That Wayne Coyne–Miley Cyrus love affair has officially lasted longer than most Hollywood couples, as the pair has teamed up once again, this time for a trippy short film entitled “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain”.
Both The Flaming Lips and Cyrus have performed on-stage together not once, but twice in just the last couple of months alone. The two are also set to appear on each other’s forthcoming albums, Cyrus’ next solo LP and the Lips’ Sgt. Pepper’s covers album. Now, with the help of Moby, their new “SuperFreak” video is yet another chapter in what’s likely going to be one of music’s most bizarre collaborative sagas of 2014. (I mean have you seen their matching tattoos?)
“This is the video we originally intended to be for a song that has a reference to the drug LSD,” Lips frontman Wayne Coyne explained Rolling Stone. “We were lucky enough to get a couple of hours with a bedridden Miley Cyrus. And even though she was still quite ill, she was full of laughs and great absurd suggestions.”
Coyne went on to explain the concept behind the visuals:
“The video story is something like this: Moby is an evil, power-hungry cult leader. He wants the world’s most valuable (according to our story) psychedelic supernatural possession… John F. Kennedy’s brain….the brain contains the original formula for the drug LSD!!!
Miley Cyrus has the magic brain!!! And Moby enlists a nympho Manson girl-type blonde superfreak to go steel the brain from Cyrus.
She steals the brain from Cyrus while Cyrus is still in bed in a drug-induced coma. Cyrus finally wakes up and is mega-pissed that her BRAIN has been stolen. She enlists a burned-faced Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot ( that are hovering in a nearby spaceship) to hunt down the blond superfreak that stole her brain. They have a relentless pursuit, all the while Cyrus laments the loss of her magic brain and Moby gains powerful rainbows from hell. In the end, the blond superfreak kills Santa and Bigfoot and a baby mole ends up with the brain…”Advertisement
Oh yeah. And the Flaming Lips are disguised as rainbows, mushrooms and flowers watching from the sky room where a giant diamond explosion happens.”
