Stop what you’re doing right now…

…and watch this.

I don’t usually just post videos (not unless there’s a bloody good reason at least), but this video from OK GO is fantastic.

Yes, it’s totally inspired by that Honda advert, however – true to the ‘take-it-and-make-it-better’ generation we all live in – the guys really do build on what’s gone before to make this an utter delight to watch.

Enjoy.

Thanks to Matt Singley for the heads-up.

    It is a fun video and I like the time flip at the end as well.

    Holy shitsticks! This doesn’t *build* on the Honda ad, it drops two F16 loads of napalm on it. Thanks for posting it.

    Important to note that the Honda “Cog” advert is a rip off –

    @MsJen I lol’d at least three times and I’m still grinning.

    @Rupert You’re welcome.

    @Stewart The paint at the end is a winner.

    @Terence You can’t say that and *not* link to what you mean!

    Hmmm. Not sure. I know that Berocca ripped off their running machine video (http://ciarannorris.co.uk/2008/05/17/berocca-ad-inspired-by-ok-go-and-other-notable-copies/) but why do this one?

    Especially when it’s already been done so well already. Twice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Slh03uk88Ko & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQXpNGcERSw (I know the Pot Noodle one’s a Guinness spoof but there’s more than a bit of Honda in it too)

    OK, where’s the cut? And the splice?

    Also, 3M views in 3 days? Holy Guacamole.

    And another thing…lovely tune.

    Maximum awesome points for bringing this to my attention.
