WATCH: Flaming Lips 'sell out' for April Fools Day with 'Funny Or Die'
Listen to The Flaming Lips on iHeartRadio
The Flaming Lips are selling out. Or at least that's what the indie vets said in series of videos they created with "Funny or Die" as part of an elaborate April Fools' Day joke.
In one of the clips, frontman Wayne Coyne tries his best to slick back his hair and sits down with a record exec played by comedian Jon Daly for a meeting about expanding the Flaming Lips brand.
In addition to director Michael Bay's take on a "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" movie, they also talk about Flaming Lips-brand lip balm and a line of e-cigarettes that's just as addictive as the band's music. But all these extra ventures mean Coyne doesn't have time to be the Lips full-time frontman.
