"And there is no end to illusion..."

“Dream delivers us to dream, and there is no end to illusion. Life is like a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue. . . . ”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

     Chicago natives, OK Go have a portfolio of some of the most remarkably creative videos ever assembled including "Needing/Getting", filmed on a race track obstacle course with microphones strapped to the bands helmeted heads while maneuvering a speeding vehicle.  Being accompanied by a rocking out gang of high school marching musicians for the video "This Too Shall Pass"  endeared them to band geeks across America. The memorable and adorable "White Knuckles" featured the ensemble interacting with some truly talented canines.  The bands 2006 award winning video for "Here It Goes Again " was directed by choreographer, Trish Sie. The video was shot while the band members performed on treadmills in one long continuous take. 

     So it comes as no surprise that OK Go chose to debut "The Writing's On the Wall", the first video single from their latest album Hungry Ghosts ( due out in a few months which you can pre-order online) with a similarly clever mind boggling experience. Enjoy the optical massage.
