Simply stunning

A music video from the band OK Go. The song is not too bad - the engineering is amazing.

OK Go - This Too Shall Pass - RGM version

That is brilliant and judging by the overalls, two or three takes were required!

The splat at the end is perfect! And how many TVs did they hammer?

I have seen things somewhat similar but never set to music and not nearly this amazing! the end answered the question about their outfits!

I love stuff like that.

Good find, Andy.

Brilliant find, Andy

The mind boggles at the thought of how much planning went into devising and successfully implementing the 'mechanical' sequence of events shown here

Thanks folks, and I see them Dave.

I just watched OK Go again, love it, and now it seems to be in Hi Def and the title has changed from 'RGM version' to 'Rube Goldberg Machine version'. Going viral?

There's a 'making of' series on Youtube at Making of TTSP #1 - OK Go, go up #2 to #4. It doesn't tell you much but it's fun.
