It seems that with each new music video, the band OK Go breaks new ground in creativity. Today the band just released a new music video for the song “Upside Down & Inside Out.” The 3-minute video, shown above, was shot in one take in zero gravity in a real plane flying through the sky.
“What you are about to see is real,” OK Go says. “There are no wires or green screen.”
Here’s a series of teaser videos shared by OK Go earlier this month leading up to the release of the actual video today:
The video was shot in Russia with S7, the country’s largest airline. Zero gravity is achieved when the airplane dives towards Earth, providing momentary weightlessness for the passengers inside. Since the outside world can’t be seen in the video, it just looks like gravity has been magically suspended.
“The process is basically: dance practice, dance practice, dance practice, airplane,” says OK Go.
