A brand new video premiered this morning from internet darlings OK Go. You’ve seen them dancercise in “A Million Ways”, show of their prized pooches in “White Knuckles” and this year alone wrack up UK Video Music Awards for “Best Rock Video” and “Best Video of the Year” with their mind boggling Rube Goldberg machine making “This Too Shall Pass”. Today they released their first ‘animated’ video for the tune “Last Leaf’.
In partnership with Samsung, the band “ expressed interest in working with Nadeem Mazen and Ali Mohammad, founders of Serious Business Design, on an animation idea they’d been dreaming up, and after some dialogue, Samsung turned OK Go loose with its latest innovation in premium camera technology, the Samsung NX100 camera. Each second of the video is a sequence of fifteen Samsung NX100 photographs, which OK Go, shot with Mazen, Mohammad and a crew of interns.” The video is premiering via Myspace and at www.okgo.net/lastleaf. The band will be appearing on ‘The Today Show’ premiering a video starring them with the Today Show’s Hosts on November 18th. The group is also wrapping up their US headlining tour November 27th in LA at the Nokia Theater. Is there anywhere the band wont be soon? And to be fair they’re only Supporting Metric because it’s in Canada.
