Atmosphere tapping the legend of Paul Bunyan for their latest video, Bob Seger.  Slug explains:

“it’s about how the legend of paul bunyan began.
it wasn’t really a blue ox.
it was a blue axe. but the accent made it sound like ox.
blue from the blood of the evil canadian soldiers.

it was filmed in northern minnesota. iron range.”
