More Than OK

This is undoubtedly one of the most awesome music videos I've ever seen. It's OK Go dancing about on treadmills. Now, I had previously enjoyed the silly, yet well-choreographed antics of this video (particularly the slow-mo faux fisticuffs), but when you transpose those frolics to treadmills, the result is spectacular. It's one continuous shot that reportedly took 15 takes to nail (not counting rehearsals). Apparently the band also performs some of their routines during live shows, too, as evidenced by this clip (with very quiet, lousy sound). Watching them perform on stage reminds me of nothing so much as a little girls' dance recital. In a good way. Moreover, I actually like their music. That's always a plus.
