Smashing Pumpkins post female wrestling short film online - video
Smashing Pumpkins have posted a 12-minute short film to accompany their new single 'Owata' online, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch it.

The short film is an in depth look at the life of two female underground wrestlers, with attention paid to their lives, training regimes and bouts.

Smashing Pumpkins’ frontman Billy Corgan is known to be a big fan of professional wrestling, with the results of wrestling matches regularly featuring in his Twitter updates.

The clip is the second bizarre promo the Chicago band have posted in the last few days. Last week, they released a 22-second commercial featuring basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar slam dunking a pumpkin as promotion for their new album. You can see the clip below.

The band will release their ninth studioalbum 'Oceania' later in the year.
