This Too Shall Pass / RGM version

OK Go - This Too Shall Pass Music Video - RGM version

This video, directed by James Frost, is flat-out incredible. OK Go spent several months with Synn Labs building a giant Rube Goldberg machine in a warehouse to create a new one-take video for the song “This Too Shall Pass”. I’m not sure how they will ever top this one, but that’s what I thought three videos ago.

Watch the video below!


Thanks to my cousin Bryan for the link!

    And I thought their marching band video for this was awesome!

  • yea^ most bands dont take the time to even make one good video let alone two. the scale of this video is just astonishing

  • hansel

    this is just sooo nice. but dont know how often i’ve got to watch this to get all the details

  • Shinead

    Awesome.

  • Dan

    Ridiculous.

    Mega huge respect to the DOP for keeping up and not getting in the way.

  • Kyle

    When I was growing up I always dreamed of being able to make these machines for my profession. Then I realized there are people like this who can probably do it much better.

    DAMN!

  • Man, that is simply amazing. Im super impressed that they not only managed to make something so complicated function but look beautiful at the same time.

  • Joel

    Freaking epicness right here. Even better than their other one for this video… I loved the little piano drop, and all the umbrellas…

  • james frost also directed Radiohead’s House of Cards video

    • Joel

      Awesome! Another one of my favourite videos..

    Just too much fun for words.

  • I wonder how many pianos they used… 🙂 (considering that their overalls were already shot with paint from previous attempts and not for effect only).

  • Joans

    nice remake of that fischli und weiss thing made 20 something years ago, but still cool.

  • awesome… uauuh

    hmm now I know what to do, when I’m sick :D…

  • Matt

    This is the coolest video I’ve ever seen in my life! I’ve watched it three times a day for the past week and still find new things. Amazing! Also, I dig the song.
