OK Go: Synchronized dancing + dogs = Internet magic (Video)
OK Go is at it again. You know, the guys who made that treadmill-inspired music video back in 2006. The song "Here It Goes Again" put the band on the map with more than 50 million views on YouTube. They performed the song live at the 2006 VMAs, treadmills and all, and the clip won a Grammy Award.
They've gone on to make a number of similarly synchronized YouTube videos, each one slightly outdoing its predecessor. (Scroll down to see the videos.)
Their latest foray for their song "White Knuckles" follows the same template: detailed, though not that elegant choreography with props. This time the band uses lightweight white furniture and dogs. Yes. Dogs. Who could resist?
"There's the saying, 'Never work with kids or dogs' in the film business, but I never went into panic mode," bassist Tim Nordwind told New York magazine. "We were just working with people who were very good with dogs, as well as working with dogs who were very good at being dogs."
And these dogs were very good at being cute.
Here is the original Ok Go treadmill video and the more recent "End Love." Catch up on their repertoire here:
