A love story... kinda.

Pop'n'Gum was inspired by the song "Pop'N'Gum" by Superbus. The French lyrics translate to be about popping bubbles when chewing gum. However, it sounded like it was more about Bonnie & Clyde type characters to me.

It developed into a dark comedy after adapting the sweets theme to the weaponry and visual style. 'Bomb-pops', C4 ice cream cones, a napalm/whip cream-thrower, and a gumball minigun disguised as a giddy desert helped fuel grim undertones.
