On Thursday, Baltimore-based funk quartet Pigeons Playing Ping Pong released a new video for “King Kong” featuring the Here Come The Mummies horn section via Rolling Stone.

Directed by lauded photographer/videographer Jay Blakesberg, PPPP’s new video highlights their appearance at the 2019 Summer Camp Music Festival both onstage and backstage. moe. guitarist Al Schnier and drummer Vinnie Amico make cameos in the video, as well as Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe guitarist DJ Williams.

The video plays on Here Come The Mummies’ sit-in with the band at SCAMP. As the band members prepare for their set, they are hunted down one by one by the pack of roving musical mummies who turn them into mummies themselves.

“I remember sharing a laugh over our collective stank face when we first laid down this punchy groove at band practice,” Pigeons’ Greg Ormont explained to Rolling Stone. “We quickly fleshed out some parts and gave it a metaphorical exclamation point when we screamed ‘King Kong’ to match our intense energy.”
