Overview

Maynard James Keenan, frontman of the metallic art-rock band A Perfect Circle, is a big fan of the deliberately over-the-top internet comedy series Bikini Bandits, so when it came time for the band to make a music video of their song "The Outsider," Keenan got the idea of bringing in Bikini Bandits creator Steven Grasse to direct an episode based around the song. A Perfect Circle's record company, however, was less than enthusiastic with the results, and the version that was distributed to television received a severe re-edit. A Perfect Circle: Lost in the Bermuda Triangle features the complete Bikini Bandits video as originally envisioned by Keenan and Grasse, uncut and uncensored, as well as several other Bikini Bandits frivolity and a preview of Bikini Bandits Save Christmas, featuring a cameo by Keenan as a certain jolly old elf.

    Give me a break!

    Maynard knows exactly what he was getting himself into by recruiting the maker of the Bikini Bandits 'movies' to make his next music videos. All the Tool videos, while directed by Adam Jones, were excellent, and the other APC videos are standouts in their own right. Have you seen the video for 'Weak and Powerless'? It's stunning to say the least. It seems to me that this video is a snuff to political correctness and a jab at the FCC. It's only too bad Virgin toned down the final release. As far as the Bikini Bandits short movies go, they suck. But who cares? Not me.

    What a waste of $$$

    What a waste of money. I was utterly disappointed with this music DVD. I thought it was infantile to say the least. It was Maynard's idea to make this DVD and it must have taken a hell of a lot convincing for the other members of APC to go ahead with this, but the fact that they did go ahead with it shows they are sorely lacking in judgement. They have targeted the lowest common denominator with this one, completely disappointed!
