    Don’t you just love “globalization”? “This video contains content from EMI. It is no longer available in your country.” Yay! #lawsmakingimpossiblewhattechnologymadepossible

    and I gained a lot of respect for OK Go, It’s a long read, but I highly recommend it. Turns out Damian Kulash is a pretty good writer

      wow yea, thanks for posting this link – i was one of the people who complained on antville that the video could not be embedded – it was good to read this and get some insight as to why

  • Dave

    Brilliant! That’s all I can say – brilliant!

  • Hope Staller

    woo! I dig it! rock on!

  • Alcham

    Love marching bands that do cool songs.
    Tusk is a lifelong fav song of mine.

  • you re cool

    WOW THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • awesomed!

    made my day!!! totally SENSATIONAL!!=)

  • Call me a Prick

    I don’t think it’s fair to say Ok Go deserves the title of king for best one-take video award, seeing as a lot of people had to collaborate on this. Sure the treadmill one was great, but this is different, and required mass-cooperation between many people, not just the original four.

  • Dr. Cahk

    Ummm….where are the treadmills?

  • Clownassasin

    great clip and really catchy tune

  • Droptop Cataract

    I can’t remember when a performance made me feel this good…

    Smiled like an idiot until I started laughing out loud…

    What an awesome piece of work.

    Wicked video!! Saw You Go by Keston Cobblers Club the other week on you tube.. Looks like a lower budget but still a pretty cool one take promo..

    Our future is secure with young people like this. What a presentation……just wonderful.

  • Dubbed

    At 1:39 the bass drum doesn’t match his actual beats sooooo wouldn’t say kings of the one take videos…

  • skeptichater

    Theres actually another bass drummer in the background who probably played whichever notes he missed as he was kneeling down, also, I’m pretty sure if they had dubbed it they would’ve made his voice clearer in the finale, as it is you can barely hear him over the marching band

    I shall be a better drum major than that
