Say 'Hebbo' to Tarvuism!

Serafinowicz sets up bogus religion

Peter Serafinowicz and his Look Around You co-creator Robert Popper have created a bogus new religion on the internet.

Tarvuism claims there are two universes, that octopuses are holy, and that everyone in this universe has an invisible guardian from the other one.

The pair are working on a comedy series for US network Adult Swim about the religion.

But Popper said: ‘In the meantime we thought we'd start the whole religion on the net. It seems to have gone a bit crazy....’

They have made this video to promote Tarvuism:
