Music Video: The New Pornographers, "Mutiny, I Promise You"

The New Pornographers' latest album, Challengers, really is the gift that keeps on giving. More than a year after the album hit stores, the supergroup has just released a video for "Mutiny, I Promise You," a bouncy Challengers track that gets the full-out fantasy treatment here.

This video envisions a world full of murderous bears, creative but possibly vengeful unicorns, cardboard harps, and one twisted caper involving some special guests. The Pornographers cram together in a cardboard box to play their tune and later celebrate with the various costumed animals to whom "mutiny" has been delivered.

Quirky? To say the least. But I like that this group always seems to be having a good time, so to watch them rock out on their cardboard keyboards and guitars, just click below.
