OK Go

“The 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; 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 realize no one else might agree with me, but I think this was an awesome piece of crap. Didn’t make it to the end.

    Don’t we all, Claudia. But for me, Obamamobiles are as political as it gets any more.

    Sweet. Nothing at all about someone trying to control what they think I need or what I should be allowed to purchase or what I have to eat or denying me pain or other medication. Freedom to do something silly just because you want to is ok with me. However, I wont be downloading the song from iTunes.

    I’ll tell you what’s missing. At the end of that run there should be dispenser of free condoms. You’ve got to make a love after that “awesome” concert.
    What a horseshit, taxpayers money are buying.
