When a new OK Go music video drops, you know it's bound to be a crazy, ambitious good time. I mean, people are still talking about their 2006 vid for their single, "Here It Goes Again." Well, it's safe to say they've outdone themselves with their latest creation, a zero-gravity video the track, "Upside Down Inside Out." The band members boarded an S7 Airlines flight and pure magic ensued. The genius lies in the choreography—think about how hard it is to create a successful set of moves with your feet planted firmly on the ground. And now think about doing that while floating in the air. Exactly. Of course, OK Go nailed it. Watch the video and see the insanity for yourselves!
Ah, the treadmill. Once simply a torture device disguised as an exercise machine, it was transformed, via that amazing OK Go video, into one of the world's greatest choreographic aids. Dancing on a moving ramp! It's actually genius.
And now the treadmill companies themselves are catching on to their product's dance-y appeal. In honor of all the workout-related resolutions we tend to make in January, NordicTrack just released this crazy treadmill dance video. They claim it's the "world's largest"—and with 40 treadmills involved, they're probably right.
I mean...that is a lot of treadmills.
Here's one thing that's definitely true: It's good, happy, silly fun. And if you happen to try to re-enact any part of it on your local gym's treadmills, well, far be it from us to judge. (Although we'd suggest avoiding the rollerblading-on-a-moving-ramp stuff.)
Happy Friday, everyone.
Treadmills are sooooo 2006. These days, the ever-delightful band OK Go is into motorized unicycles—and, uh, umbrellas. Lots and lots of umbrellas.
The group recently released the music video for their new single, "I Won't Let You Down," and it combines those two unlikely elements in a brilliantly choreographed routine for hundreds of dancers. And when I say brilliant, I mean BRILLIANT: It made me literally gasp out loud. (Don't you dare skip the ending, which is where the true insanity happens.)
Fun fact: A lot of the video's magic comes from aerial views—like this one, of the hordes of umbrellas—filmed by camera-toting drones:
It's the perfect Thursday moment of dance zen. Enjoy!
There was a time—up until yesterday afternoon, to be precise—when I thought OK Go had already done all the dancing there was to do on treadmills.
Well, my friends, I have never been happier to admit I was wrong.
I don't know who this talented dude is, but he is doing gym time RIGHT.
