Ever wonder what the groundhog does the other 364 days of the year? The answer may frighten you, according to Pennsylvania's Department of Tourism and Philly-based agency Red Tettemer. To drum up excitement leading up to Groundhog Day on February 2, a series of nine videos starring the prognosticating marmot himself are being released on groundhog202.com. The kicker? The epic story of the groundhog's struggle against cabin fever, his own shadow and the pressure of the world's winter riding on his furry back triggers a steady descent into madness—precisely mirroring the characters and plot of that classic Jack Nicholson thriller, The Shining!
