Published Apr 22, 2015The Almighty Rhombus' newest video might be called "Down South," but the clip was actually filmed right in the band's hometown of Sudbury, ON.
The song is a punchy power-pop tune from last year's Lucid Living, and the music provides a peppy backdrop for a light-hearted tale about a big purple monster competing in a track and field event dubbed the Monster Olympics. In it, the monsters square off in events like kitten-tossing and child-chasing, with our star going head-to-head with his ghoulish-looking rival. The band make a brief cameo to get splattered by blood in a scene that adds a hint of gore to the otherwise goofy clip.
The clip was directed by Shawn Kosmerly. Scroll past the band's tour schedule to watch it below.
