flaminglips-watching-video1.jpg

Passing through these photos of the Flaming Lips’ naked-bicyclist video shoot confirmed that yes, Wayne wasn’t playing coy — he wanted to videotape young things who knew how to ride bikes and also were comfortable being framed in perpetuity as naked sylvan nymphs in a Flaming Lips video. But those pics didn’t suggest the biggest revelation, that being the big reveal of Wayne’s coyne. Yep he gets naked, just like the rest. “Killing the ego” indeed. (Or, inflating it. Depending on your angle. And his.) If you’ve seen the Lips during this summer or beyond, when they’ve been playing new stuff, you likely remember their stage entrance through those psychedelically undulating vaginal lips. Well those make an appearance too, in spirit, and Wayne takes a terrible old Truly Tasteless Joke — you spend nine months of your life trying to get out, and the rest of your life trying to get back in — to its illogical extreme.

Sorry Sigur Rós and Girls, you lose.

    Well, Wayne Coyne’s penis wasn’t on my list of things I wanted to see today, but the prospect of hippie boobage was too good to pass up.

    incidentally, seeing Wayne’s penis was on my list of things to see today. check.

  3. I hope someone on the film crew brought along a crate of sanitary wipes for all those bicycle seats. @-@

    Seeing Wayne’s penis was on my bucket list. Check. I can die a happy man.

    Well, after seeing so many NSFW music videos lately, I am starting to feel as though I am rather well endowed. I never knew that before, really. I guess I had seen porn videos, and figured I was average at best, but now I think I am huge. Maybe I ought to think about porn.

      Haha I was about to come on here and write that same exact thing. That’s exactly the root of porn having a negative effect on people too, because in this case, the guys hired for them are obviously hired because they’re freakishly endowed. and that makes you and your still-well-endowed-package feel like you’re just average at best. Thank goodness for music videos featuring naked white indie guys with confidence and no shame , tho.

      • You need to look at the women of pr0n too. Most are super petite munchkins that I could fit in my back pocket. A baby gherkin would look huge is comparison.

          Yup and add to that they’re massive fake breasts unproportionately attached to their tiny clavicles and its no wonder so many people feel inadequate about their physical appearances. Luckily, this video celebrates the true form of the human body without the fantasy expectations and standards we’re used to seeing.

      …Also gotta play devil’s advocate here too. Just because the endowment length of these guys’ flaccid penises in this vid or the Sigur Ros one may look smaller than yours, it doesn’t mean they’re not “growers” (hence the age old question: “grower” or “shower?”)

    I liked that they saved the chubby chick for the end. that was the best part.

    My friend took place in this shoot, but she is nowhere to be seen in the video. Damn.

    yo where all the brothas and sistahs at? all these folk is white.

  10. Ahh I saw this a few weeks ago at their secret show thus making me uncool now that it’s out to the public.

  11. I wish there were more diversity rather than white, young, and hip. perhaps that was all they could find, but it was quite obviously unintegrated. uncharacteristic of the Flaming Lips, i would think.

    Don’t we ALL miss Bitches Brew?

    Would of been 10 times funnier if the guy was english or Chris Farley…The laws of comedy…

  14. Anon  |   Posted on Nov 11th, 2009 0

    Those who are complaining about the lack of diversity have never been to Portland, Or- where the video was filmed.

  15. i swear i commented on this earlier…ah well, twas a passing fancy:)

    I know they’re trying to be all “summer of love” here, but you should always wear protective gear when riding a bike.

  17. another anon  |   Posted on Nov 12th, 2009 0

    Yeah, I second that….Portland is the whitest city on earth. Don’t complain about the lack of diversity.

      Also, look at it this way: if you put out a call for people who would like to appear naked in a Flaming Lips video, who do you think would show up?

    Being extra uncool, I was at most of the video shoot so I can clear up a few things:
    1. No crew members sanitzed any bike seats (I put my underwear over mine), those bastards. But they did give us all the tacos we could eat.
    2. The bike riding was all ridiculously slow, so helmets were not very neccessary. The shot where the dude stands up (which may or may not be me) of the bike is cause it was so slow to allow for the van (being drive by Wayne) to backup
    3. All the nakeys were volunteers through bikeportland.org – so not exactly the most diverse group of people. There were no auditions, exclusions or (as far as I know) casting calls. I thought the same thing about all white people when I was there (being blinded by non-tanned skin)
    4. About half of the video was shot on Gus Van Sant’s land. And he was there. With an axe. And he saw my balls. Living the dream.
    5. The shot where the ball falls to the ground was real and unintentional. It was pretty amusing to watch though.

    I’ll be the first to discuss the song! It is not nearly as memorable as the nudity.

    Pardon me fellas, but I must have gotten lost and stumbled onto the All Natural Male Enhancement discussion board. Which way do I go to get to the music discussion?

  21. If I wanted to see this I could just move back to Vermont.
