OK Go goes Rube Goldberg Machine

The US band Ok Go came out with this music video a few years ago. It's where they do a dance routine on moving treadmills. I'm sure most of you reading this have seen it. Well... they're back again with the release of this new video for the song "This Too Shall Pass" from their latest album, "Of The Blue Colour Sky." In the video, the band is seen within a really sophisticated and elaborate Rube Goldberg Machine.

If you're unfamiliar of what a Rube Goldberg machine is, it's one of those contraptions made of random parts of various sizes that a strategically placed, so that when you hit one end, it will cause a chain reaction of events. One object hitting another in sequence. Kind of like a domino effect, which is the best way I can best describe it without getting too technical.  Anyway, the video is really cool. Have a look. It was shot in a two story warehouse and I can only imagine how many hours and times they had to do it before they got one right. It's a job well done.
