True Survivor is the gloriously 80s, entirely over-the-top theme song to the upcoming Kickstarter-funded action-comedy Kung Fury, written and directed by David Sandberg. And to promote the project he hopes to turn into a feature film, Sandberg has created this undeniably epic music video teeming with the cheesiest of 80s-era excess – championed by The Hoff himself.

Based on sequences from the upcoming film, the video features "arcade-robots, dinosaurs, Nazis, Vikings, Norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure." In other words, the ultimate mash-up of geek culture around at the moment, and a wildly entertaining watch.
