DEVO Wants Fans To Whip It, Whip It Good Against Coronavirus

This may be the strangest sentence I write today, and it’s not even noon. Iconic 80s band DEVO have some…interesting items available for fans to battle the novel coronavirus currently sweeping the planet.

Perhaps one of the most recognizable hats in all of music, DEVO’s energy domes are now being reimagined for PPE, which you can order now as individual units or in a kit:

“It was designed according to the ancient ziggurat mound proportions used in votive worship. Like the mounds it collects energy and recirculates it.

In this case the Dome collects energy that escapes from the crown of the human head and pushes it back into the medulla oblongata for increased mental energy.

It’s very important that you acquire a plastic hard hat liner adjusted to your head size and fix it with duct tape or super glue to the inside of the dump. This allows the Dome to float just about the cranium and thus do its job. Unfortunately sans hard hat liner the recirculation of energy will not occur!”

This is seriously awesome, and we can’t wait to get ours.
