OK Go's New Video Is Going To Freak You Out.
We promise. But in return, we need you to freak OK Go out. The video, for "Here It Goes Again," is in the running for VH1's Top 20 Countdown. We need you to go and vote for it. All you have to do is drag "Here It Goes Again" into the first spot. If you're feeling generous, drag Regina Spektor into the second one, because I like her new album. Then click submit. You can't watch the videos unless you have a PC. But you can vote for them no matter what.

This is what you're playing for:



Exactly. Now Go Vote.

VERY IMPRESSIVE!! You guys have some serious skills!! It looked like you guys had fun doing it, but you could also tell there was a TON of focus on all of your faces. Funny, but you guys are SERIOUSLY talented too!! I think I found two mistakes too...(I've watched this about 10 times)which makes it all the better because I could tell it was only ONE take!! I've voted for you on VH1 and sent your video to friends. This thing is going to BLOW UP!!! Get ready for stardom, boys!!Congrats!!

That was seriously impressive, yanno. :D I hadn't ever heard of you guys before I saw that on YouTube, and now... I'm glad I have.

The song rocks, by the way. It's just the kind of thing that makes you want to actually move-- that is, if having it stuck in your head for the next twenty-four hours doesn't make you go insane first. But seriously, I could probably listen to it for quite a while. It'd be on my playlist for ages, that's for sure.

So, thumbs up at the video /and/ the song-- they're both totally ace, and I'll actually start looking around for your albums in the store. I hope I find one, anyway, since this /is/ the Philippines-- I don't know that they've got your albums here, but hope springs eternal!

Found you guys on You Tube. Best video I've seen in a LONG time...I sent it to everyone I know and I'm going back to watch it again right now.

I don't know how you guys did it, but you've managed to cut through the clutter/crap of what's out there. I'll be you we'll be seeing rap "artists" doing single camera dance videos next. This can get way out of hand, maybe I should curse you now for starting it.

And also...I just finished downloading your two CDs from bittorrent. How much do I owe you guys personally? (so i can cut out the record company and iTunes) Seriously, I'll send the dough and a case of what you like.

Keep making your music and may you never have to play covers ever again. (except the ones that you actually like.) :-)

Hah. anyway...I really like your music, it's VERY different from what I usually listen to (hiphop), haven't heard a song I don't like yet! anway good luck with this whole 'famous' thing!
ps-when you get famous don't try to convert everyone to your political view its effing annoying...<3

Hey!

I'm writing from Santiago, Chile. I'm becoming fan of yours since I saw "Do What You Want" music video for once, almost 6 months ago. Now I've seen all your clips, I've been recommending OK Go to all my rock lover friends. (One day, we'll all be enough people to fill an arena ready to see you playing.)

I totally saw you guys in Portland(orygun) and i am glad you guys are spending more time creating videos to entertain your fans rather than play xbox, the only problem is this...
The fact that you do not have a warning explaining the dangerousness of this treadmill video is highly irresponsible. Because of your folly and disregard towards such precautions, my little brother... and sister, both of which who are extremely innocent and/or adorable, felt that they were prepared enough to attempt your video shananigans. So after 2 years of their committed fundraising(they opened the first 24 hour lemonade stand on my block, open 7 days a week, they even missed religous mass, becoming blacklisted at our local mosque) and many trips to the local plasmabank (I dont even know how they sold their plasma they are both 5 years of age), they were able to purchase a camera, treadmills, and two spanish mail order brides to complete the dancing quartet. By the way I just found out Lance Bass is gay. Now Justin Timberlake is really not coming back to Nsync. Anyway back to my story, my brother, Sonny Goodchild and my sister, Candy Cutenstuf along with Rosalita Bonita and Chiquita Banana set the date and studied your act hard. This is where the montage would be. At first they practiced with cardboard treadmills (because the real ones were in the mail) and then came the fateful day that would forever live in infamy. The Treadmills came in and Rosalita and Chiquita went to work immediately building the then boxed and dismantled treadmills. Three Lunches and two Siestas later, the show was ready to begin. Now the fateful day was here, the one that I spoke of previously, except now I'm not lying. Camera was on, and the kids entered the room that would unknowingly become their crypt. The music began and everyone was ready, Candy and Sonny had the hugest smiles, shining brighter than any globally warmed afternoon where the sun is beating ominously down on the McDonald's cow pastures of Costa Rica. When the paralysis began the music continued to wail, masking their childish screams as the treadmills tore them limb from limb. You see, my former sister and brother were allergic to treadmills, the main reaction being motor paralysis. Rosalita and Chiquita just stood their, motionless, unable to understand my siblings cry for help, unable to comprehend what was going on...(dramatic pause and deep breath, as i throw my hand blasphemously into the air, as if to challenge Zues himself)... IF ONLY I HAD taught my brother and sitster that simple command, "ayudame" (help me en espanol for all those non espanol habladors out there). I blame myself, I should have never sparked their curiousity and admiration by allowing them to view your video. But how could I have known, there was no warning, no caution, we were like sitting ducks, sitting ducks watching television...
Epilogue:
Sonny and Candy's grotesque death made a traditional burial impossible, the fleshy mush that had become Sonny and Candy(I named it Sonndy) was cremated and their ashes were spread on the corner where they sold lemonade. At the service all I could do between soul gripping sobs was repeat the words of my newlyweds Rosalita and Chiquita, "Vaya Con Dios...Vaya Con Dios"

Just kidding that totally didn't happen you guys are awesome.
