Miley Cyrus did a lot more than make questionable online purchases while she was bedridden with a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics, it seems. While she was laid up this spring, she also made the weirdest, most NSFW video we’ve ever seen with Wayne Coyne and The Flaming Lips. (That’s the most wholly unsurprising sentence ever, huh?)
The video, featuring Moby (because why not?), is called “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain” and according to Coyne, was “originally intended to be for a song that has a reference to the drug LSD … 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 and Cyrus recently became BFFS, with The Lips appearing on stage several times during the “Wrecking Ball” singer’s Bangerz Tour and the duo getting matching tattoos of Cyrus’ dearly departed pup, Floyd, this past weekend.
Their latest pal-up is about as bizarre — and NSFW — as their tattoo adventure over the holiday. Coyne described it to Rolling Stone thusly:
“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 [sic] 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.”
Sounds about right. Ready to watch now?
We repeat: This video is very NSFW. You’ve been warned, cubicle jockeys.
