Enter True Detective Picachu.
The clever yet disturbing short comes from the minds of Sam and Bill Comedy, a comedy music act.
“I originally wrote a version of this sketch in a pitch packet for a writing job that my lit agent sent me. I didnt get the job and then got dropped by my lit agent. So of course, I sprung into action wasting a ton of money making this comedy abomination. Now nobody else has a lit agent. Coincidence? Yes.”
Pokemon lore stitches everything together. Pikachue isn’t the only bizarre Pokemon/human hybrid character. Watch for Wartortle, James from Team Rocket, Vulpix, and Officer Jenny (who seems to be every other police officer).
It’s beautifully shot, capturing the look and feel of HBO’s True Detective. Other Pokemon populate this dark buddy cop story, all leading up to that epic punchline at the end.
When you open the weird barrel and scoop some out, True Detective Pikachu is floating right there at the top.
The theatrical film Detective Pikachu starring Ryan Reynolds hits screens May 9.
