For years now, power-poppers OK Go have been more famous for their ability to put together intricately choreographed homespun viral videos than for their music. Their clip for the new single “The Writing’s On The Wall” might be the band’s most ambitious yet. It sends them through a series of optical illusions in a Brooklyn warehouse, throwing them into the geometric paintings of artists like Felice Varini and Dan Tobin-Smith. The whole thing was done in a single take, and the amount of planning that must’ve gone into it is enough to cause your brain to blow a fuse. Frontman Damian Kulash, Jr. co-directed the video alongside Aaron Duffy and Bob Partington; watch it below.
