Behind the Scenes of OK Go’s Viral Optical Illusion-Packed Single Take Music Video

Indie rock band OK Go‘s recent music video for the song “The Writing’s On the Wall” was a smash hit, receiving some 6.6K likes on PetaPixel alone and currently boasting over 7.6M views on YouTube.

But just in case the claim that it was all shot in a single take without any cuts has you skeptical, the band yesterday released a spellbinding behind-the-scenes video to show you how the optical illusion magic was made.

As we mentioned when we shared the video, the fact that it was shot in a single take certainly doesn’t mean it only took one take to get it right. What you see above is the result of 50 tries and 3 weeks worth of rehearsals. But boy, did it ever come together nicely.
