But, as was foretold, this is no mere coloring book. Each girl crush has a different activity, like creating your own Lady Gaga-style dress and matching the characters of Girls to their typical get-upsFun for the whole family.”

Their YouTube video, Hipster Olympics racked up nearly three million hits and quickly attained worldwide cult status amongst both the cool crowd (and those who like to poke fun at them). Their recent hit The Walken Dead was viewed over 600,000 times in less than three weeks. Now, the duo put their prolific creative talents to work in Coloring for Grown-Ups.
