It takes more than good music to get a band on the Wunderfool Blog. After all, this blog is about cool things on the net, not music. So ignore the fact that OK GO seems to have unlocked the secret of the perfect rock song and uleashed it on the world. (Thankfully they are using their powers for good.)
OK GO first entered my radar screen when I caught their video of "A Million Ways" somewhere on the net last year. How can you not love what appears to be a totally homegrown video of non-dancer-type band members doing a choreographed dance to their song in the backyard? Especially when the choreography is as cheesy and outright hilarioius as this? (You'll have to scroll down their video page and find the video.)
That video alone merits a Wunderfool appearance. But then Daniel clues me in that they topped it with the "Here It Goes Again" video, choreographed with 8 (count 'em) treadmills, their place in infamy was sealed. The bass player is too much. (White shoes, pink shirt, vest.) What is it about bass players that make them so insane? While you're on the video page, check out the Ping-Pong Instructional Video.
