The robotic backing vocals in "Programmed to obey" and "Behold my transformation" sound so great in this, Fantastic track.

Pinnochio, because the handler can turn real boys into puppets. And Alice, don't know, probably for the mushrooms.

I think it's meant to represent the corruption of innocence and youths (?)
Perhaps along the lines of "brainwashing our children to be mean" kind of thing

Definitely mushrooms. Mushrooms are the answer to everything.

There is a connection with the Reapers video, where there are mushrooms, too. Maybe in all the videos the mushrooms are present and is like an easter egg, i should check Mercy in case is true.

Well played, Muse, well played.

This, sounds amazing. Best use of it since MK Ultra.

Alice in Wonderland (and Wizard of Oz) are the two most common pieces of entertainment thought to have been used in "sleeper" brainwashing cases (when someone is programmed, but subconsciously; they live a normal life, but when they hear a "trigger" phrase, the brainwashing kicks in, and they fulfill their mission.)
So, phrases from movies, books, songs, etc were believed to have subliminal messages, and were used for these triggers.
Those two, again, are the most known ones.

One such sleeper brainwashing project was also called Project Monarch, thus all the butterflies in the video.

Pinnocio was just for the "puppet" metaphor.

And the Disney stuff because, well, all that Disney shit was supposed to be evil and subliminal, wasn't it?

Maybe... but Stockholm Syndrome has a similarly meh solo and it's still my (and probably a few other people's) vote for best/favourite Muse song by a mile. And I'm not that bothered by the solo in the Handler, I still think the whole thing works really well.

I don't see it as a solo... it's more like a bridge and it builds up perfectly to the outro
