Let's get lyrical

Recently, Mr C played me a music video that showed nothing but the lyrics of the song in question. I was a bit disappointed, thinking it was just like Adele’s Skyfall video.

I’ve got a special affection for Jason Mraz, who I first heard of a few months after Mr C and I met.

If you haven’t seen the latest music video from OK Go, then you must view it now. I know. Wow. Right? It’s taken me a while to be convinced that it is actually real but after reading a great behind the scenes piece on it, I’m gonna go with it. Some facts you need to know: It took about a month and a half of very intense work, with people on-site all the time 55-60 people worked on the project in all 30 or more people to help reset the machine after each run Even with all those people helping, resetting the whole machine took close to an hour The video was shot by a single Steadicam It took more than 60 takes, over the course of two days, to get it right Now, the reasons this is MFC, aside from being awesome?
