The Shins Recruit a Giant Man-Eating Bunny for “Rifle’s Spiral” Video

We welcomed the Shins‘ return this spring, not only because their fourth album Port of Morrow is a pleasure, but because the band keeps cranking out weird videos, too. We’ve seen them problem solve with clapping butter for Funny Or Die, as well as foreshadow a James Mercer funeral for “Simple Song.” For the clip to Morrow opener “The Rifle’s Spiral,” they teamed with acclaimed animator Jamie Caliri on a vignette about a rabbit that becomes way too powerful and decides to eat some people. It’s probably a metaphor for something (Mercer’s solo career?), but we’ll just leave it at that. [Via Nowness]
