Pup have released a new animated video for the song off their latest album Morbid Stuff, “Sibling Rivalry” which is illustrated by the band’s own Stefan, who says of the video:
“This song is about weirdo camping trips my sister and I take every year. We’ve gotten lost in the Northwest Territories, spent 3 weeks drifting down a river in the Yukon, and have been stranded in a blizzard on Cape Horn. Almost all of these trips end in disaster, which I guess means we are really bad at camping. But they are also some of the most fun things I’ve ever done in my life.
I started drawing comics to try and tell some of these stories, and those comics formed the basis of this video. The thing is, I’m really really bad at drawing. I draw like a 5 year old, but I love doing it. There’s something liberating about diving headfirst into something you know is going to turn out like absolute trash. Luckily for me and the puppies, we have a friend named Marty MacPherson who is an incredible artist and animator, and he really helped bring these stories to life, and injected a ton of his own personality into the thing.”
