We’re happy, I hope the fans are happy and I’m happy as a fan. Definitely there was a bit of pressure, because we want to make people happy and it’s a new platform now. It’s Vikings, it’s totally new. We don’t know if it’s going to be well received like ‘Oh my god this is the craziest thing or it’s going to be like ‘meh we want the old classic hoodies’. Hopefully it’s well received.
They gave us the direction. Me and the team had to dive deep into the history vaults of Google and find out the information on certain things, eras, looks, aesthetics and all that sort of stuff. They pointed us in the direction, for which we were thankful. It was crazy fun. The thing is, when you’re trying something new you’re also getting a history lesson, also learning.
