OK Go
OK Go, the boys behind the treadmill music video Here It Goes Again, is once more promoting their music with a very unique video.

The band, who has dazzled us with viral videos involving Muppets and dogs, has put on a four-minute show of optical illusions featuring themselves. Throughout the video for Writing's On the Wall, they walk through odd constructions until they basically disappear or transform entirely – without the use of computer graphics.

What’s more, the entire video is a single panning shot, just like their canine-based video White Knuckles, which has been watched over 16 ...

OK Go White Knuckles
OK Go is no stranger to making viral hits out of their music videos. Through coordination and countless takes, the band makes a visual spectacle with their single-shot movies incorperating things like treadmills and - in this case - dogs.

Before you go all PETA on OK Go, it's important to note that these dogs are rescue pups from a local shelter and the band is urging fans to donate to their area shelter for animals. Also, they will be selling a video with proceeds going to ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
