Another Very Cool Video by OK Go!

You may remember the band OK Go rose to fame in part based on its viral treadmill video for the song "Here It Goes Again." Well, the foursome is at it again with "This Too Shall Pass" and an amazing Rube Goldberg machine.

As noted by Dylan Tweney on Gadget Lab:
For nearly four minutes — captured in a single, unbroken camera shot — the machine rolls metal balls down tracks, swings sledgehammers, pours water, unfurls flags and drops a flock of umbrellas from the second story, all perfectly synchronized with the song. A few gasp-inducing, grin-producing moments when the machine’s action lines up so perfectly, you can only shake your head in admiration at the creativity and precision of the builders.
In a word: Amazing!
