This video documents the 8.5-mile parade we took through Los Angeles using Range Rover’s Pulse of the City app to checkin and spell out the words « OK GO » with the route. Make your own journey around your city, and be featured in a similar documentation video we’ll make in 2011.

Vous vous souvenez d’OK Go ? Oui, c’est le groupe qui, à chaque clip, essaie d’étonner, d’innover et d’amuser. Le clip de leur chanson This Too Shall Pass est certainement le plus connu qu’ils aient fait.  C’était un clip complètement fou avec la machine de Rube Goldberg la plus hallucinante de l’histoire.

Ensuite, je vous avais montré le clip d‘End Love où ils exploitent plusieurs effets spéciaux low-tech. Ils avaient ensuite fait White Knuckles, où on peut voir un tas de chiens savants danser avec eux, avant d’utiliser des morceaux de pain de mie grillés pour animer le clip de Last Leaf.

Cette fois,  le groupe a choisi de parader dans les rues perpendiculaires de Los Angeles. En checkant via GPS à divers endroits de leur trajet, ils sont parvenus à écrire le nom de leur groupe sur la ville. Ce clip a servi à sponsoriser une application pour téléphone portable, et c’est certainement le clip le moins réussi que je vous ai présenté jusqu’à maintenant.  Peu importe, il y a quand même une ambiance festive assez incroyable qui donne envie de danser.

  • Lyrics of / Paroles de Back From Kathmandu, by OK Go

In the dream you were someone different
You and everyone else all at once
You were beautiful, you were beautiful
In the dream you were just like you are

You loved everyone like a sovereign
Half magnanimous, half unimpressed
And I was talkin’ too much, and I was tryin’ too hard
In the dream it was just like it is

Everything was so simple
Things are and they always will be
Oh you are the answer to the question that is me
Yeah in the dream it was just like it is

We were captive there in a prison
Where everyone was guilty by mistake
It was infinite, It was infinite
In the dream it was just like it is

And I, I asked, is that good for you
You said « no probably not
But everybody needs to get through the night
And love is all we’ve got

Yeah in the dream it was just like it is
In the dream it was just like it is

In the dream you were someone different
You and everyone else all at once
You were beautiful, you were beautiful
In the dream you were just like you are
