#PlayTime: Miley Cyrus Appears In Shocking LSD-Themed Flaming Lips Video

08 July 2014 by

In a bit of a work slump right now? Welcome to #PlayTime, Grazia Daily's new music feature bringing you a different hot track every day of the week. From just-dropped music premieres to cool covers and throwback classics, its the new soundtrack to your afternoon.

Err.. so Miley Cyrus has appeared in what could be her most shocking video yet. The singer has a cameo in a new short film from Flaming Lips. The clip called 'Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain' was supposed to be the music video for a track that referenced LSD, but has been released with its own psychedelic soundtrack instead.

Miley co-stars alongside Moby in the clip (we didn't see that coming either). It was shot just after she had that allergic reaction to antibiotics so she was bed-ridden at the time. 

'We were lucky enough to get a couple of hours with a bedridden Miley Cyrus,' says frontman Wayne Bridge. 'And even though she was still quite ill, she was full of laughs and great absurd suggestions.'

She's shown laying in a bed next to a half-empty drug canister holding a neon jelly brain before a naked sparkly blonde lady steals it. Miley's left confused, shouting 'M***** f*****! Where's my f****** brain?!' Yep, it's surreal.

We'll leave  Wayne to explain the rest... 

'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 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.'
