Lucha Libre Madness Ensues In "Legend Of The Flying Tomato"
In the face of adversity, a young redheaded girl mockingly called 'Tomato Head' finds an unlikely source of inspiration via lucha libre in this positively kick ass short by Michael Yates, Aurry Tan and Sharon Huang (Ringling). The short is overflowing with stylish touches that we've come to expect from titles like Street Fighter IV and anime. Heck, the group even called themselves Giñu Force, a not so subtle Dragon Ball reference.
When her past comes back to haunt her mid battle, she finds strength in the one thing that held her back for years. Fantastic job to the entire team, this was quite a fun watch.
Once a victim of bullying, Frida finds a hero in the legendary luchador El Pirana. However she finds herself at her lowest once more when she's ridiculed during the biggest wrestling match of her life. Through an unexpected meeting with a mysterious taco salesman, Frida learns that she must find strength in herself to overcome her demons.
