"We shot it on 35 millimeter". Well, that was a mistake. It should have been shot in 16mm for proper verisimilitude.


#3

I'm thankful for the flying saucers.


#4

Maybe after a few years in Hamburg...


#5

looks like it's pretty nice being Sean Lennon.


#6

Well, other than the whole dad thing.


#7

sadly, everyone's dad dies some day.


#8

Somewhat surprised they didn't go with Red or some other digital format.


#9

Heh, yeah, shoot it at 4k 48fps then process the hell out of it to make it look 16mm 24fps.

Somewhere out there, someone's already done it, I'm sure.


#10

Not sure my son would agree. The sadly part I mean.


#11

They opened for the Lips and Tame Impala earlier this year at Terminal 5 in NYC…excellent show, and a bonus appearance by Yoko, who was carefully guided through the Lips' stage props by Wayne and Sean.


#12

Be as snarky as you wanna be, I like it.


#13

Oh look—there's John Perry Barlow!
In his element.


#14

Ooo, it's zoomed right up to number two on my chart of top neo-cult-o-phile video hits, above James Franco's love letter to Kenneth Anger, and just below Cults' Go Outside.

Loved this!

Say a prayer for the internet billionaire! Messages from Jesus in the grease of the grill cheese!

Brilliant. Hilarious. Right on time.


#16

I like the song. I guess if anyone should be allowed to channel his dad, it is probably him. Weird fun, it's probably best I'm not so much into the acid anymore.

The naked seemed a bit egregious, not that I'm complaining.


#17

Absolutely loved every second of the vid!

Esoteric cults, crystals, psychedelia, animal masks, nudity, pyramids, flying saucers...

L-O-V-E-D IT!


#18

Anyone out there who has listened to more: Is this song fairly representative of GOASTT, or an aberrant gem? I liked it, but I'm a little nervous about exposing myself to more for fear of retroactively disliking it (or finding out that it was really the video I liked, not so much the song).


#19

I must be the only one who thinks this is crap. It's a terrible, unoriginal and humorless rehashing of his father's "brand." A visual brand and language that was dead and gone long before John was. And while the above commenters seem a-ok with the female nudity in this video, I'm curious as to what percentage of you would frown upon Robin Thicke's shenanigans. Just awful.


#20

Obviously no one can tell anyone what they like, but I do strongly disagree with "humorless."

As for Robin Thicke, I think it was more the content of the song (and possibly his character) than the breasts in the video that created the problem. I don't think frequenters of these boards are strongly representative of the portion of the population who discount any creation that features nudity.
