While I’m not a big survival horror fan, and have only played a couple of Resident Evil games briefly, there was no denying that the recently released Resident Evil 2 remake looked pretty awesome. Watching a couple of videos of it on YouTube I was introduced to an intimidating character called Mr. X, someone fans of the series are very familiar with.

In the Resident Evil 2 remake, he’s basically a giant, murderous Mr. Freeze dressed like Humphrey Bogart at the end of Casablanca who relentlessly pursues the player. Modders immediately began having fun with the character, replacing him with various things.

SXSW 2018: ‘Gym Buddies’ Celebrates The Ridiculousness Of Fitness Culture

I think we can all agree, the rise of fitness-minded products, services, and trendy exercise activities (like goat yoga or punk rock aerobics) is a topic that’s rife with potential for ridicule and humor.

That’s also the basis behind new web series Gym Buddies, which follows the tale of Aparna (Nikita Redkar), a social-media obsessed millennial stereotype in her 20s, as she sets out on a huge healthy lifestyle change prompted by a recent breakup. She enlist her best friend Quinn (Chelsea Lane) to be her designated gym bud, to which Quinn begrudgingly agrees to.
