This Pizza Bros episode is based on a true story. I (Ryan) actually got locked out of my car on a delivery with car still running and the pizzas still in the car.
It was difficult to envision what an 8 bit pixel art car would look like and how to actually put someone in it. I (Ryan) put Steve into his car by making separate sprites and layers, and then cutting around Steve’s body.
Comedy Writing and Pixel Art Coming Together
Because this was a real event that happened on a delivery, I wanted to capture the sound that the car doors made when they locked on me in real life. I heard this loud “THUNK” noise and then stood there jiggling the handle in disbelief. Like surely, if I jiggle it one more time, the door would magically unlock like nothing had ever happened?
Most Fun to Create
The pixel art sprite that was the most fun to create was the pizza splattered on the front door. The 8 bit pixel art pizza splatter was just ridiculous!
For me (Jessie) writing that scene was also the most fun to create. Like seriously? This cycle pizza jerk is just going to run off like that? LOL!
