Our Newest Experiment: Fan Correspondents

We're trying something new with our YouTube group.

It's called OK Go Fan Correspondents, and here's how it works: We'll pick one Fan Correspondent for each show and give them a ten minute interview with one or more band members plus free reign to tape the show, unless the venue forbids it. Document the show any way you want--you can interview fans, fight the merch guy, and try to get bartenders to invent drinks named OK Go. It's all up to you.

There are only three rules:
1) The band interview will be no more than 10 minutes
2) You have to use your own video camera
3) You have to edit and upload your footage to our YouTube group within a few days of the show

This is a test run, but it seems like it could be a lot of fun. If you want to give it a shot, send an email to with 'Fan Correspondent' and the date and town of the show. Right now we're only accepting one person for Orlando (tomorrow), one for Jacksonville (Monday) and probably two for Austin (over the weekend).

And if you're in Orlando, be warned: we can only get you an interview the afternoon of the show. You won't be allowed to video tape inside the venue.

Wow, this is the coolest thing ever!

Jorge, I may or may not do an OK Go road trip this summer, depending on where the boys go and when. But if I do, could I like, do this and document the trip? I think it would be pretty nifty. I'd just have to figure out how to be less technologically inept...

That sounds like an amazing opportunity... too bad the SXSW gig is so completely inaccessible! Not too many of us plebeian Austinites actually get in on any of the SXSW experience (except for the traffic and the drunken tourists). Hope you enjoy Austin, though -- if nothing else, we do have excellent Tex-Mex restaurants.
