OK Go – The Writing’s On the Wall

Another absolutely delightful video from OK Go. Optical illusions abound and the smooth, melodic 80s pop provides us with one of their best singles to date. A music video is what got me listening to OK Go (I saw “Get Over It” one night on MTV my freshman year of college and fell immediately in love), and I’m glad to see them so perfectly marry sound and vision time and time again.

the water glasses are particularly impressive

OK Go has always had a knack for making entertaining videos. The band garnered worldwide success with its infamous treadmill routine, and its latest offering is no exception. Featuring the largest and most joy-inducing Rube Goldberg machine I’ve ever seen, the second iteration of “This Too Shall Pass” merits several viewings. Check it out below, along with some of their other hits.

“This Too Shall Pass – RGM Version”

“Here It Goes Again”

“A Million Ways”

“Get Over It”
