Inspired by the true story of a coyote that rode Portland's MAX light rail train in 2002.



On the one hand, casting a coyote as the lead in Modest Mouse's new video for Strangers to Ourselves track "Coyotes" seems a little on the nose. That said, the little rust-coloured scavenger gets to ride public transit in the clip, and it's pretty damn adorable.

Apparently based on the true story of a coyote hopping on Portland's light rail system in 2002 (an incident also saluted by Sleater-Kinney), the video is a candid look at a canine's scenic transit ride through the City of Roses. Whether hopping from seat to seat, eyeballing prey, or dozing off and entering an in-the-wild dreamscape, the little furball has its voyage scored by the gentle, folkish flavours of Modest Mouse's new tune.

 You can catch the super cute clip above. 

Strangers to Ourselves arrives March 3 through Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock's own Glacial Pace imprint, but "Coyotes" goes up as a digital download tomorrow (January 20).
