OK Go get messy in zero G for their latest must-watch video

Even if you aren’t a fan of OK Go’s music, you can’t help but be amazed by the awesomely mind-boggling music videos they put out. Since the treadmill-dancing video for the song, Here It Goes Again, subsequent videos were increasingly elaborate; not only does the choreography look complex, the crazy thing is that they are all shot in one take. The band’s latest video, Upside Down & Inside Out, takes it to the next level – several thousand feet, to be exact.

With the help of Russia’s S7 Airlines, the band shot its latest video in zero gravity. The choreography sees the four members – Damian Kulash, Tim Norwind, Dan Kanopka, and Andy Ross – doing various stunts throughout the cabin. The whole thing looks computer-generated, so it’s crazy to learn that it’s all real, with no special effects employed or wires.

The band reportedly spent a year preparing for the shoot, going through the same kinds of training astronauts do. To create the video, 21 flights were made, where the band and others went through 15 periods of weightlessness, for a total of 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Unlike previous videos, Upside Down Inside Out required double takes. But to achieve the look of a single shot, all members had to stay in place when a period of zero gravity ended, and waited for the next period before picking up where they left off.

We doubt FAA regulations would have allowed the band to pull the stunts stateside, hence probably why they did it in Russia. We can only imagine how these guys will top this video.

How to transfer photos from an iPhone to a computer
The Apple iPhone 15 Plus's gallery app.

As the old saying goes, the best camera is the one you always have with you. If you're like most iPhone users, that means you've likely amassed a sizeable collection of photos on your device. However, while Apple's Photos app is a great way to manage and view your photo library, it's never a good idea to keep all your eggs in one basket. After all, suffering a lost or broken iPhone is painful enough without also losing all your precious digital memories in the process.

Even if you're backing up your iPhone to iCloud or your computer, it's a good idea to keep your photos backed up separately. After all, opening a folder or a photo management app is a much easier way to get at your photos than trying to extract them from an iCloud or iTunes/Finder backup, which requires either restoring them to another iPhone or relying on special software tools.

Right before Google I/O 2024, Google showed off the latest Pixel device, the Google Pixel 8a. This is the latest offering from the Pixel A-series, which is a more budget-friendly Pixel for those who don’t need all the bells and whistles of the flagship Pixel 8 or 8 Pro.

The Pixel 8a features a new design with more rounded corners and a matte-finish back. It packs Google’s latest silicon, the Tensor G3, but the camera hardware remains unchanged from its predecessor, the Pixel 7a.
