It’s time for GrimTrax! For the first time ever, we’ve assembled five shorts about death, loneliness, and dismemberment into one big, old-fashioned yukfest.

On their own, they would have been too depressing to put out into the world. But together, they form into a Voltron of hilarity, if Voltron was eventually going to die facedown in the snow, sad and alone.

GrimTrax has it all: Old women. VERY old women. Factory workers getting maimed so badly it would make Chuck Hamlin blush (if he wasn’t already dead. From maiming.) Alcoholic NBA fans. Kids who get ignored to death. And a short that we actually recorded way back in 2012 and decided not to release until now because WE DIDN’T KNOW IF YOU COULD TAKE IT! So please ignore any jokes in that one about Linsanity or Gangnam Style, trust us, they were hilarious at the time!

Featuring host segments from Mike, Kevin, and Bill to guide you through the gloom, GrimTrax is the perfect entertainment for a dark winter evening. Watch it with your favorite Very Old Woman… IF SHE CAN HANDLE IT!

Written by: Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, Kevin Murphy, Conor Lastowka, Sean Thomason, Jason Miller, & Zach Shatzer
