Well, that's one way to bid farewell to your trusty old vehicle...
Canadian noise-punks PUP have just brought out one of the most emotional videos of recent times. Vocalist Stefan's beloved car Mabu is on its last legs; as its grand send-off, it is entered into a demolition derby. The video chronicles the painstakingly delicate preparation required (dropping a TV on its boot lid and taking a hammer to the windows) and concludes with the derby itself and a heartbreaking funeral service. Oh, by the way... Wade MacNeil (Gallows, ex-Alexisonfire) is the priest officiating the funeral of the deceased automobile. *Sniff*
It's great that the car's resident chamelon makes it out alive, even if poor Mabu doesn't. BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE THE TURTLES AND THE GOLDFISH? :(
Regardless, RIP Mabu (1996-2014). We hope you're chilling in the great garage in the sky.
'PUP', the band's scuzzy self-titled debut LP, is out now on SideOneDummy.
