We're told constantly that we should watch what we eat, and we're occasionally discouraged from starting food fights. For the most part, these statements are straightforward and practical. But what if this wisdom we've been passed down comes from a far more sinister place? The video for "Hungry,' by amazingly named Australian punk duo The Gooch Palms, asks that exact question, depicting a horrifyingly bad trip that involves food coming to life and unleashing a serious reign of terror. Not to spoil the ending, but it's probably safe to say you've never seen a food fight get this serious or this literal. We're talking seriously disturbing, gory shit here.
