Thanks to Eneas of Knights of the Temple, I came across this Canadian metal outfit from my very own home province of British Columbia, Unleash the Archers. They have recently released their second album, Demons of the Astrowaste, and it was accompanied by this fantastic video.
It might take a true British Columbian (or Pacific Northwesterner if you're from the States) to realize the genius of this video. The myth of the Sasquatch, AKA Bigfoot, is something we all grow up with here, and I doubt there is a tyke out there who goes camping out in the woods at some point in his or her childhood without wondering if he/she/it is out there lurking in the forest.
Or, it could be just me.
Right now, I fear bears and cougars when I go hiking and camping out in yonder mountains, so I carry bear spray and a whistle and hope for the best (so far so good).
Not too far from these parts, over the border, there is a music festival called the Sasquatch Festival, and it's on next weekend, which is an American long weekend (ours is this weekend, lucky me). Our local big beer company, Kokanee, has successfully used Sasquatch in many an advertising campaign - and even I like those ads (here's a classic from 1985).
This video is hilarious to me and it gave me a good laugh this weekend, one I really needed.
