The four-part online series “Wu Tang in Space Eating Impossible Sliders” stars Wu Tang Clan members RZA (having uploaded his consciousness into the computer RZA 9000), GZA and Ghostface Killah aboard their spaceship, the Wu-F-O, orbiting Earth while answering questions left by fans at 1-833-4-SLIDER and eating White Castle’s new all-vegetarian Impossible Slider (RZA and GZA are both vegan, while Ghostface Killah is a vegetarian).
Watch the series’ teaser video at https://www.instagram.com/p/BnbkgkqlKKw. Fan questions run the gamut from the sublime (“What is the meaning of life?”) to the practical (“Should I stay in school?”) and even the silly (“What is my dog thinking?”).
The series’ first episode focuses on the theme of perspective. RZA, GZA and Ghostface Killah marvel at planet Earth from outer space, take relevant questions from fans, invite a six year-old child on board the Wu-F-O and watch a Moonfight between two extra terrestrials. Forthcoming episodes focus on themes including Earth vs. Mars, infinity and evolution.
Shot in the style of ’60s and ’70s science fiction television shows such as “Star Trek,” the series is directed by critically acclaimed film director, DJ, producer and composer Sam Spiegel (N.A.S.A., Yeah Yeah Yeahs) who had previously worked with the Wu Tang members on The Spirit of Apollo, his 2009 collaborative album under the moniker N.A.S.A. with Brazilian DJ Zegon. Writer Dan Curry (“The Eric Andre Show”) and Director of Photography Robert Yeoman (Wes Anderson) also contributed to the series, which is produced by the all-female creative department at Impossible, headed by Executive Creative Director Sasha Markova, Creative Director Giselle Guerrero and Managing Director Heather Huestis.
