See a Kid-Peasant Revolt in the Decemberists’ ‘This Is Why We Fight’ Video


Colin Meloy channels his YA novel side with this video, which is basically a short reenactment of the Hunger Games, except with Napoleon running the Capitol. (Also, the kids don't kill each other onscreen, but things look pretty grim; you have to assume a deadly bread riot breaks out at some point.)
