Designed to make you happy

OK Go have a particular talent with music videos, which are an artform I've largely ignored since MTV stopped playing them on a regular basis. But, I've recently discovered that YouTube is the new MTV except that you get to program the channels yourself.

Anyway, OK Go's videos: they have been, since the band's 2002 video for "A Million Ways", been fun, quirky, inventive, and unlike anything I've ever seen. Each one can be described that way. What they lack in special effects bombast, they make for in originality.

Below is their latest, "White Knuckles". Enjoy.

And you can see more of their videos on their YouTube page.

Dog tricks AND choreographed chairs? I am happy.

I can't believe they worked with these trained dogs! That must've stretched them all a lot to learn how to do that.
Is this a one-take video like their others?
