Punish Fort, Framed

Welcome back to Framed, readers. This week, we're presenting the Best Video We've Ever Seen.

It's the work of Punish Fort, a Seattle-based hard rock band, and is from their 2008 album, the niftily-titled Cripe, All Mighty. The song, about a creepy pumpkin-headed being, is called "Pumpkinhead," and--although it's absolutely the most obscure video to ever grace our blog--it shows that great art is not the province of the corporations. Good work, Punish Fort!

Pumpkinhead, unsurprisingly, is no friend to we humans. Watch as a terrorized citizen attempts to flee, only to be cornered by the cunning vegetable-man! Quake at Pumpkinhead's macabre stand-up routine! Listen as Punish Fort repeats the word "pumpkinhead" interminably!

What do you say, readers? Can you name a better music video? Should Punish Fort be forever remembered as geniuses of the art form? Should we go back to doing today's hottest-selling artists?

We await your verdict as well as your breathless thanks!
