The band OK Go is legendary for their innovative music videos, but their latest release is the first time that they’ve ever broken YouTube itself. The music video for “Obsession” utilizes over 500 printers to create aÂ kaleidoscopic effect and limited stop-motion animation of the band. As the band explained on Twitter, the normal HD compression of YouTube couldn’t keep up with theÂ avalanche of colors and imagery, which is why the video is also available to watch atÂ 1440p or 2160p quality. And anyone who needs to avoid flashing lights should probably not watch the video at all.
