The Offspring Debut Animated Action Flick for ‘Dividing By Zero/Slim Pickens': Watch
By Jay Tilles
The Huntington Beach punk band combined “Dividing By Zero” and “Slim Pickens Does the Right Thing and Rides the Bomb to Hell” and set the tracks to the video, directed by Philadelphia animator Anthony Schepperd.
The five-minute fantasy flick follows a rebel in his quest to fight evil as the angel of doom fights his every move, first in a daring fight among airplanes, then in a hellish purgatory where he faces certain death.
Ultimately, he finds himself facing a post-apocalyptic world where the lines between good and evil are blurred.
The Offspring is midst of the Summer Nationals 2014 Tour with Bad Religion and Pennywise, taking a detour to play Live 105’s Punk Rock Picnic Aug. 31, Chicago’s Riot Fest Sept. 12, and Aftershock Festival with Weezer, Dead Sara and more Sept. 13.
The band’s next album and followup to Days Go By is expected next year.
