The Not so Final Frontier

It seems like everyone is obsessed with escaping the chains of gravity and sending terrestial objects into the heavens. A Brooklyn father and son team recently sent a balloon toting camera to the literal edge-of -space. Apparently now Aussie indie rockers Tame Impala want in on some of the X-Prize inspired action. Their new vid for “Lucidity” features a similar stunt, though not to quite the same astronomical heights, and a cameo by a friggin’ eagle. Space + Rock + Eagles = Win. It’s a time honored equation. Let’s just hope they don’t turn into OK Go and stop focusing on the music in favor of meme-worthy video stunts.

And in case you’re curious here’s the family Geissbühler’s video from their project. I’m sure this kid is going to clean house at his science fair.
