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.

OK Go is trying to out weird itself once again.

The band known for their creative, over-the-top music videos involving treadmills, drones and Rube Goldberg machines wants to release their latest album "Hungry Ghosts" as DNA.

Lead singer Damian Kulash met with a biochemist at UCLA who successfully converted a book into DNA, so he got the idea to do the same with his music.

In addition to figuring out how to translate the songs into genetic code, there is also the issue of distribution - which they say could simply be a small vial with a few drops of water containing the strands.

"Obviously, it's an artistic gesture and a scientific project, not the most efficient way to actually buy our album," said Kulash.

So it's unlikely that deoxyribonucleic acid will kill the mp3 star anytime soon.

OK Go is back with a new video for their single "I Won't Let You Down," and it's as over the top as you might expect.

Always seemingly trying to one-up themselves, their latest masterpiece is shot via drone, and follows the guys on robotic unicycles as they partake in a massive, synchronized umbrella dance.

Music Video of the Day: For their latest music video-slash-Chevy Super Bowl ad, OK Go drove down a two-mile stretch of desert lined with 1,000 instruments in a Chevy Sonic fitted with retractable pneumatic arms to perform a very complicated version of "Needing/Getting" that took four months to prep and four days to shoot.
