of Wacky Races, to quote Russell Brand, has now hit the Inception level of cultural relevance however. To tide you over in between your repeat viewings of the film (because, come on, once is not enough), YouTube user (and genius) Albert Lopez has mashed up the high-octane, post-end-of-days anarchy with everyone’s other favourite apocalypse cult survivor from 2015 – the unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Now pick up what you can and run.
