OK Go’s new video for “I Won’t Let You Down” follows through on the song title’s promise: It will not let you down.
The men of OK Go dance around on UNI-CUBs, personal mobility devices that act similar to Segways but without the standing, and are later joined by a mass of umbrella-toting women. Shot in Japan’s Chiba Prefecture, the video’s dancers open and close their colorful umbrellas as the custom multi-copter camera spins around them, collecting both aerial and street-level shots. The result is a mesmerizing, uninterrupted shot of umbrella-assisted choreography.
OK Go first displayed their penchant for this kind of thing with their Grammy-winning video for 2007’s “Here It Goes Again,” which features the band members dancing on moving treadmills in one uninterrupted take.
“I Won’t Let You Down” is the second single off OK Go’s latest album, Hungry Ghosts, out now.
