Much like the board game Mouse Trap, OK Go built a massive wonder of physics for their new video in which one contraption sets off another. The camera follows every move in one single shot that has us totally baffled.
The band built the "machine" over the course of several months and filmed the video in a two-story warehouse in Los Angeles with the help of some super smart people at Syyn Labs.
"These guys can build rocket ships," lead singer Damian Kulash says. "The point is to not make things that are perfect. The point is to make things that use the properties of the objects we're playing with and that, you know, are homemade -- that anybody can do."
