Out of the Wong Fu Production vaults comes the original and OFFICIAL version of their classic “Yellow Fever”. It’s by far their most popular short film and it was created pre-YouTube popularity. Who remembers downloading the short or emailing the file around? They’ve uploaded Yellow Fever to their Youtube channel to celebrate it’s 4 year anniversary. One thing that’s different is the music in the short. They had to change it, since they didn’t own the rights to the original music.
The guys at Wong Fu Productions also added some bonus commentary at the end of the short. They have some great stories about what they thought of YouTube originally and reminisce about the past when their servers exceeded bandwidth limit and got a massive bill. Check out the blooper video for Yellow Fever too. Lots of butt slapping action.
Props to Wong Fu Productions for all they’ve accomplished in only 4 years and continually building up the Asian American community.
