Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan has released a short film celebrating Easter.

The seven-minute video, titled An Easter Story, begins with Keenan telling a story of searching for one of the ducks he had raised on his property in Arizona. The duck had gone missing, and when Keenan found her, she was sitting on a batch of newly laid eggs.

That experience reminded Keenan of searching for Easter eggs as a kid. He proceeds to explain how eggs are connected to Easter and the spring season, which then leads to some philosophical pondering of the meaning of life itself, all while a mix of Puscifer‘s song “The Humbling River” plays in the background.

You can watch An Easter Story streaming now on YouTube.

In addition to narrating short Easter films, Keenan is preparing for Puscifer’s upcoming streaming concert, during which the band will play their 2015 album, Money $hot, in its entirety. The virtual show premieres April 17.

Puscifer previously played a streaming concert last fall to celebrate the release of their latest album, Existential Reckoning.
