(Gibson) The Flaming Lips closed Montreal's Osheaga Festival with a bit of wedded bliss. Following a complete performance of the band's 1999 album, The Soft Bulletin, lead singer Wayne Coyne beckoned two fans to the front of the stage, according to Spinner.

A woman dressed as Dorothy (from The Wizard of Oz) and a man dressed as a lion met Coyne, as the rest of the band played a muzak-esque version of "Do You Realize??"

Coyne established the bonds of marriage with grandeur: "By the power of the Flaming Lips, the universe and LSD, I now pronounce you man and wife!" The Lips then performed the real version of "Do You Realize??" before a crowd of thousands. more on this story
