Video of the Day

Ok Go's new video.

A lot is to be expected from a new video by this group. Every one has to be a spectacle, and I have not seen one of their videos yet that I haven't been impressed by. This new one continues that streak.

Here's the description: "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; Damian took stunt driving lessons. Each piano had the lowest octaves tuned to the same note so that they'd play the right note no matter where they were struck."


I may be loosing interest in their music as each CD seems to be worse than the previous (I still absolutely love their debut album), but their singles are usually always catchy, and the videos just flat-out kick ass.
