Among the emotions we feel when we watch OK Go’s new video, Upside Down & Inside Out, are: joy, excitement, wonder, hope, and a bit of jealousy because flipping around in zero gravity looks so ridiculously fun and we want to be doing it.
We feel a bit like Jimmy Kimmel when we say this, but, thank you, OK Go, for going to space (not really, but might as well be) to shoot this awesome music video.
Shooting a video in zero G and then releasing it on Facebook only? That’s far out, alright. And we like it! These guys can do no wrong, only a lot of really right! So right! Too right, almost…
The bandmates flip their laptops and tablets around like they’re mad at them (should’ve bought a Mac!) and then get into some carry-on props and paint, Blue Man Group style. (Side note: subbing the actual band, or the hostesses, for the Blue Man Group may have been the only possible way to improve this video.)
Of course, we’re used to this outright freshness from the Chicago-born band—remember this little ditty?
Man, if you just watched that one for the first time, then you’re welcome for that, too.
Sure hope they exercised caution when opening the overhead bins upon landing—we have a feeling some items may have shifted during the flight.
