Watch OK Go's Extremely Slow Motion "The One Moment" Video
Nov 23 2016 by Michele Stevens
Viral video maestros OK Go have one-upped themselves once again with their latest on-camera stunt, a super-slow-motion video for the song "The One Moment".
The entire video took 4.2 seconds to film and was slowed down to sync with the almost 4-minute-long song. Involving everything from exploding rainbow paint buckets, to tanks of water smashing and blowing up guitars, in just three hours the video has racked up over 1.5 million views. How the hell did they do it?
OK Go, the Chicago-formed indie band with a penchant for elaborate music videos, has found a way to top itself. with salt? Their weird performance art projects are all different, but the aim stays the same. During the film, band members create and interact with hundreds of synchronized, high-speed events, choreographed to the cathartic song about the most important moments in life, those moments when everything changes. High-speed cameras are used to stretch those few seconds over the entire length of the song, which is almost 4 minutes long.
The song "The One Moment" is a celebration of (and a prayer for) those moments in life when we are most alive.
For the video, we tried to represent this idea literally - we shot it in a single moment.
"We constructed a moment of total chaos and confusion, and then unraveled that moment, discovering the beauty, wonder, and structure within", the band explained on its website. "We hope it helps inspire people to use their moments wisely".
