Shiina Ringo Releases Fantastical Video for “Niwatori to Hebi to Buta”

As previously announced, Shiina Ringo will release her new album, “Sandokushi”, on May 27. Ahead of the album’s release, she’s released the music video for the album’s opener, “Niwatori to Hebi to Buta.” In the clip, Ringo’s dancer AYA SATO plays the titular chicken, snake, and pig, the three animals which represent the three poisons in Buddhism: greed, anger, and delusion, respectively.

The video’s director / Ringo’s lover, Kodama Yuichi, said that the music video for “Niwatori to Hebi to Buta” is linked to the more recent videos of this era, those being “Kamisama, Hotokesama”, “Nagaku Mijikai Matsuri”, “Menukidori”, and “Kemono Yuku Hosomichi.” He explained that all those videos took place in Tokyo the same night, and that the video for “Niwatori to Hebi to Buta” is another story of that night.
