Friday Video – OK Go, “White Knuckles”

Finally. We’ve been putting this song on mix discs and playlists from the moment that OK Go lead singer Damian Kulash was nice enough to send us the band’s new album Of the Blue Colour of the Sky after a phone interview last December, and at long last, the Princealicious “White Knuckles” (dig that guitar in the break) is a single. This may not be the most eye-popping of the videos the band’s made for this record, but it’s still another impossibly well-planned one-take video. Plus, we’re guessing the band will tell you that this one was the most difficult to execute, given that they shared the stage with, to use a LOLcats expression, goggies. Lots of very well-trained goggies.

Bassist Tim Nordwind handles lip syncing duties yet again, and if they keep this up, people are going to think he’s the actual singer (psst! Kulash is the one that kinda looks like Hugh Grant’s little brother), but good luck paying attention the band in this one. With the exception of the chair dancing bit (it’ll make sense when you see it), the dogs are the stars from the moment two of them do three laps around their feet. To say any more would spoil the fun. Watch, and watch again.

And, as a bonus, here is OK Go drummer Dan Konopka getting into a staring contest with Animal. Yes, that Animal. Cheers.
