In the odd and wild days of 2020, potentially almost nothing could be a lot more fitting for Christmas 7 days than The Flaming Lips releasing a movie for their 17-calendar year-outdated primary holiday tune AND loaning Santa Claus a Room Bubble so he can go to community hospitalized children.
The Oklahoma Town-based artwork-rockers have debuted a newly filmed video for “A Alter at Xmas (Say It Isn’t So),” featuring frontman Wayne Coyne’s cute tow-headed toddler. The Grammy-winning band at first released the music as the closing track of the 2003 EP “Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell.”
On Instagram, Coyne said that the online video started out as a “just a selfie phone video that I was attempting to do with Little one Bloom and I..well.. it stored finding far more and much more elaborate and now it is turned into a complete fledged re-make” showcasing his longtime bandmates Steven Drozd and Michael Ivins.
The new movie features Coyne dressed in entire inexperienced encounter make-up and an elaborate crown on an inflatable throne keeping his son, who is decked out in a kind of alien snowman costume. In usual toddler manner, the kid seems more interested in the paper confetti “snow” that the equally built-up Ivins is showering on him – and that Coyne laughingly keeps plucking out of his possess mouth although singing – than in everything else. I’ll wager this kid has a good time enjoying with the wrapping paper and bins on Christmas morning.
As beforehand documented, the Lips released the acclaimed superior-idea album “American Head” and experimented with Coyne’s signature House Bubbles throughout the bizarre pandemic days of 2020. The band’s widely expected initial official House Bubble concerts in their hometown of OKC have been originally booked for this thirty day period at The Criterion but postponed to January due to mounting COVID-19 numbers.
But that didn’t halt the Lips from placing at the very least 1 of the bubbles to great use this week: Coyne touchingly documented on Instagram accompanying Santa Claus himself to The Children’s Healthcare facility at OU Medication and loaning St. Nick a Room Bubble so the jolly ol’ elf could make the rounds traveling to the younger sufferers at the downtown OKC healthcare facility.
Content holiday seasons, y’all.
