A Perfect Circle's upcoming "Lost In The Bermuda Triangle" DVD, due in stores May 4, will include an extended and unedited version of the band's "The Outsider" video plus bonus previews for the upcoming Bikini Bandits feature films "The Golden Rod" and "Bikini Bandits Save Christmas".

Co-directed by Steven Grasse of the famed Bikini Bandits films and web series, and Mark Kohr (No Doubt, Alanis Morissette, Primus), "The Outsider" video starring the Bikini Bandits lampoons the corporatization of America as well as the growing clampdown on free speech (check out the animated finale where executives at the so-called Vagina Records express dismay over the video).

"The Outsider" video follows the Bikini Bandits, a menacing gang of four bikini-clad girls who get paroled from jail, wreak havoc in complacent suburbia and raid a convenience store owned by the fictitious corporate conglomerate G-Mart, before winding up back in the slammer. A Perfect Circle have a history with the Bikini Bandits. The band has provided music for their films and vocalist Maynard James Keenan played "Satan" in "The Bikini Bandits Experience". Maynard also voiced "Father Christmas" in the upcoming animated film "Bikini Bandits Save Christmas".

    Sorry to resurrect this old topic. If this was to protest the corporatism of America, there would have been much better way to do it than selling their song the same way corporation sell their products - be they openly portraying sex or covertly. Also the portrayal of these women were done in way women were always exploited - as sex objects. And for a woman to put herself into situation that can get violent in bikini is plain idiotic - expose the most sensitive parts of your body is simply nothing but dumb...oh hold on, their actions themselves were dumb.... ass, tits, and dumb...yeah, that's what women are ideally, right? Needless to say, what a disappointment.

    Talk about Hypocrisy. I thought APC (& Tool) was anti-marketing, anti-stereotyping, intelligent and worth time. Not like I?m spiritually connected to any of their music, but ?The Stranger? video had NOTHING to do with the words of that song, at least in my opinion it didn?t. It seemed like the video appealed to the asinine jock college crowd, way to market the multiples of stupid people APC! Way to go! Sorry guys lost respect in your vision big time. REMEMBER folks, opinions are like *******s, everyone has one

    APC are ***in awesome. i'm kinda disappointed with the video though. i ahve nothing against lampooning the corporisation of america. i just thought it had nothing to do with the song. theyre completely different subjects. it's a good video but it would have been better for a different song

    I DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE VIDEO. I'M JUST GLAD THAT THEY'RE FINALLY COMING OUT WITH A DVD. ANOTHER "MUST HAVE" ADDED TO MY COLLECTION. BESIDES, I'M SURE THEY REALIZE WHAT KIND OF VIDEO THEY PUT OUT. YOU CAN'T PLEASE EVERYONE!

    Its an ok video, im glad APC did what they wanted....I was never to big on videos where the song is more of a backround to the story in the video, like i dont like hearing the people in the video talk and whatnot....but its a cool idea and thing that theyre doing. Much music plays teh video a lot.

    But come on, that video doesn't suit the song... AT ALL. I was very disappointed when I saw that video. Of course, I'm never one to complain about abundant tits and ass.

    most videos don't fit the songs so stop saying it didn't fit cause most don't.

    All you guys must be a bunch of homos. It was truly a great video for a great song.
    sithian476
    you can never quite understand APC fully. im sure there was a reason for their choice of video lol
    xdopsx
    wait wait...are you guys missing the central point of the video? NO, the video ISN'T "perfact for MTV" because it's whole premise is lampooning the corporatization of america and the censoring of free speech. MTV is part of the "corporate america" that is being mocked. also, the reason why it is so "gay-looking" is because that is the way that they wish to get your attention to the issue...
    be-back
    It was fuking stupid video like blink-182, it was perfact for MTV though
    lucid_sounds
    wtf, thats so damn gay. apc is one of the best bands out their right now. i dont understand why they would make such a gay video for such a good song.....
    Jason_877
    Ya the video didn't really fit the song, BUT on the other hand it sure was an enjoyable video. Hell of a guy to do the voice of Father Christmas..ha..

    It's because Maynard ***ing wanted it, you dumbshits. I have to commend them for doing what they wanted to do instead of listening to the "rock" public and making a typical "rock" video. Jesus.

    What the f*ck is "Bikini Bandits Experience" and why did they scrwed up such a good song with that crappy video... it remainds me of all those rap videos out there with the girls with the big boobs and nice ass just...

    I hope some of this stuff about Bikini Bandits is a charade, otherwise the irony is too overwhelming for Maynard not to notice. All of their videos and all of Tool's bare no resemblence to this video, and whether or not it is a superbly subtle kick at selling-out and marketing, I doubt most people will draw that much from it and just feel disappointed. I guess I'm resurrecting this old topic because I just saw the video like a month ago and it disappointed me. I thought maybe it was one of those things where Maynard got pushed out of the final decision and it was made against his wishes, but he endorsed it. Meh. Like the first poster, I'm all about titties and ass but APC and Tool are supposed to take me to a higher place.
