Michael Stipe Gets Pushed Upstairs in R.E.M.'s Strange New Video For 'Mine Smell Like Honey'

Limp singer literally gets moved up a flight of stairs like a human couch

"Mine Smell Like Honey," the first music video from R.E.M.'s forthcoming album Collapse Into Now, is focused, simple and exceedingly strange. Over the course of three minutes, director Dominic DeJoseph documents a stunt in which a group of people push a limp, bearded Michael Stipe up a flight of stairs at Berlin's Hansa Studio as if he was a couch being moved into an apartment building.
