Mention the word “whale” to any fan of The Boys and one of the more memorable sequences of the second season is sure to pop to mind. Here’s a look at how it was done.

Together, the show’s visual FX supervisor Stephan Fleet and visual FX producer Shalena Oxley-Butler give us the lowdown on how they pulled off the massive stunt sequence, in this featurette from the fine folk at Variety.

It is rather gruesome at times, so BEWARE OF GORE AND THE ODD SWEAR.
