OK Go are back with another video today, and it’s, once again, a colorful, mind-blowing mess. Directed by OK Go-singer Damian Kulash, Jr. "The One Moment" is a "a moment of total chaos and confusion, and then unraveled that moment, discovering the beauty, wonder, and structure within.” Is there a better way to describe this thing?

As you may or may not have already seen, the video itself only took 4.2 seconds to shoot, but when slowed down, the video reveals a series of intricate choreography that combines water, explosions, and lots and lots of paint. The stats on the video are really impressive.

Kulash recounts:

“There are 318 events (54 colored salt bursts behind Tim, 23 exploding paint buckets, 128 gold water balloons, etc.) that were synchronized to the music before the breakdown. After that there are only 9 digitally triggered events.”

For more on the video and what went into it, check out the background notes here. In the mean time, you can just watch the video again.


Lawsuit of The Day: Taylor Swift is Being Sued For $42 Million Over 'Shake it Off' Plagiarism Allegations

Haters really are gonna hate. Hate so much they want to sue you for $42 million.

R&B artist Jesse Graham filed a lawsuit against Taylor Swift for similarities between Swift's 2014 'Shake it Off' and his song 'Haters Gonna Hate.'

Both songs contain the phrase, "Haters gonna hate, players gonna play."

"Her hook is the same hook as mine," he told Daily News, claiming Swift uses it about 72 times in her song. "If I didn't write the song 'Haters Gone Hate,' there wouldn't be a song called 'Shake It Off.'"

He originally only wanted a selfie with Swift, but her camp denied that request.

Here are the songs. Too similar?

Our verdict?

Just shake it off, Taylor.

Surprising fact of the day: Daniel Tosh looks great with eyeliner.

On an assumed quest to remain culturally relevant, the comedian released a shot-for-shot version of Selena Gomez's music video for 'Good For You.'

And it is breathtaking.

Those legs. Those dreamy eyes.

The video also features a "special guest," which turned out to be prop comedian Carrot Top.

Thanks for the weird Internets, Tosh and Top.

Rose McGowan releases a terrifying music video.

Can't unsee.

Rose McGowan is really pushing her way back into popular culture over the past several months.

She got a lot of coverage for calling out her years of experience with sexism in Hollywood.

That got her fired from her agent and she handled it right out in public.

And now it looks like the Planet Doom star wants to start a music career. One based around nightmarish performance art.

She released the first video for the track RM486 Sept. 21. And while the music itself isn't really anything to deserve attention, the video is pretty terrifying.

It does have breasts in it, if that's a thing you need to worry about. But, really, that should be the least of your concerns.

Cee Lo Green's new video uses Google to talk about Robin Williams.

Don't bother Googling for Cee Lo Green's new single. He did all that work for you.

The longtime singer/rapper/the Voice judge released his newest single off this fall's upcoming record Heart Blanche July 17 through an innovative video over at Mashable.

The song, entitled Robin Williams, is an infectious tune filled with beat boxing and slight melancholy, wherein Green invites you to "laugh the pain away."

What makes the video so interesting is that ever lyric, including the "ooh"s, gets plugged into Google, showing the instant results.

If only we all had Internet connections that fast...

It's been three years since Cee Lo Green released his 2012 Christmas album Magic Moment and he's been under fire for a police investigation and questionable things he said about sexual assault.

His previous album Lady Killer (terrible title for someone under investigation for assault...) built some great music on top of classic Motown arrangements.

If Robin Williams is any indication, his next album might just hit those heights as well.

Here's the full video:

After losing a fantasy football bet (or so he says), Chuck Jose was forced to re-enact Sia's video for "Chandelier" in its entirety and in costume.

It's hard to imagine anything better than Jimmy Kimmel's attempt earlier this year, but Chuck's got all the moves down pretty well.

Well, here's your new "What Does the Fox Say."

Singer Wang Rong Rollin's video for "Chick, Chick" involves chickens and women dressed up like chickens. And most of the lyrics are just animal sounds.

What more could you ask for in an insane video from China?
