Yeah! It only took two days to make that video.

Nine if you count the full week that goes by after the song ends.

Yeah, I was just gonna say, that one goose made best friends with them. I was trying to figure out whether it was some wild goose that just decided to play along and follow them everywhere, or if it was a trained goose that they brought in for the video. That goose is in on the awesome, either way.

This kind of reminds me of The Wizard of Speed and Time by Mike Jittlov. After 30 years, the Wizard is still a downright amazing piece of filmmaking.

It is!

And he inspired other filmmakers, probably even the director of this video!

OK Go and maybe Weird Al seem to be the only musicians who care about making interesting official videos anymore.

My first thought was, "Why are they dressed up like the ghosts from Pac-Man?"

Then I realised that the orange one wasn't as orange as I thought, and then suddenly I wondered why Otoboke Guzuta Crybaby Mocky Pokey Clyde wasn't in there....
