OK Go films music video for new single Upside Down & Inside Out in zero gravity.
American alternative rock band OK Go has shot their new music video totally in zero gravity.
In a statement on its site, OK Go said the video was shot in a solitary take, despite the fact that they expected to stop the shoot eight times in light of the fact that the times of weightlessness kept going a most extreme 27 seconds.
“We needed the entire video to happen in weightlessness, so we planned the routine in 27-second lumps, scenes that begin and end comfortable minutes gravity is going and returning.
“After we filmed a scene, when gravity returned, we stayed as still as we could for the five minutes of the plane climbing, and then began the next scene as soon as we were weightless again.”
The video was shot east of Moscow on local commercial airline S7.
It took OK Go 27 flights to finish the video, including planning, rehearsing and performing the routine eight times over eight flights.
There were “58 puke events” among the committed crew, the band said.
“The full crew was around 60 people. On each flight, we had three pilots/navigators, eight cosmonaut trainers, and 14 film crew, including the band and our aerialist dancers,” they said.
OK Go is known for its quirky videos, with its treadmill-filled clip for the tune Here It Goes Again pushing the band to distinction.
Their most recent clasp is the second popular music video shot in zero gravity to be posted online as of late.
Canadian space explorer Chris Hadfield recorded a front of David Bowie’s Space Oddity while locally available the International Space Station.
It has been seen more than 30 million times on YouTube.
