Two one-take music videos

These are fun, though (I think) unrelated. Both were shot in a single take (or at least made to look like it).

OK Go, This Too Shall Pass (Rube Goldberg Machine Version) – sort of strange and amazing all at once. It’s a sort of postmodern magic show created in someone’s garage. Or like that ‘Crazy Machines’ game

LCD Soundsystem, Drunk Girls – Amusing primarily because it’s so deranged and destructive. It also reminded me a bit of The Kills’ The Good Ones [1] which I’ve mentioned here before, and which isn’t a one-take video but also quite messy.

(Thanks to A. for the OK Go recommendation.)
