The fun video opens with comedian and accomplished musician Fred Armisen welcoming viewers back to some fictional television show and introducing the band’s as if they were the musical guest. The video then transitions to images of hooded bandmembers swaying back and forth amongst endless strings of colored lights and transparent balls like possessed monks on an LSD trip as the music begins to play.
Singer Wayne Coyne finally makes his grand appearance about 1:20 minutes into the clip, where he’s seen in an all-white suit in front of a rainbow and the sparkling lights. The video continues to move back and forth between shots of the band and Coyne.
