Comedians Noel and Mike Fielding (the brothers who play Vince Noir and Babu on the British comedy classic The Mighty Boosh) have teamed up with The Claypool Lennon Delirium for the band’s new video for ‘Bubbles Burst.’ The Claypool Lennon Delirium (the collaboration of Les Claypool and Sean Lennon) release their new album The Monolith of Phobos today (read my investigation into the weird moon rock from which the album takes its title). In the video (watch below), Noel portrays Michael Jackson and Mike plays the King of Pop’s infamous pet chimpanzee, Bubbles.

The Fieldings’ surrealist sensibilities are a perfect match for kindred spirits Lennon and Claypool – but the quirky video can’t hide the fact that the song is a sluggish, dreary slog.
