Published Nov 18, 2008After years of delays, the Flaming Lips finally made good on their promise and last week put out their long-awaited film Christmas on Mars. And to celebrate, the fearless freaks are now giving fans a chance to scoop up a load of special add-on features.
Right now, at the bands website you can order the "mega deluxe Christmas on Mars, which includes brace yourself the DVD, the CD soundtrack, a T-shirt, a collectible Christmas on Mars movie ticket, trading card set, an "Eat Your Own Spaceship sticker and a box of popcorn.
Whats more, the Lips have crafted their very own Christmas on Mars videogame, which can be played here. In it, you get a chance to shoot down a pile of Wayne Coyne Martian heads before they reach you and snap up one of your three lives (symbolized by the bands Steven Drozd dressed in a Santa hat). But be warned, this sucker is hard and may leave you cursing the floating, disembodied Waynes and your less than lightning-fast trigger finger.
