There is something hairy and mysteriously hidden throughout the box office hit Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. Now it can be revealed with video proof.
He is Sasquash and he lives.
Like his famous cousin Sasquatch/Bigfoot, Sasquash stays very much behind the scenes in Meatballs 2.
In fact, you really do need the attached production featurette to find him. Let this be your guide to Sasquash, the ultimate film Easter egg.
"Sasquash ended up being kind of the perfect background character," says Pete Travers, the film's VFX supervisor in the clip. "The directors wanted to take it even further, like Big Foot sightings. Bigfoot is always in the shadows and blurry or whatever."
So is Sasquash. There are at least 10 sightings of the wordless creature in the film, revealed here.
"He's never prominent, never featured, but he's always there," Travers says. "And he's introduced in so many places."
Pretty much every crowd scene has Sasquash somewhere. And the featurette even has a back story for his hidden existence.
The creature likes odd pleasures, including bathing in pickles, boating and watching television.
And Sasquash can even Transmorgify which is … well, just watch the clip.
