Known for using innovative optical illusions in their music videos, US-based band OK GO recently released the official video of their song “Obsession” from their new album “Hungry Ghosts”.
The video begins with a piece of paper coming out of a printer and revealing the words “What you’re about to see is real: 1 band, 567 printers, and a lot of paper.” To avoid the ire of environmentalists, the introduction was followed by an explanation printed on another paper that says, “By the time you see this, all of this paper (sic) would have been recycled, and the proceeds given to Greenpeace.”
The band also put this warning as part of the description of the video on YouTube: “This video has a lot of flashing colors. If you’re susceptible to seizures, be careful, please.”
OK GO is composed of Damian Kulash Jr., Timothy Norwind, Andy Ross and Dan Konopka.
