It's unclear whether The Flaming Lips are using jelly -- or vaseline, for that matter -- at their concerts these days. The rock band is, however, trying plastic bubbles.

The rock musicians from Oklahoma City are literally blowing up in 2020, using inflatable human-sized bubbles to defend themselves and fans against Covid-19 while finding a way to play live.

Performing at The Criterion in their hometown on Monday evening, The Flaming Lips placed themselves -- and all attending fans -- inside individual plastic spheres. The concert -- which was part live show, part music video shoot -- was born out of a sketch doodled by Wayne Coyne during the pandemic's early days, the frontman told CNN.
