OK Go's 'The One Moment' music video isn't the first time they blew minds
Leave it to OK Go to add yet another mesmerizing music video to its already impressive, mind-blowing collection.
There are three reasons the indie band's newest video for "The One Moment" has left viewers speechless: It features 325 individual, colorful events; it was captured in just 4.2 seconds (and slowed down to a little over four minutes); and it's a collaboration with, well, salt — Morton Salt to be exact.
In the video, directed by OK Go's frontman Damian Kulash Jr., you'll spot exploding guitars, shattering glass panels and band members soaring through the paint-filled air in slow motion, to name a few over-the-top stunts. But did we really expect anything less from the band?
"We triggered 325 events with extremely precise digital triggers to create the choreography, which unfolds over a little more than four seconds," Kulash said in a press release. "We shot with extremely high-speed cameras, which allows us to stretch those few seconds over the full length of the song. At those moments, we're seeing things move through the air that, in real life, are moving faster than the speed of sound."
Bravo, OK Go. You really outdid yourselves (somehow).
