Lemon Pipers

No wonder the late sixties were so weird. Check out the clash of cultures in this 1968 TV clip of the Lemon Pipers. The set is trying to be child-like and surreal, but it just looks creepy (check out the robot). On the other hand, the band is clearly angry about their situation and don't even bother to sync with the sound track. And as they continue to poke the teddy bear their anger turns into something more menacing. Their gnomic bit at the end is unmasked.
