    that was rad. totally made my day.

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

  • Awesome!!

    I’m feel better after watching this video.

  • “This video contains content from EMI. It is no longer available in your country.” why do they do this… fucked up internet…

  • Brittany S.

    being an ex-band nerd, this made me smile big time

  • ellie

    i was just watching this from the freepeople link and now its here, ha! kinda funny to me, but still, super awesome song and vid!

  • panda

    omfg i was clapping with delight like a 2 year old at this

  • Every time I see this it makes me smile 🙂

  • Kyle

    I liked this video even more after reading this…


    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

    niiiiice 😀 ok, i was in marching band, and my band would have been admiting they lost if they went up against this.

  • Nic

    woot, marching band for the win (drum line rocks!)

  • 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.

  • James

    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..

    You tube link /watch?v=cYpN6GVjWe8

  • 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

  • Anonymous

    I shall be a better drum major than that

  • Christie Killey

    Whoever directs their videos is a flipping genius!

  • great clip and really catchy tune…

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind

Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).



Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
