OK Go & Chevy Sonic – Needing/Getting Music Video

Below is the new music video from OK Go, made in partnership with Chevrolet. OK Go set up over 1000 instruments over two miles of desert outside Los Angeles. A Chevy Sonic was outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, and the band recorded this version of Needing/Getting, singing as they played the instrument array with the car. The video took 4 months of preparation and 4 days of shooting and recording. There are no ringers or stand-ins; Damian took stunt driving lessons. Each piano had the lowest octaves tuned to the same note so that they’d play the right note no matter where they were struck.

One thought on “OK Go & Chevy Sonic – Needing/Getting Music Video

  1. This is great. I’m always excited to see Ok Go make a new music video because of the thought that they put into it. Many mainstream music video these days don’t have the creativity or effort that these guys do in their music videos.
