Flaming Lips Get Digested For 'SpongeBob' Video

Published: 2004-11-08
Known for their child-like spirits, Oklahoma's The Flaming Lips are a perfect fit for the upcoming 'The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie' soundtrack. The four-piece penned a song specifically for the kid's movie, which is lengthily titled 'SpongeBob & Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy'. The song, which lives amidst Avril Lavigne and Shins tracks on the soundtrack, has been chosen as the first single to come off the album.

The Grammy Award winning alt-rockers recently completed filming the video for 'SpongeBob & Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy', and it promises to be an instant classic. Filmed in Austin, Texas with producer George Sledge at the helm, the video features a set that could rival any theme park in the world.

Lips singer Wayne Coyne and bandmates will be seen dressed as different pieces of food, hanging out in a giant salivating mouth. If for some reason that doesn't tickle your fancy, the video also makes use of a pirate ship and a liberal amount of pink foam. The giant plastic bubble that Coyne has famously performed live in also makes an appearance in 'SpongeBob & Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy'.

Action Figure, the company responsible for the new Flaming Lips video, recently put the finishing touches on the video. After a final edit by Ariel Quintans, 'SpongeBob & Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy' will be ready to air in early December. Expected to be one of the most amusing videos of 2004, the video will surely get the attention and airtime it deserves. In addition to the Lips' music video, a 'making of' can be seen on Nickelodeon, home of SpongeBob.

One of the most highly anticipated soundtracks to be hitting the stores this fall, 'The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie' soundtrack will be available for purchase by young and old alike tomorrow (November 9th). The actual 'SpongeBob' film will hit theatres across the continent on November 19th.

Although it hasn't been officially released yet, footage from the 'SpongeBob & Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy' video can be found with some simple searching on the internet. But you didn't hear it from us.
