    The Flaming Lips Tested Out A "Plastic Bubble" Concert And I Truly Can't Believe This Is Where We're Currently At

    Seems sweaty.

    We've seen our fair share of pods and bubbles, some clearly better than others, in the past few months.

    There were the nice in concept I suppose "social distancing gym pods."

    The ambitious but weird "dining bubbles."

    And my personal favorite, the concert corrals, which legit seemed great.

    But we've finally gone into batshit territory.

    The Flaming Lips invited 100 or so of their fans to test out a space bubble concert concept at the Criterion in Oklahoma City.

    Yup, space bubbles.

    The band originally tested the concept on The Late Show in May.

    And according to EW, the lead singer, Wayne Coyne, has been putting himself in plastic balls for a decade or so.

    That's him on Earth Day in 2009. A plastic ball pioneer!

    This particular plastic bubble concert was apparently part live show and part music video and is seen by the band as a success.

    Coyne told CNN, "We, as the Flaming Lips, we like the idea that we are doing something different. ... I think it could be cool. It could be fun. And we could all have a, you know, a crazy unique experience."
