This mind-blowing video, “The One Moment,” from Chicago rock band OK Go shows more than musical Orchestration – it shows life’s Orchestration. OK Go’s thoroughly crafted music videos paired with upbeat, catchy songs tend to go viral immediately when they hit YouTube. They have a knack for striking a chord in humans right along with their musical chords. With more than 25 million views, this video and its Rube Goldberg-machine-inspired wonder is well worth the watch.
The song behind this incredible video digs into something deeper that parallels perfectly with the visual cues. Frontman Damian Kulash explains in the video’s credits that the song is a “celebration of (and a prayer for) those moments in life when we are most alive. Humans are not equipped to understand our own temporariness; it will never stop being deeply beautiful, deeply confusing, and deeply sad that our lives and our world are so fleeting. We have only these few moments. Luckily, among them there are a few that really matter, and it’s our job to find them.”
