Video: The Flaming Lips- She Don't Use Jelly
Say what you will about the facelessness of mid 90s alt rock, but wasting an afternoon watching MTV (or watching Beavis and Butthead watch MTV videos) was always a good time. There's a quality to these sort of videos that was by turns surreal and apathetic, as if they were thrown together at the last minute, fueled by hangovers or afternoon bong hits.
Ironic, then, that a Flaming Lips video from this era would be so relatively normal. I mean, the strangest thing about it is Wayne Coyne, who--red/orange hair or not--looks 25 years younger than he does nowadays.
