New Spinal Tap Short Film Debuts on iTunes


So now that the Blu-ray release of This is Spinal Tap is out, the band’s “reunion album” Back from the Dead has hit stores, and their Unwigged & Unplugged tour has concluded, is there any other possible way for them cash in on the 25th Anniversary of the original movie? Of course there is! This week they’ve released a brand new short film on iTunes called Stonehenge: ‘Tis A Magic Place, which finds the band members embarking on a pilgrimage to the mystical monument that they “put on the map” with their song.

At just 7 minutes in length, one might question whether it is truly worth the $1.99 price tag — especially since it could have easily been included as an extra on the Blu-ray. With all the extra little short films and things they’ve done over the years, couldn’t they have just put together a full-fledged sequel? Either way, I’m sure the hardcore fans will want to give it a look. Check out a short video of the band promoting the short film after the jump. (Thanks to Chian for the heads up!)
