Video: Rube Goldberg-esque Music Video

The OK Go Band - This Too Shall Pass - RGM version
Directed by James Frost, OK Go and Syyn Labs. Produced by Shirley Moyers. The official video for the recorded version of "This Too Shall Pass" off of the album "Of the Blue Colour of the Sky". The video was filmed in a two story warehouse, in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. The "machine" was designed and built by the band, along with members of Synn Labs over the course of several months.
Go to the Synn Labs link above for more information of the creation of this 4-minute long Rube Goldberg machine.

The OK Go band are the same guys who came up with that Treadmill Video, which, if you have not seen it yet, well, then, you are one of the very few. And you SHOULD go see it, for heaven's sake. You won't know what to talk about at those fancy cocktail parties, y'know? That is, if you can ever tear yourself away from the Internets.

Big hat tip to the Potrzebie blog!
