Michael Stipe Embraces His Inner Lady Gaga in R.E.M.'s 'Alligator Aviator Autopilot Antimatter'

Stipe teams up with Peaches in new video from 'Collapse Into Now'

In director Lance Bangs' video for "Alligator Aviator Autopilot Antimatter," a song from R.E.M.'s new album Collapse Into Now, Michael Stipe dresses up in a series of outlandish costumes, multiplies himself and frolics with electro-pop star Peaches on the streets of Berlin. Out of all the pop stars to run with Lady Gaga's avant garde fashion aesthetic, Stipe is the least obvious and most delightful.
