A Metal Music Video for Watership Down

(Video Link)

On long car trips, Richard Adams made up stories about rabbits to entertain his daughters. Then he wrote them into his first novel, Watership Down, published in 1972. Other people picked up the story, contributed to it, and let it go. There was a movie, a television show, role-playing games, and art. This is fitting, for Adams sees the collective unconscious as an unbroken web of stories that all of humanity shares.

Now the power metal band Trick or Treat retells and shares the Watership Down story. Their music video for "The Great Escape" recounts Bigwig's raid on Efrafa and the subsequent battle at the Watership warren. Humans dressed as lop-eared rabbits vividly display the courage of Bigwig, the savagery of Woundwort, and the intensity of Fiver.

Content warning: violence and gore. General Woundwort wouldn't have it any other way.
