This Too Shall Pass!

This video is amazing. I read that it took over 60 hours to make it because they had to do so many takes. I really like the lyrics. "You know you can't keep letting it get you down... And you can't keep dragging that dead weight around. Let it go. This too shall pass." Here is another version of it that I love, although nothing compares to this Rube Goldberg machine version.

The homemade video for OK Go's first single, "A Million Ways" became the most downloaded music video in history. And their dancing on treadmills video for the song "Here It Goes Again" was the top favorited music video of all time on YouTube, and won the YouTube Award in the Most Creative category in 2006. I hate it when songs swear though, and while the word in this song is more forgivable, the awesome treadmill video takes Christ's name in vein which I really hate. I love their creativity though! Here's a "behind the scenes" video of how they made it.

On a completely different note, if you want a chance to win a Janome sewing or embroidery machine, (I do!!!) check this out!

Those videos crack me up!! I get what you mean about swearing in songs. I swear like a sailor but i don't like it in songs.
