Okay......... GO!

Okay.......... GO!

OK Go has a new video out for their song End Love and it's really cool. Here, check it out.

Now if you don't think that's amazing video, I don't know what's wrong with you. It features 18 hours of the band dancing combined with eight full days of LA skyline footage all in various speed settings. According to director Jeff Lieberman:
"The fastest we go is 172,800x, compressing 24 hours of real time into a blazing 1/2 second. The slowest is 1/32x speed, stretching a mere 1/2 second of real time into a whopping 16 seconds. This gives us a fastest to slowest ratio of 5.5 million. If you like averages, the average speed up factor of the band dancing is 270x. In total we shot 18 hours of the band dancing and 192 hours of LA skyline timelapse - over a million frames of video - and compressed it all down to 4 minutes and 30 seconds! Oh and don't forget, it's one continuous camera shot."

"We also made a special friend in the process. Her name is Orange Bill and she's a goose. You will agree that she clearly has a future in music videos."

There other videos have been top notch as well. This Too Will Pass

As you can see, they've moved passed treadmills and I'm loving it. Look, they even got two of my other favorite people involved. Ira Glass and Muppets!
