Watch Sock Puppets Sing Mike Shinoda’s ‘Ghosts’ in New Video

“Boris & Miss Oatmeal” lip sync to Linkin Park rocker’s latest ‘Post Traumatic’ track

Mike Shinoda recruits a pair of sock puppets to deliver his latest single in the Linkin Park rocker’s new video for “Ghosts.”

The video, produced and directed by Shinoda, is a DIY affair as “Boris & Miss Oatmeal,” the two sock puppets with drawn-on eyes and mouth, lip sync to Shinoda’s double-tracked vocals.

“And when the lights go down / Is there something in the air / There but never there / The lights go down / Holding every memory close / Tonight is for our ghosts,” Shinoda, via the socks, sings.

“Ghosts” is the latest single off Shinoda’s upcoming solo album Post Traumatic, due out June 15th, following “Crossing a Line,” “About You” and “Running From My Shadow.” The LP, like the introductory three-song EP of the same name, finds Shinoda wrestling with the grief following the death of Chester Bennington as well as his journey toward healing.

“It’s a journey out of grief and darkness, not into grief and darkness,” Shinoda previously said of Post Traumatic in a statement. “If people have been through something similar, I hope they feel less alone. If they haven’t been through this, I hope they feel grateful.”
