Indie-rock heavyweight The Shins has recruited Emmy Award-winning director/animator Jamie Caliri to interpret “The Rifle’s Spiral,” a track off the band’s latest album, Port of Morrow.

The video below — also available for 24 hours over at Nowness — features The Nightmare Before Christmas-esque stop-motion animation involving three menacing, mustachioed men, a magician, and (of course) a rabbit.
