I am super late to the party with this “Cooking Hostile” cartoon. If you’re like me, head to the end of this post for a smile if not a hearty chuckle.
Go here to check out an interview with the creator of “Cooking Hostile,” the newly launched animated series based on a completely off-the-wall premise: Pantera’s Phil Anselmo hosting a cooking show.
“Cooking Hostile” is the brainchild of Gainesville, Florida’s Joey Siler, who also fronts the Pantera tribute band Good Friends & a Bottle Of Whiskey.
“I was just joking around at band practice after we got done jamming ‘5 Minutes Alone’ and I told the guys, ‘What if Phil had his own cooking show and I changed the lyrics to ‘5 Minutes On Low?’
“Everyone got a good laugh out of it. It was nothing more than a joke, but I had recently got into doing animation as a hobby at the beginning of this year and had messed around with making a few animations and decided to come up with some ideas for the ‘Cooking Hostile With Phil Anselmo’ video (viewable below).
“During the next week, I picked a few Pantera songs and worked on changing the lyrics up and showed the guys and they thought it was hilarious, so we laid down the tracks and I started working on the animation. The whole project was probably done in about four weeks.”
Anselmo had said in an interview he thought the cartoon was ‘fucking hilarious, fucking fantastic,” and gave it “two big thumbs up.”
“It was just great to hear he wasn’t suing us,” laughed Siler. “But really, Phil seems to have a great sense of humor and it was awesome to just to know he had seen it and got a good laugh out of it. We couldn’t have asked for a better response.”
