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

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      see i dont get that, they should want as many people to see it as possible – laame!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

    Every time I see this it makes me smile :)

    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

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      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.

  • http://penisenvy.com 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..

    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…

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
