Sculpture and Pop Music

I'm not a big fan of pop music but OK Go's new video, Needing/Getting, may change that.
It's elaborate, funny, and perfect for a Friday

It's also an enormous sculpture.

So how do they play this song on stage?

I Didn't know this group before but I loved it. This defies the concept of POP music.

Glad you enjoyed it, Beatriz.

To me this video is so American,-both good and bad. The over the top scale of the project, the willingness to be all out silly...and the semi-mindlessness of fast and loud and reckless... seems it's hard to have one without the other...
