THE RUDE, RIOTOUS SKETCH COMEDY FROM SOCIAL MEDIA SENSATIONS, THE BONDI HIPSTERS
Created by Nick Boshier and the Van Vuuren Bros, the creative team behind viral social media hits Bondi Hipsters and Beached Az, Soul Mates is a loosely narrative sketch comedy series that follows the incarnations of two self-important wannabes who bicker, clash and bond their way through time and space.
Best friends forever, the series follows these kindred spirits as they become trapped in a cycle of death and rebirth, exploring love, loyalty and fashion across five different lifetimes: Cavemen 50,000 years ago, a royal master and his lowly servant in Ancient Egypt, Kiwi Assassins in 1981, Bondi Hipsters in the present day and as agents toiling in the offices of Travel Time in the year 2093.
Through it all, they stick together as they work to resolve the age-old question: if you were just some dickhead in a past life…will you be a dickhead forever?
A viral hit with millennial audiences, the Van Vuren Bros and Soul Mates YouTube channels boast over 30 million views to date, with their ‘Closed Café’ skit from Series 2 reaching more than 1.7 million people on Facebook alone, following its premiere broadcast on ABC TV.
