OK Go is an American alternative rock band originally from Chicago, Illinois, US of A., but are now based in Los Angeles, California. The band is composed of Damian Kulash (lead vocals, guitar), Tim Nordwind (bass guitar and vocals), Dan Konopka (drums and percussion) and Andy Ross (guitar, keyboards and vocals).
So why do we care here on Japan—It's A Wonderful Rife?
Besides the interesting beat (I really do prefer less dance and more driving rock chords in my music), there is a Japanese element to the song and video.
Plus... it's kinda a catchy tune.
And they used a special-built drone to film the while video in ONE take - although they did do 44 takes, completing the whole routine 11 times... but still... this version was their best take... and it is one continuous shot.
And they use Honda's new car, the UNI-CUB.
Oh yeah... OK Go are also apparently friends with the video's director - the Japanese dude named Morihiro Harano.
Okay... I have to admit the song has grown on me after a couple of listens... It won't let you down.
