Usher Runs Through Confetti In Broadway-Inspired “Scream” Video

Unlike his movie-esque video for “Climax,” Usher went back to the party scene with the help of the Argentinian Broadway show, Fuerza Bruta for the video for his second single off Looking 4 Myself, “Scream.” Considering it’s heavy bass that laces many of Usher’s club tracks, it only makes sense for him to create that…

OK Go Appear In Chevy Sonic’s Super Bowl Commercial (But Their Music Doesn’t)

It’s may be a bit confusing why OK Go agreed to appear in a Chevy Sonic Super Bowl commercial without one of their own songs playing in the ad — the track featured in the below commercial (with a Chevy Sonic performing “100% real stunts”!) is .fun’s “We Are Young”. But it makes more sense…

It’s time to play the music — of the Muppets cover compilation The Green Album, that is.

OK Go Are Dancing Crazy In “All Is Not Lost” Video

Like usual, our brains hurt trying to figure out how OK Go pulled off their latest music video achievement. The animal-friendly band teamed up with dance troupe Pilobolus for “All Is Not Lost”, and the interactive clip, filled with bodysuits and kaleidoscope-inspired dancing over glass, feels like a complicated synchronized swimming routine out of the…

We Propose A Toast To OK Go’s Latest Stop-Motion Video

OK Go making a brilliant, creative, quirky music video is totally expected at this point. (And often critiqued by people who somehow have a problem with ingenuity.)
