Kasabian make strange silent film spoofing 'The Artist' Kasabian Tickets

Ben Kealey and Serge Pizzorno are currently on the road in the United States

Video: Kasabian's Silent Movie - 'Telepathic Shenanigans'

Kasabian have made a short, largely silent film, based loosely on the Oscar winning movie The Artist.

Casting themselves as Bingo Bob and Sonny Swamprat, Serge Pizzorno and keyboard player Ben Kealey appear in the odd clip, called Telepathic Shananigans [sic], which you can see above.

The strange black and white film sees them dancing and joking to a jazzy 1920s soundtrack in what appears to be a hotel lobby. The band are currently on the road in the US, ahead of shows at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this weekend and next.

Tom Meighan recently revealed that he wants his band to keep reinventing themselves in a similar fashion to Radiohead. In an interview with Buzzinemusic.com, the frontman said he was eager for the band to constantly develop their sound with each new album, and hailed Thom Yorke and co as his role models for continued experimentation.

Last month, Kasabian unveiled the new video for their track 'Neon Noon'. The promo was shot by Serge Pizzorno at home, using only the songwriter's mobile phone and four mirrors. Pizzorno also revealed that he been inspired to shoot the video after seeing "psychedelic images" projected by his son Ennio's night light.

Kasabian will headline both Reading And Leeds Festivals and T In The Park this summer and are also confirmed to play shows as part of Ibiza and Majorca Rocks.
