OK Go "Do What You Want" v.2, Dir. Damian Kulash w/ James Frost
mtv's coming loose at the seams... (no idea really. not italian, but, yeh, i'm in continental yerp - and this time safari liked overdrive jes fine, and conveniently showed the handy link, as it will.)
neither of the 3 links works with me. is there a trick?
the last mp4 link works fine, just save link as...
my eyes... all yellow and orange...
I think they're now incapable of making a video that isn't fun and infectious. Could this be the end to the "fixed camera" trilogy?

I like Olivier's version much better. This just reminds me of the scene in Garden State when Zach's shirt matches the wallpaper.
co-genial. even though I dont get the point why do they have 2 videos 4thesame song?
I'd bet a dollar this was not commissioned. Instead, completely done on spec.
Co-directed by Blip Boutique (James Frost): 25 MB mov. Premiered Thursday February 15th simultaneously on MTV, MTV2 & VH1, on and off line.
Riding the same wave...beach after beach...May be fun for the sufer - but incredibly boring to the viewer.
better than the gondry version, hands down.
It seems like they were trying to make another viral video that people would pass around. The Gondry version is a better direction at this point I think. The band needs to show at least a bit of "sexiness" if their to be anything more than a fad. -j
shouldn't they just stop being a band and become an outright theatre/performance outfit? the paisley man group?
I think this is the perfect direction for OKGO. Doing another dance video is sort of out of the question at this point if they want to maintain any credibility as a rock band, so this is the next best thing. Huge props to whovever decided against shooting some 'Jet-esque' rock performance video. This one's got the same fun attitude and the same viral potential and c'moooooon people, this band is actually using music videos to carry their career and build buzz, not just as an afterthought-- that should be something that everyone on this site can be excited about.
incredible, groundbreaking - so much better than the other version - enough with the jealousy critics, lets just enjoy!!!
Entertaining, tho' I think I have a hankering for a curry now!
(Flock wallpaper is common Indian restaurant decor here)
Wow, ugh, er, oww. I had to pause it several times and come back to view the clip in 30 second chunks. Interesting for its commitment to the theme but ends up feeling like the guy in the Guiness Book with the three foot long fingernails. The effort is astounding but I don't end up thinking he is all that cool. (Plus, I end up a bit nauseous).
Thanks for the link, spit - but I am still not buying that this kind of stuff is really helping out bands on the career front. OkGo might (and a that is a might) be making more cash on the summer concert circuit, but only if they blow all their gained money on wallpaper outfits/sets and treadmills built into their tour stage. This kind of things attracts attention, but attention is NOT a career. Hits on a website or click-through traffic is not a long-tem business model. OkGo has sold around 200k CDs of their record that came out a year+ ago. They are rich in the internet currency of attention, but that is a weird (and broke) kind of stardom.
Viral Video stars are like actors that appeared on the original Star Trek show. They may be "famous" in a small, odd circle - but the honorariums from Trekkie conventions won't really pay the bills. No other band besides Ok has come close to this and yet people are chasing this viral thing like it is real.
How valuable is it to become famous (used as loosely as possible) to a group of people who are the MOST likely to obtain your work without paying for it?
wallpaper, it's all around you.
Whoever did the sound design for that clip, they owe a large check to RDJ.
Sorry, Aphex Twin. Much of the sound is from his Selected Ambient Works Vol 2. I'm in a hurry so I'm not acting right.
the link posted was for industry folks initially.. it went bad, new link posted:
I can assure you the inspiration for this video was NOT garden state, a curry house on the mile end road, maybe?
On TV this vid is just boring. Valiant effort at expanding MTV2's boundaries, but it looks better on a computer screen.
