Video: Smashing Pumpkins – “Owata”

on June 29, 2011, 11:36pm

Where the hell do we begin? Let’s start with the facts: Billy Corgan’s Smashing Pumpkins have a new video for their past single, “Owata”, off the still evolving 44-track effort, Teargarden By Kaleidyscope. (The same album which will contain the previously released two EPs and the forthcoming album-within-an-album, Oceania, which is currently being endorsed by one Kareem Abdul-Jabar.) Instead of issuing a quick three to four minute video, which is apparently in the pipeline too, Corgan’s attached his song to director Robby Starbuck’s 12 minute short film about female underground wrestling. Yeah, there’s a quick contender for zaniest paragraph of the year.

The whole shebang’s pretty self explanatory, but if you’re still confused, here’s an easy image to swallow: Think about all those times you’ve kept your iTunes playing while you’ve had the television on in the background. It’s sort of chaotic, but it just blends together without you even knowing it – that is, until your spouse or roommate asks you what the hell you’re doing. The clip for “Owata” feels exactly like that, only the music stops every couple of minutes and the movie’s garbage. To be honest, you’d be better off watching this again, instead. Though, if you’re feeling frisky, check out the clip above, courtesy of Yahoo Music.
