"Hunted by a Freak" is the instrumental first track from Mogwai
's 2003 release, Happy Music for Happy People
"Hunted by a Freak" also happens to be coupled with the single most heartbreaking video ever.
It is a four-minute long display of computer-generated animal cruelty
, and is as effective at making one depressed enough to enjoy the song as possible.
In it, a large unidentified character purchases various animals from a local pet store, and throws them off of the top of a building.
A red bird, its wings tied to its body. He desperatly tries to free himself, to no avail.
Two hamsters, who, in the clip's most gut-wrenching and bizarre sequences, embrace in free-fall
Two turtles, one of whom is crushed under the wheel of a passing car
And a puppy, held from and released by his head.
I'm unsure what Mogwai was shooting for with the clip, but I think they succeeded.
