OK Go's 'I Won't Let You Down' Video is a Must-See

View Comments(0)

I'm not much of an OK Go fan, but I can (and do) appreciate a great music video. The band recently released a video for their newest single, "I Won't Let You Down," and it doesn't disappoint. It was shot using a camera on a drone and features dozens of people who use brightly-colored umbrellas to make a visually appealing choreographed dance routine. The video ends with shots so eleborate, it took 44 takes to get right (to be fair, there were 2,328 people in it, according to Rolling Stone).

This isn't the first creative music video for the band, either. This is kind of their thing.

Like that time they were the masters of illusion...

Taylor Swift Releases White Noise

Taylor Swift fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of her new album, 1989, which is set to be released Oct. 27. Taylor has been casually releasing teasers from some of the album's songs, including track names, lyrics, and straight up releasing new songs (which are, apparently, about Harry Styles from One Direction). So things have been happening for T. Swift fans, which is why people got really, really excited when a new song popped up on iTunes simply called "Track 3." Without even bothering to preview the song, thousands of fans purchased the single... only to find out that the track was actually 8 seconds of white noise. Naturally, the song reached number 1 on iTunes in Canada.

If you've been eagerly awaiting to hear something new from One Direction, you're in luck: the band today announced their On the Road Again Tour dates for 2015.

The boys will launch their new tour in July 2015 in San Diego, CA, then visit states across the country before concluding in Boston, MA, in September 2015. But let's be real: with a new album on the way, more dates are probably on the horizon.

World Series 2014: Is Game 2 is a must-win for the Royals?

World Series image

The 2014 World Series began last night with Game 1 in Kansas City. After just five batters, the Giants already had a 3-0 lead and never looked back, taking a one game to none lead in the series. For the Royals, losing the first game of the World Series hurt, but would losing Game 2 be the death-blow to their chances of being crowned champions?

Yes - Game 2 is a must-win for the Royals

No one wants to lose the first two games of a postseason series, but losing them on your home field hurts even more. The Royals have the home-field advantage in the series thanks to the American League's win in this season's All-Star Game (a ridiculous reason, but that's a discussion for a different day), and if they lose Game 2, that will completely blow a great opportunity. San Francisco's AT&T Stadium is one of the toughest stadiums to play in for a road team in Major League Baseball, and winning at least two games there would be a tough task.

Since the league went to the 2-3-2 format for the World Series, there have been 13 teams that lost the first two games of the series at home. Of those teams, eight of them ended up getting swept and only three ended up going on to win the series.
