"The concept for the video is pretty straightforward: Wayne Coyne and I are lost mariachis wandering around downtown L.A. (as evidence that we're lost: we're using a map of the eastern United States). Eventually we find a drunk king and a leather-clad gimp and some rollerskating ghosts, and we all go up to a very tall rooftop and have a disco party with random naked people." – Moby
"I think this picture is pretty self-explanatory: I'm wearing a mariachi costume while standing in an alleyway filled with dead rats, while our leather-clad gimp checks his Twitter feed." – Moby
