OK Go Needing – Getting – Super Bowl Ad

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.

YouTube Preview Image

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.

Although this is quite an expensive Halloween costume  it is pretty cool to see this working.  Finally a cool use of facetime.

YouTube Preview Image

This costume requires the following:

2 x iPad 2’s

1 wi-fi connection – Either at the party you are attending or using a portable wifi connector from AT&T or Comcast

1 Shirt with bloody hole cut out in front and back

Red Paint or fake blood.

Looks like this could be a lot of fun to play around with.

Have 2 iPhone 4’s and put a hole in your head.

Anne Hathaway Rapping about the Batman Dark Knight Rises Photographers

Since watching all the Batman Dark Night Rises – Filming that is going on around Pittsburgh, I thought this was a funny rap in the Style of Lil’ Wayne.

I know several of the “Normal” photographers out there. I have not seen any of the Paparazzi. But I am just trying to get out of town with all the traffic.

YouTube Preview Image

This Video is Anne Hathaway’s Lil’ Wayne Style Paparazzi Rap as shown on Conan on TBS

Seeing all the streets closed and all of the snow covered roads as I am sweating was quite a weird look and feel. The tumblers look great. I really can’t wait to see this movie next year.

Indy 500 – New world record – Driver Yellow Hot Wheels

This was amazing to watch – But make sure to watch the follow up videos on how they practiced this jump for months before today (May 29th 2011’s) big jump at the Indy 500. The way they made the jump look just like the Hot Wheel Race Track I used to play with as a kid. I think I attempted this same jump from the living room couch many time before. But it never looked this cool. Way to go Tanner Faust – From Top Gear.  Tanner is the Yellow Driver. They have been keeping him under wraps until today. Todays jump was 332 feet – A little over the length of a foot ball field. I like how he described it as flying thru the uprights.

Now Enjoy the videos:

Here is Tanner Faust talking about the practice and leading up tod the jump today.
