“I keep my mouth shut now. I’ve turned into a professional coward.” – Hunter S. Thompson in 1967

In the 1960s, Hunter S. Thompson spent more than a year living and drinking with members of the Hell’s Angels motorcycle club, riding up and down the California coast. What he saw alongside this group of renegades on Harleys, these hairy outlaws who rampaged and faced charges of attempted murder, assault and battery, and destruction of property along the way–all of this became the heart of Thompson’s first book: Hell’s Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga. Animated by Patrick Smith and produced by David Gerlach, this amazing cartoon is based on a radio interview Thompson gave shortly after the book came out.
