Everyone, prepare yourselves for the weirdest thing you’ve seen (or will see) today — or maybe ever. This week, the Flaming Lips released a short film they shot with Miley Cyrus about LSD, and we are at a loss for words.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne says that the video, called “Blonde Superfreak Steals The Magic Brain,” was originally intended to be a music video but ended up spawning into a nearly six minute foray into the experience of an LSD user starring Miley and Moby.
In the video, we see a bedridden Miley Cyrus holding a pink and purple substance (we’re guessing this is the magic brain we heard about), foaming at the mouth beside an open bottle of pills. What happens after that? Totally beyond our scope of understanding.
As Wayne explains it, the brain actually belongs to the late JFK and contains the original formula for LSD, and Moby hires someone to steal it from her… and when Miley wakes up from her “drug-induced coma,” she’s not pleased to find the brain is gone.
“She enlists a burned-face Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot (that are hovering in a nearby spaceship) to hunt down the blonde superfreak who stole her brain,” Wayne says. “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 blonde superfreak kills Santa and Bigfoot and a baby mole ends up with the brain.”
And we’ll let you interpret the rest of the video from there.
