Amanda Palmer, who replaced Erykah Badu in The Flaming Lips‘ NSFW video for “The First Time I Saw Your Face,” has collaborated again with Wayne Coyne, who co-directed her video for “Do It With A Rockstar”. The highly amusing (and highly NSFW) video starts with a bunch of drag queens and then hipsters dissing Palmer, before they go to her raucous show and everything gets rather wild. “Do It With A Rockstar” comes from Amanda Palmer’s Kickstarter funded Theatre Is Evil album. You can watch the video, and read what Amanda Palmer had to say about its creation below.
This massive chaos-fest of a video was co-created and directed by Wayne Coyne, Amanda Palmer, George Salisbury, and Michael McQuilken. Everybody did shit, art happened! It was filmed over two 105-degree days in Oklahoma City in the summer of 2012, in five locations: Kamps, The Conservatory, The Boom, Wayne’s house, and The Colcord Hotel. Massive thanks to the awesome video extras of Oklahoma City (and many lands beyond!) who gave their time shouting, dancing, getting glittered, and giving us their beautiful faces. YOU ARE AMAZING…OKLAHOMA CITY FTW!!!!! And an extra special thank you to Wayne Coyne for opening up his house, his crew, his brain, and his extra boxes of gold glitter to our band of freaks. ROCK.
