The latest video from chiptune rock stars Anamanaguchi doesn't have as many meows as the first, but it does have a space-bound slice of pizza. The video is for the title track off of the band's new album, Endless Fantasy, and the funding for the slice's voyage came from Anamanaguchi's ongoing Kickstarter campaign. "Literally the first thing we did with your funding was send a slice of NYC pizza to outer space," the band wrote in an update today.

Unfortunately, while it makes for a fun video, the prank almost got them in some trouble. After filming the slice's voyage, bass player James DeVito received an email from an environmental medicine professor at NYU, who learned about the prank after the package landed in a family's backyard on its way back down to earth. "We later find out that he was literally about to call the state police to have the bomb squad come and detonate the box," DeVito tells Grantland, "and we'd lose all the footage."
