Grizzly - INSTANT KARMA takes direct aim at trophy hunting. Born out of a crazy dream, the tables are turned on the poster child of trophy hunters, the obnoxious Ted Nugent. The adult Grizzly hunter, wearing a cowboy hat that says Fred Bear, one of Nugent’s songs, is standing over Dead Nugent posing proudly with his trophy. He doesn’t hunt for the biggest and strongest of humans. He hunts for the most obnoxious specimens, the ones that make you cringe when they open their blow holes. In this case he serves Nugent with a big dose of Instant Karma (nod to John Lennon intended), saving the world from this pompous and bloviating version of the American village idiot.
It may sound harsh, but anybody who kills for sport and trophy and brags about it being a spiritual experience is nothing but a small, petulant prick. He may not get instant karma, but karma’s a bitch and in the end, Ted Nugent will get what’s coming to him and the spirits of all those animals that he has killed will finally rest peacefully.
