OK GO get VMA advice from JC Chasez... in the crapper
Damian & Tim met JC from N'Sync in the bathroom today and got his advice on performing at the VMAs. It's pretty hilarious. Pass it around.

Loved JC. That was fun. You should let him be a guest band member! I used to meet all kinds of people in the johns at clubs - the Pandoras, the Bangles, Joan Jett, the Go Go's - okay so my age is showing! Maybe you could do your next video in the crapper and incorporate well timed flushes or something... ^_^

Just wanted to let you know that you have a bad link on your YouTube groups page. It starts with "OKGo can be found here: and then you list your YouTube page, your MySpace page and then your blog page. Your blog's link has some extra characters at the end.

Love your music and I love your YouTube vids. Keep up the great work :)

Flawless!!!! Simply gorgeous! Yowzah, my heart was racin' for yahs! That was perfect....
(And what's up with JC saying his "bye bye bye" moves are harder then doing a choreographed dance on 8 treadmills? HA! Seriously...JC, Most ppl can't even work out on ONE of those things with out breaking a limb.)
ANYways, that performance was like watching my Saviour decend from heaven! WOW!

i watched the VMA's to see the dance. i was really nervous for you guys, because that's a hard dance to pull off. haha you guys were awesome, and i'm so amazed/ecstatic at how far you guys have come! i've listened to you guys for awhile, since the first andy, since the first 2 OKGo cd's with only 3 songs, since forEVER. it's just so exciting. ok. enough of my creepy fan-crazyness.

Hey Guys!
YOu were frickin amazing at the VMAs! It was the highlight of my day, which isn't saying much because during the rest of it i was getting surgery.. Anyway I didn't see you mess up at all but then again i was kinda whacked out on painkillers. I even risked watching the VMAs with my parents to see you guys! I've loved you since A Million Ways and i bought your album full price on itunes! Good luck taking over the world i have been voting for you on VH1. Please Come to Charlotte NC! I finally wore down Panic!and Jack's Mannequin!

I'm kind of upset that Ok Go is now attracting mainstream fans (i'm really not into nelly and jt so much. by so much i mean at all) and I just want to give a virtual pat on the back to the real fans that have been ok go-ing since the first EP. You guys are the ones responsible for making last night happen at all.

As for the band, the ONLY reason I was watching the VMA's was because of you. Totally nailed it! My sister thought that the aerial shots kind of took away from the dance as a whole but I was like, "Who gives a damn?!??! They're freaking on fire!!!!!"

The treadmill dance continues to wow me every time I see it. Truly innovative, and one of the few genuine things I saw on the VMAs. I take my hat off to you for being able to do it live and to Trish for coming up with all those awesome moves.

Also, I LOVE the new suits. You boys really clean up good! I mean, you've always been hotties, but the paisley clashing things have been wearing a little thin lately, and -- no offense -- they have a slight tendency to emphasize your nerdy side. All duded up, you are four hot little biscuits. Mmmm-mmm-mmm, with molasses, too.

Thanks for staying true to it, and come back to Michigan soon. Love ya's.

That. was. perfect. You pulled off the dance perfectly, Damian didn't even almost fall at the beggining of the second verse. I loved though, that you could literally feel how nervous you all were, extremely cute! You truly need to come to Canada. Right now. I know you have bad experience because of the whole snow tires thing, but it's worth it, I swear. Love you boys, congrats on the great performance!

i noticed some of the same things, damian didnt lose his balance on the VMAs, but i liked it, it gave it character.
anyway, and i loved damians leap of joy after it was done. absolutely perfectly cute.

i was on itunes, and i saw a familiar picture on the home page.

and congrats on getting HELLA famous now!! im proud. and i can brag that i loved you guys before you got really really popular. which your absolutely deserve.

Very nice performance, and I love yo guys music, but I have something to ask that will probably be laughed and ridiculed at and pretty much thrown away without a single bloody care in the wind. I know you guys get a lot of requests and for a private show a person would have 2 pay like a trillion dollars in cash money, I was wondering... could you even the slightest chance play at my sister's sweet sixteen? Ah darn I feel like an idiot sayin that, but she really really liked you guys even before u waz popular, and I don't really get to do much for her, and she doesn't get to many thrills here in the NY suburbs. Plus, all she has been talkin about is how cool it would be for okgo to play at her party, and her friends really like to dance, particularly to your music. Man my parents are gonna hire a DJ! A DJ DARN IT! IF NOT FOR ME FOR THE MUSIC MAN! Yeah I'm not expecting a yes, because of short notice, lack of importance, no pay, but the place is pretty cool. I just wanna do something really cool for her, you know? She doesn't know I'm writing this, she'd probably laugh. So e-mail your no to me, if you want, just so i know, at
Oh and if I get one e-mail from another blogger, I'll just block you and send you spam. On a nicer note, I look forward to the already known answer reply if I get one. Until then.

P.S.- Yes I'm aware of the huge favor I'm asking of someone I don't know personally, no I'm not crazy. Think of it as a publicity stunt, if you wanna look at the positives.

P.S.S. Yes this is still from me, if you're actually gonna tell me no or the unreal dreamed yes, please tell me before the end of september. I don't expect it though, so no problem.

Wow I am such a dork.

Don't you laugh at me other bloggers I'm just trying to give a large... birthday present if you will... to my deserving family member.

SOOO..for you guys.YOU GUYS wearing the cool hats and nifty threads...i made a blog.I DIDN'T WANT TO..but to post a comment,i had all should feel quite loved.if not,go hug ya mama's.
i'm quite enfatuated with your new treadmill routine.the vma's..perfect.i'm glad you men didn't mess up ..EVEN though JC mentioned in the bathroom interview,that he worked out several hour,multiple times a week with all the b-boys.
intoxicating,is the word for your new album,and i'm digging that whenever i'm too lazy to actually put on okgo's music,i just flip the channel to find a target commercial.
BEFORE i depart,one more thing must be in the blog has got my brother's montessori school begging for young men have a gift.don't hide that under a bushel basket.

Ok - I don't watch the VMAs, but I watch Colbert and I saw you and ohmygod. I asked my teen if she knew the band okgo and she said "no" and I said, "the treadmill video on you tube?" and she said, "Oh yeah! Those guys are cool!" Ha! We're totally buying your CD.

My job involves working in an office sitting in front of a computer doing administrative ass things all day. It SUCKS. It is a NIGHTMARE. However, internet videos such as this one make the day ever so much more pleasant. It's like a breath of fresh air.
Keep rockin' OK Go (and you keep rockin' too JC, whatever it is you are doing these days post-NSync and post-songs like "Some girls dance with women").
