The teaser ad for this full length video made me look for it. This has to be one of the best music videos and commercials for the Super Bowl. I usually watch the Super Bowl for the ads.
A lot went into making this video – Watch it first and see all the events that went into making this.
There was 55 Piano’s, too many guitars and over 1,100 various musical instruments to make up this video. I really is amazing how OK Go get to do all this. I love their creativity and salute them. I hope the keep this up.
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.
