The rock band OK Go is not really known for their music, but for their incredibly creative and unusual music videos – most of which involve single camera shots and cool gimmicks. They have outdone themselves with their latest video, which features 4 minutes of nonstop optical illusions that will have you scratching your head and oohing and aahing with amazement!
You may want to watch it more than once to catch all of the illusions – I certainly did. On the second and third viewings, I noticed things I had missed the first time or two! (If you don’t like the music, just mute it – it’s still fun to watch even with no sound.)
So how did they achieve this incredible feat? Time magazine went behind the scenes to discover what went into a few of the tricks. You can watch a short video where the band explains how they made this mind bending music video.
What’s your favorite illusion? Mine occurs around 2:50 – although I will admit, it’s hard to pick just one favorite!
