The Flaming Lips’s video for “The Sparrow Looks Up at the Machine” works nicely alongside the “Watching The Planets” and “Powerless” clips. It has elements of bondage and torture (and, monkeys) like the latter, and a giant (though now fur-covered) vagina like the former. There’s no nudity in this clip, though the main subject’s duct taped breasts are barely covered. The clip was directed by Wayne Coyne and Flaming Lips graphics/video guy George Salisbury, who are creating some sort of loose narrative here, so there are probably more Embryonic videos in the works.

  1. razor blades are sexy.

  2. She going to need a tetanus shot, what with being out in the woods, plus I don’t like the looks of that monkey.

  3. Love the Lips but I only wish they could have made videos like this for some older songs.

  4. What does it mean?
