We've been just as captivated by Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips' unlikely friendship as the rest of the world, and we've got our eyes glued to our computer screens now that they've unveiled their first official music video. As you might've imagined, it's unabashedly non compos mentis.

According to Rolling Stone, the video was filmed on Cyrus' sick bed when she was hospitalized for an allergic reaction to an antibiotic. Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne coined the video and its zany story "Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain." The short also boasts a cameo from electronic music pioneer Moby, who is actually the story's villian.

"This is the video we originally intended to be for a song that has a reference to the drug LSD," Coyne told Rolling Stone. "We were lucky enough to get a couple of hours with a bedridden Miley Cyrus. And even though she was still quite ill, she was full of laughs and great absurd suggestions."

Coyne elaborated on the concept, but only left us even more befuddled — but we kind of like it that way.

"The video story is something like this: Moby is an evil, power-hungry cult leader. He wants the world's most valuable (according to our story) psychedelic supernatural possession... John F. Kennedy's brain....the brain contains the original formula for the drug LSD!!!

Miley Cyrus has the magic brain!!! And Moby enlists a nympho Manson girl-type blonde superfreak to go steel the brain from Cyrus.

She steals the brain from Cyrus while Cyrus is still in bed in a drug-induced coma. Cyrus finally wakes up and is mega-pissed that her BRAIN has been stolen. She enlists a burned-faced Santa and a lesbian Bigfoot ( that are hovering in a nearby spaceship) to hunt down the blond superfreak that stole her brain. They have a relentless pursuit, all the while Cyrus laments the loss of her magic brain and Moby gains powerful rainbows from hell. In the end, the blond superfreak kills Santa and Bigfoot and a baby mole ends up with the brain…"
