Black Lips Motorboat Puppets in ‘Funny’ Video
Atlanta punks head to the Bob Baker Marionette Theatre for 'Underneath the Rainbow' single
Last week, Black Lips grabbed our attention with their cover of T-Rex’s “Gong,” featuring none other than the Karma Chameleon himself, Boy George. Now, the flower-punks from Atlanta pull us in again with the far-out but oddly adorable video for “Funny,” via MTVu. Cole Alexander and co. find themselves at Los Angeles’ Bob Baker Marionette Theater, digging into the fuzzy, drone-kissed track from their seventh LP Underneath the Rainbow. Harlequins, puppets, and other possible hallucinations dance the night away, with Alexander, who at times wears a potato sack for a shirt. At one point, he motorboats a doll. So it’s definitely a shift from their Kimye-influenced clip for “Nightmare Field,” but, we really weren’t expecting anything less. Especially after that super NSFW “Boys in the Wood” video.
