Their latest video for the song “End Love” is yet another display of pure creativity, as they blend stop motion and slow motion techniques in strange and awesome new ways.

A Gigantic Rube Goldberg Machine

Here’s a video that’s so creative and awesome it’s sure to get your artistic juices flowing.

I wonder how many takes this video required.
