OK Go Guys Ride Tiny Little Honda Unicycles in Their Fantastic New Video

Yes, it's a single take

Does OK Go release albums? Like, full-blown records with multiple songs on them? I don't know. I don't care. Their videos are enough for all of us.

Japanese creative agency Mori is behind this one. (You may remember creative director Morihiro Harano, who created a giant xylophone in the woods in that 2011 smartphone ad.) Like all of OK Go's videos, it's amazing. I would put it up there with the great Rube Goldberg device video for "This Too Shall Pass," but maybe not quite as high as the truly awesome collaboration with dance troupe Pilobolus on "All Is Not Lost."

Anyway, here it is:

Those amazing little motorcycles are the Honda UNI-CUB, a strange device with some kind of robotic gyroscope inside that keeps it from falling over, even when the guys are leaning back and forth on them. (To be fair, OK Go are samurai warriors when it comes to the art of not falling over.) I don't want to give away the ending, but it gets nuts from there.

At any rate, the rock world's answer to Cirque du Soleil is back. Hooray for them, and for us. And also for the drone or helicopter or whatever is filming this thing, because wow.
