PUP's new music video is an interactive FMV game


Punk's not dead (neither's FMV)

Canadian punk band PUP, famous for their retro-game inspired "DVP" video last year, are at it again with their new "Old Wounds" video, which is a playable FMV-esque video game.

After watching the first clip, you can make a selection of decisions for the band members that play out through interconnecting YouTube videos, whilst the song blazes away in the background. there's also appearances from some suspiciously recognisable sprites.

It's a fun and inventive idea, and even if it's not the ideal way to hear a band's new track, I for one appreciated the Under a Killing Moon/Corpse Killer-vibe I got from the whole thing, I also thought it was pretty funny and I liked the song, so success all round!

You can play it yourself below (though you have to go through to YouTube as annotations are required) The song lyrics are NSFW, and it might be a bit loud for you, Grandad.
