Billy Corgan probably didn't have this in mind. Or maybe he did.
In any case, filmmaker Devin Graham brings us -- just in time for Halloween -- the real thing: smashing pumpkins.
Graham shot the video at 1,000 frames per second and slowed down the footage so we can see the pumpkins in all their glory. Watch as seeds, pulp and orange chunks go flying. Graham also reverses the footage, so you can see just how the Jack-o-lanterns break apart.
How about that song in the video? According to the video's YouTube description, Stephen Anderson, Graham's friend, wrote the song just for the video -- in 24 hours. Is it Halloween-y enough for you? Let us know in the comments.
