Many years ago, Kevin Smith retired from the world of filmmaking. For one reason or another, he felt like that stage of his career was done, and he had no intention of going back. And then Smodcast happened. in one pivotal episode, he and Scott Mosier created a movie premise in their random discussions — a premise that would ultimately become Tusk, Smith’s second horror movie.
Reactions to the movie overall were…decidedly mixed, but it’s one that Smith stands by to this day. Now, on his official YouTube channel, Smith has released a feature-length documentary called Walrus Yes — a reference to the hashtag that Smith asked fans to tweet if they approved of him making the film — which chronicles the creation of the thing.
Directed by Jason Mewes, it takes us back in time to a simpler age, starting with the preproduction of the incredibly weird film that would kickstart the weirder side of Kevin Smith’s career, which would eventually lead to weird duds like Yoga Hosers.
