OK Go - "I Won't Let You Down" Video
Videos for Engineers

OK Go "I Won't Let You Down" video - RF Cafe Video  for EngineersOK Go is perhaps best known for sophisticated videos that require extremely high levels of choreography. Their I Won't Let You Down video was posted on YouTube just yesterday and it has nearly 2.5 million views a day later. Back in 2010 I posted their Mousetrap-like This Too Shall Pass video; it now has more than 45 million views.

OK Go "I Won't Let You Down" video umbrella count - RF CafeTwo major aspects of high technology are featured here: Honda's UNI-CUB β robotic unicycle and the use of a remote control octocopter drone for filming the video. Honda is not selling the UNI-CUB β yet, so the company must have been involved in the effort. The I Won't Let You Down video is featured on the Honda website. Obviously inspired by the Segway scooter, the self-stabilized, gesture-controlled unicycle's talents are aptly demonstrated by OK Go band Honda UNI-CUB robotic unicycle - RF Cafemembers. Although you never see the octocopter itself, you can easily imagine a camera suspended from the airborne platform as it flies smoothly and effortlessly at various positions and Hubsan H107D FPV X4 Mini RTF Quadcopter - RF Cafealtitudes. Personal versions for peeking in your neighbor's window* can be bought for under $200, but the type used for filming this video likely costs more than $20k not including the camera.

Artistically, training and coordinating more than 2,300 (see my counting image) Japanese schoolgirls with colored umbrellas is a monumental challenge, but it comes off extremely impressively. How many hours must have been invested in creating and producing this video that ends up running for 5 minutes and 20 seconds? (rhetorically asked, of course)

OK Go: Hungry Ghosts - RF Cafe Videos for EngineersThe song, "I Won't Let You Down," comes from OK Go's CD titled, "Hungry Ghosts."

Here are the lyrics, in case you care. 

OK Go - I Won't Let You Down

Just another grey autumn day
You're the sunshine trying to break through
No I never imagined that my path would lead to you
A look in your eyes as they met mine
Seem to say we're the same
In so many ways
Though we're worlds apart
I will promise you

I won't let you down
No I won't let you down

There are so many reasons to keep us apart
But it won't stop me losing
My mind or my heart
What would I give
To touch your hand
Oh just feel your skin
I'd breathe you in
Could this ever be
You'll be next to me

No I won't let you down
No I won't let you down

I know myself so well
But I've never been here before
You're just out of my reach
But I will be here
Of that you can be sure
Can be sure

It's another grey autumn day
You're the sunshine trying to break through
I can only imagine that I'm walking with you
I realize if you were mine
We may fall apart
Oh you'd have my heart
There's too many things between you and me

No I won't let you down
No I won't let you down
No I won't I won't let you down
No I won't let you down
No I won't I won't let you down
No I won't I won't let you down
No I won't I won't let you down
No I won't let you down
