Viral video connoisseurs OK Go are back with their latest impressively precise visual, this time for “Obsession,” a track off their 2014 album Hungry Ghosts. This one involves a huge wall of printers that spit out paper at an alarming rate and create some pretty cool effects in the process. The band members are suspended on wires while the colorful mayhem plays out behind them. It was directed by Damian Kulash, Jr. and Yusuke Tanaka. Check it out below.
The video comes with some … interesting technical specifications:
This video has a lot of flashing colors. If you’re susceptible to seizures, be careful, please. Your viewing experience will look significantly better if you manually set your YouTube resolution settings to 1440p or 2160p (for desktop, click the gear icon in the lower right). Just leaving it on “Auto HD” results in some pretty intense distortion during a few sections, because when the the colors and patterns get crazy, there’s actually just too much information flying by for YouTube’s normal HD compression. We broke the matrix. The good people of YouTube have been working with us to solve this (it’s a bit rate limitation issue) over the last 24 hours, but there’s no quick fix, and now it’s Thanksgiving in the US, and we’re all with our families.
