The Claypool Lennon Delirium: "Bubbles Burst" video

The Claypool Lennon Delirium have made a video for Bubbles Burst, a tribute to Michael Jackson's pet chimpanzee. It's a track from their Monolith of Phobos album. The clip was directed by Les Claypool. Sean Lennon talked to NPR music about how the song came to be:

I met Bubbles at Michael's house. It felt like I was in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory or something going up to that house. There were Model-T Fords driving around and re-creations of old streets. It just felt very surreal and fun. And I think I met [Bubbles] in an arcade. At least I say that in the song. There was a big arcade with video games, and that's where a lot of the people my age liked to hang out. I remember running into Bubbles there. And I'd say we became friends because I wanted to hang out with him a lot. It was just surreal.

Monolith of Phobos is released on ATO Records. Their Summer tour kicks off tonight in Orlando. Beastie Boys' Mark Ramos Nishita and Paul Baldi of the Fungi Band are helping them out on stage.
