The Writing’s on the Wall Music Video

Anamorphosis, Forced Perspective, Video 27 June 2014 0 Comments

OK Go is an American band known for their unusually quirky videos.  For their latest effort promoting their new single The Writing’s on the Wall, from the forthcoming album titled Hungry Ghosts, they decided to dive head first into the realm of optical illusions.  What they came up with is an entertaining music video featuring lots of forced perspective and anamorphic tricks.  The entire video was filmed in one continuous take which makes the whole thing even more impressive.  If they had one minor problem during the take, they had to go back and start over at the very beginning.  Have a look and let us know what you think about it in the comments.  Does one particular part of the music video stand out to you more than the others?

This second video takes viewers behind the scenes with OK Go’s bassist Tim Nordwind.  He explains some of his favorite parts of the video and just how nerve-wracking filming this video was.

This music video kind of reminds me of the Honda CR-V illusion commercial that was posted last year.  Are optical illusions becoming mainstream??
