When Miley Cyrus got sick earlier this year from an allergic reaction to antibiotics the notoriously rebellious 21-year-old star didn’t rest up like your average human – never! Instead, despite her bed-ridden status, Cyrus filmed a totally trippy video from her sick bed with Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne and, well, Moby – whose performance is every bit as weird as you might imagine.
It’s called ‘Blond SuperFreak Steals The Magic Brain’ and was, Wayne Coyne has said, originally intended to be a music video for a song of theirs about LSD – which when you watch it will come as no surprise.
The video’s bizarre mix of musicians tells the incredibly odd, ever so slightly disturbing and completely psychedelic story that Wayne Coyne has described as going 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!!!”
He goes on to explain that Miley Cyrus is in possession of this “magic brain” and Moby summons a “nymph Manson girl-type blonde superfreak” – who we might add is naked throughout – to steal back the brain. The superfreak finds Cyrus passed out from a “drug-induced coma” and upon waking to find the brain gone, completely freaks out and enlists a “burned-face Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot (that are hovering in a nearby spaceship)” to hunt down this evil blonde super freak. All this while the Flaming Lips are “disguised as rainbows, mushrooms and flowers watching from the sky room where a giant diamond explosion happens.”
Great – Thanks Wayne, it makes perfect sense to us now.
