Some People Have Too Much Time on Their Hands

I saw this incredible clip on Alex Cavanaugh’s blog a while back, and saved it for a day when I needed to come up with something cool to share in very little time … yes, sigh, it’s been “one of those days” for The Old Silly. Anyhoo, if you haven’t seen much of this quartet of very talented goofballs who call themselves “OK – Go”, this is like the best one of their routines I’ve come across. And when I was watching it, I couldn’t help but think … gosh – some people just have too much time on their hands, hmm?

Lol, but ya gotta admit – if you’re going to spend your days doing complicated and useless things that achieve and produce nothing but some mind-boggling, wacko entertainment, hey … why not try you hand at something this? …

These guys are actually a pretty darn good rock band, apparently with a delightful propensity for off-stage promotional shennanigans like this one. Hat off to them – quite creative, and what a fun way to make a living, eh?

Blog dismissed. Hope you enjoyed that, and blog back in tomorrow … I’ll make sure and set aside the time to try and come up with some brilliance of my own by then. What’s that? You doubt that’s possible?

Hmph – where’s the faith and love?

Okay joking – Toodles gang!

    Wow I hadn’t seen that before. Amazing! I remember setting up dominos in looooooooong curvy rows and enjoying watching them all knock each over with one push, but … this is like WAY over the top!

    Man I wish I were young and free enough again to have the time to pull off stuff like that. Clever guys, ya gotta admit!

    AMAZING! I’ll have to check some of their other stuff out, too …

    Have a nice day.

    That’s incredible all right. Definitely will check out some of their other stuff. Thanks for the heads-up, Marv.

    OMG, how amazing! I wouldn’t be smart enough to come up with so much!!!! (Oh, I think you will come up with something great)

  9. L. Diane Wolfe / Mar 25 2010 10:25 am

    I saw it, too! It’s just amazing.

    This kind of stuff fascinates me. I only wish I were creative and patient enough to come up with something like this. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow.

    • theoldsilly / Mar 25 2010 6:12 pm

      Yep. And tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, … lol.

    Wow if I could make a living playing R&R and goofing off like that all day I’d, I’d … I don’t know what I’d do – except have a blast!

    The amount of time this would have taken to set up makes my brain hurt. Very, very cool.

  13. Alex J. Cavanaugh / Mar 25 2010 12:39 pm

    Thanks for the mention, Marvin! I still think that is just incredible.

  14. Leeuna / Mar 25 2010 2:58 pm

    Awesome. I wonder how long it took those guys to set all that up. Thanks Marvin.

    This is great. At first I thought it had to somehow be put together using some kind of software, but it was done live. Still doubt the guys got a date out of it though.

      You kidding me? This is a rock band, dude – they got groupies, man! It’s the life? (wink)

    I was told I have too much time on my hands because of my blog. Humph! They obviously have not seen this video!

  17. Marcus Franks / Mar 25 2010 6:17 pm

    Woa – now THAT’s way cool!

  18. Enid Wilson / Mar 25 2010 10:39 pm

    That’s a darn good set up! And the music suits it to the T.

    That is an impressive engineering feat. A lot of Physics. I sure like the band’s song and video. I’d seen two other music videos by this band, and they’re all very good.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Tasha
