OK Go's 'The Writing's On The Wall' music video


OK Go's latest music video is yet another visual treat by the band who is known better to some for its music videos than for its actual music. "The Writing's On The Wall" will trick your eyes and make you question what you're seeing, but not to worry, each resolution is even better than the previous one.

Rolling Stone, who premiered the video, notes that this time around it took "nearly three weeks to assemble and 50 takes to get right."

As for the actual song, Damian Kulash explained to the Wall Street Journal that it's an homage to the point in a relationship "when you realize it's coming to an end and that it's inevitable."

Be on the lookout while you watch for influences from the likes of Salvador Dali, Felice Varini and Dan Tobin-Smith who inspired the band to make this video.

I hate CGI. It's uninteresting and has totally lost my interest. Whenever I see a movie with heavy CGI, its like watching somebody else play a video game. Old school movie magic for me. That's why I think this video is so cool.

Of course they make "visually stunning" videos. Everyone knows their songs suck.

Oh, I didn't realize that you were the spokes person for everyone in the world. I like their music. I know lots of people who like their music. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you have the right to assume everyone else doesn't either. You know what happens when you assume.
