Over the last few years I have got more familiar with a quirky band called OK Go who make some of the most inventively crazy music videos you'll ever see (this one, this one and, for dog lovers, this one are particular favourites). For their latest to the song Needing/Getting from their album Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, they have (with the help of Chevrolet) really surpassed themselves, and I would love to try it!
OK Go's blurb:
The new music video from OK Go, made in partnership with Chevrolet. 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. For more information and behind-the-scenes footage, see http://www.LetsDoThis.com and http://www.okgo.net. Many thanks to Chevy for believing in and supporting such an insane and ambitious project, and to Gretsch for providing the guitars and amps.
