OK Go Release Another Complicated Music Video

Posted by - 07:34 PM on 02/05/12
Watch OK Go's Super Bowl ad/music video for "Needing/Getting" in the replies.
About the VideoOK 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.

Really really impressive thinking about all the work that went into this/how awesome it is.

But it only makes me love Ok Go, no interest in whatever car that is.

I love OK Go, and they've had really cool videos in the past, but now they're trying way too hard.

they put more effort into a 3 minute music video than Brett Ratner puts into directing a feature length film.
