Toronto punks PUP released a new music video for their song “Sleep In The Heat.”
The music video features Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard. Finn plays a younger version of Pup lead singer Stefan Babcock. Our little punker befriends a stray dog who follows the tour van. Finn takes him in and they become friends. Eventually the dog gets sick so that band needs to really hustle to pay the vet bills. Eventually Finn pawns his guitar. The prognosis for the little guy isn’t good so Finn takes him on a adventure. It’s a beautiful music video.
Consequence of Sound has a quote from Babcock about the video.
“[Director] Jeremy [Schaulin-Rioux] was the one who thought we should make a video for this song,” he said. “He has this really weird one-eyed grumpy cat that he loves a lot, and I guess the song got him thinking about what it’s going to be like when she’s gone. Losing a friend is something so many of us have had to deal with, which is why I think this video is so powerful.”
