*stares* WTF did we just watch?
First, they unveiled matching tattoos and now, the band has unleashed a super trippy, effed up video for “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain”, which stars none other than MC. Moby’s in there, too, but let’s be honest, no one’s paying attention to him at this point.
Following her hospitalization due to an allergic reaction to an antibiotic, the 21-year-old was bedridden, but rather than resting, she decided to squeeze some work in and agreed to be the star of this utterly confusing video.
Terrible track aside, the acting is beyond awkward and even the usually charismatic Miley seems down and out (which is understandable, seeing as she wasn’t feeling 100%). We’d perhaps appreciate this video's wackiness had it been filmed by Frank Zappa, but they ain’t Zappa and we want our five minutes back.
In case you want to brace yourself for what's about to come, frontman Wayne Coyne explained the concept to Rolling Stone as follows: "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…
Oh yeah. And the Flaming Lips are disguised as rainbows, mushrooms and flowers watching from the sky room where a giant diamond explosion happens."
