Art Barnes drops by for Petunia-Liebling MacPumpkin’s latest video, “Frozen Fish”


Petunia-Liebling MacPumpkin

For “Frozen Fish,” the fifth video from her magnum opus, Fish Drive Edsels, Petunia-Liebling MacPumpkin enlisted a famous friend for help: Bill Mumy, aka Art Barnes, one-half of legendary comic rock duo Barnes & Barnes. According to our sources at Petunia’s label, Electric Phantom, the video is a dramatic reenactment of how she and Mumy actually met, when she sent him fan mail wrapped around an actual dead frozen fish in tribute to Barnes & Barnes’ most famous song, “Fish Heads.” While we cannot confirm how much of the story is actually true, it certainly makes for an entertaining video—although we’re glad we’re not watching it in Smell-O-Vision.

Art Barnes isn’t the video’s only cameo: Evil sock puppet Werman, who first appeared in Petunia’s video for “Aquatic Plumbing,” also drops by, as does the (as far as we know) nameless apparition that looks like a hand covered with eyeballs from “Lonely Lady,” which has picked up some mad keyboard skills since we saw it last. At this rate, Petunia-Liebling MacPumpkin’s videos are going to rival Pee-wee’s Playhouse when it comes to weird recurring characters.

For those of you keeping score at home: Petunia’s next video should be for the Fish Drive Edsels track “House Plants.” Here’s a taste.
