OK Go explains the incredible math behind their "The One Moment" music video

As brilliant as OK Go's "The One Moment" music video is from their Hungry Ghosts album, the math that went behind it is even more genius. Using spreadsheets and an incredible amount of math, you'll see why this meticulous and gorgeous video took years to make. If you haven't yet seen the "The One Moment" music video, you should watch it first (below) before seeing how it all added up.

Obsession: A lot of trees died for OK Go's new music video

OK Go is known for their complicated, flashy music videos, so when the quirky four-man band launched "Obsession" Thursday, the internet took notice. With over a million views already, the video is an impressive visual feast that uses walls of printers (567 of them to be exact) spitting out sheets of paper as its backdrop.

It comes with a warning though. The band writes:

This video has a lot of flashing colors. If you’re susceptible to seizures, be careful, please. Your viewing experience will look significantly better if you manually set your YouTube resolution settings to 1440p or 2160p (for desktop, click the gear icon in the lower right). Just leaving it on “Auto HD” results in some pretty intense distortion during a few sections, because when the the colors and patterns get crazy, there’s actually just too much information flying by for YouTube’s normal HD compression. We broke the matrix. The good people of YouTube have been working with us to solve this (it’s a bit rate limitation issue) over the last 24 hours, but there’s no quick fix, and now it’s Thanksgiving in the US, and we’re all with our families.

The song is from their new album, Hungry Ghosts.

And yes, a lot of trees died in the making of this video but, calm down, the band has already recycled the paper and given the proceeds to Greenpeace. Read the rest

OK Go - Upside Down & Inside Out

Hello, Dear Ones. Please enjoy our new video for "Upside Down & Inside Out". A million thanks to S7 Airlines. #GravitysJustAHabit

Posted by OK Go on Thursday, February 11, 2016

It's interesting that OK Go released "Upside Down & Inside Out" on Facebook instead of YouTube.

The masters of meticulously choreographed music videos, OK Go, just released their latest: a three-minute clip for their new single Upside Down & Inside Out shot entirely in zero gravity. The video was filmed aboard a reduced gravity aircraft at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center near Moscow over a period of three weeks. It’s being billed around the web as the ‘first music video shot entirely in zero gravity,’ but to be fair, I think astronaut Chris Hadfield beat them to it with his rendition of Bowie’s Space Oddity filmed on the ISS in 2013.
