Video: The Flaming Lips' "Powerless" Provides Yet Another Eyeful

Please note: Crossfade does not condone blindfolding young women, forcing them to wear noserings and bright orange underwear, and tying their limbs to a lawn chair so that a monkey can sit and watch them struggle.

That said, the Flaming Lips, a band that will be in West Palm Beach on April 29 for SunFest and should be even higher on the bill, combines these elements for the "Powerless" video, another song from last year's masterful Embryonic.

Much less NSFW than their "Watching the Planets" clip, and definitely worth a look. The lighting is fantastic, by the way.
