On Monday, iconic rock band The Flaming Lips held a concert in Oklahoma City where everyone — audience and performers included — was sealed in their own plastic bubble.
It’s definitely unusual and seems like the kind of thing that would give me even less of an idea of what to do with my arms during a show. But as NME reports, the bubbles are a creative way to hold a concert during the COVID-19 pandemic without putting everyone there in serious danger. We’re looking at you, Chainsmokers.
Just watch as lead singer Wayne Coyne serenades a crowd of bubbled audience members who sometimes try to dance but largely seem confused — while doing the closest approximation of a crowd surf available to him.
