Let’s play ‘Spot the Edit’ with OK Go

The fun thing (okay, one of many fun things) about OK Go’s latest video is that it’s a three minute long video filmed in zero-go thanks to an aircraft flying in a parabola. Which gives you thirty or forty seconds of zero-g at most.

That means there must be at least four ‘edit points’ in the video of ‘Upside Down & Inside Out‘ to take out the thirty seconds of extra-g. Everyone will need to be sitting, securely holding on, or masked by a suitcase. The caption is right, it’s all real, but there’s some old fashioned editing at work (just like in The Spice Girls ‘Wannabe‘ and Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman‘).

Oh and it’s a damn fine idea and I wish I could have been with the band while they filmed it.
