OK Go: Disco Dancing On Scooters With Synchronized Backup Dancers

“OK Go – I Won’t Let You Down”

A lot of the coverage of this video is focused on the fact that it was shot with a drone which doesn’t communicate much about what they actually did.

In “I Won’t Let You Down” OK Go continues their one long shot approach to complicated scenarios that have to go right in one take.

That’s tough enough when you’re in the studio dealing with Rube Goldberg contraptions but adding in groups of people moving in unison really ups the ante.

I think all the guys did a good job, they do work very hard, but it’s interesting how clearly relaxed Damian Kulash appears while dancing with his upper body. No wonder they put him in front!
