OK (The Way Things) Go

On the off-chance you haven't seen it...

OK Go's video for "This Too Shall Pass"


Another incredible one-shot video (and a good song). Here's an article on how they did it, too.

Also watch closely in the bit with the chrome bowling ball. You get a good view of the under-appreciated steadycam operator who had to weave around and capture all this. :)


In case you don't get the reference in the post title, one of the first times this sort of video (single shot of a Goldberg-ish device) was popularized AFAIK was the 1987 German art film The Way Things Go. You can buy a copy on Amazon. It's similar to this but with more chemical connections in the machine. (And two edits - it's not technically single-shot.)
