I Fight Dragons Go Inside The Game On New Video

By Staff in Arts & Entertainment on Jul 12, 2010 9:30PM

The last we talked about local power-poppers I Fight Dragons, the band was signing on to Atlantic Records. Now they've got a nifty new hand-animated video by Grey Gerling for "The Faster The Treadmill." As for the band's success, they'll go even wider when one of their songs - "Heads Up, Hearts Down," which, like "Treadmill," we first heard on their Cool Is Just A Number EP - will play during tomorrow night's finale of MTV's The Hills. But as for the below video, the description is as follows:

Follow the adventures of Puddlenaut as he defeats legions of bad guys and faces down the final boss. He has a shark instead of an arm, and carries a deadly harpoon.

However, one of the 'bad guys' is not so sure he wants to play his part in this game. Little Fetasaur finds himself idolizing Puddlenaut and questioning his purpose in a world that doesn't seem to give him many options.

It's a cool video for a great song. Jam out on your Monday afternoon.
