OK GO lead singer Damian Kulash talks about the mathematical logistics of the band’s video for ‘The One Moment’.
The new music video from OK Go, made in partnership with Chevrolet. OK Go set up over 1000 instruments over two miles of desert outside Los Angeles. A Chevy Sonic was outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, and the band recorded this version of Needing/Getting, singing as they played the instrument array with the car. The video took 4 months of preparation and 4 days of shooting and recording. There are no ringers or stand-ins.
Yellow and blue make green.
Says it all.
OK Go and Sesame Street ‘do’ the primary colours.
Thanks Brian at The Giraffe Agency

Last Leaf: the latest release from OK GO’s Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky. The video, directed by the band, Nadeem Mazen and Ali Mohammad and animated by Geoff McFetridge, is comprised entirely of 15 frames-per-second photographs of toast.
So it is.
The one above, however, for All Things Shall Pass, is our all-time favourite. Not just a great tune, but also the best-ever use of a Rube Goldberg machine in pop music.
Behind the scenes extravaganza including nerdy diagrams, cast list, etc, etc here.
