Schwarzenegger, Wilt Chamberlain, and Andre the Giant party in Mexico City

Did you know that Andre the Giant, Wilt Chamberlain, and Arnold Schwarzenegger used to party together? Think about that. Think about the gross abundance of personality, ego, and straight-up mass all at one table breaking bread. It’s mind-blowing. There is no modern-day equivalent.

When Arnold came to the Grantland Studios and told Bill the tale of an evening on the town with Andre and Wilt, we knew that we had to animate it — we just didn’t know how. The geniuses at Powerhouse Animation suggested that comic-book style was the only way to do these real-life superheroes justice. They were totally right. Enjoy.
