Flaming Lips’ Super Bowl Commercial Premieres Online
Are the Flaming Lips ready for their closeup? Singer Wayne Coyne and his mates better be, as this Sunday will see the Lips star in their first-ever Super Bowl commercial, which will be beamed into the living rooms, rec halls and barrooms of a billion people around the globe. The spot, which features the catchy new tune 'Sun Blows Up Today,' captures in epic detail a 'Ferris Bueller'-like day in the life of an ordinary suburban family spent rocking out and hanging out alongside the Lips.
The tune itself first surfaced last week in advance of the Flaming Lips' forthcoming 13th studio album, 'The Terror,' and is available as "an instant grat bonus track" digital download for fans who take advantage of the ‘Terror’ pre-order starting today. Check out the ad below.
