The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and solo performer Moby have dressed up as a Mexican mariachi band for their "freaky" new video.

Moby shared a picture from the video, above, on his Facebook page earlier today (August 12). It was taken towards the end of Saturday's downtown LA video shoot.

The soon-to-be-released video is for Moby's track 'The Perfect Life', which features Coyne. It will appear on the electro artist's forthcoming album 'Innocents', which is set for release on October 1.

Before Coyne and Moby got to work on the video, Moby made a casting call on his website asking for some unusual extras. On the wish list were an "S&M gimp rhythmic gymnast", "eight rollerskating ghosts", "12 goth choir members", "two obese bearded bikers in red speedos", "a punk rock brass brand" and "a drunk king: guy with beard age 35-50".

Moby and Coyne also called out for "20 random party goers who are comfortable with nudity" for scenes involving "freaky fun". "[Being] comfortable with nudity is the main requirement here," Moby stressed.
