Friday Feature: OK Go’s new music video has us floating

     

    Now, the band shows us what it can do with little to no gravity. The video, for the appropriately titled song “Upside Down & Inside Out,” opens with the four members of OK Go strapped to their seats in a large airplane. They hammer away at laptop computers before tossing them into the air, where they float and spin with no strings attached. This is what happens when a jet flies at very specific angle called a parabolic arc, causing gravity to disappear for a moment. The periods of weightlessness generally last no more than 25 seconds at a time, so OK Go had to time the routine perfectly.

    In the end, they nail it in what appears to be a single take. “Upside Down & Inside Out” is the opening track from OK Go’s 2014 album Hungry Ghosts.
