OK Go have launched “Needing/Getting”, a music video made in partnership with Chevrolet connected with the Chevy Sonic Stunts campaign. OK Go set up over 1000 instruments over two miles of desert outside Los Angeles. A Chevy Sonic was outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, and the band recorded this version of Needing/Getting, singing as they played the instrument array with the car.

The Needing/Getting stunt video took 4 months of preparation and 4 days of shooting and recording. There are no ringers or stand-ins. Damian took stunt driving lessons. Each piano had the lowest octaves tuned to the same note so that they’d play the right note no matter where they were struck. For more information and to download the studio version of the song for free, visit LetsDoThis.com/stunts and www.okgo.net. Many thanks to Chevy for believing in and supporting such an insane and ambitious project, and to Gretsch for providing the guitars and amps.
