Music video[edit]

An accompanying music video was released at the same time as the single, and was co-directed by OK Go and Tim Nackashi.[2] The entire video was made using a delayed image effect, and contains many psychedelic themes. All of the props in the video, such as Wiffle ball bats, gaffer tape, and beach balls, were bought from a 99 cent store.[3][4] As is typical for OK Go videos, it was shot in one continuous take.[4]

In other media[edit]

  • The song was featured in commercials in March 2010, for the TV shows Bones and Fringe.
