Published Nov 14, 2013In what is surely one of the creepiest children's birthday parties we've ever seen, eclectic Winnipeg pop combo Royal Canoe have shared a music video for their song "Birthday."
The song is a quirky pop tune that veers between beat-driven indie rock and pitch-shifted hip-hop. The clip starts off unassumingly enough, with a birthday celebration at a diner, but things take a dark and surreal turn with an old man's face pasted on a young woman's body, a cook licking burgers, a kid drinking a mysterious blue liquid, and a man getting struck with some sort of air bullet.

The song comes from this year's Today We're Believers.
