OK Go - I Won't Let You Down - Music Video

This is one of the most amazing music videos ever.

Rock group OK Go have been dazzling us with their super-creative videos for years. Their latest, for the single "I Won't Let You Down," continues that trend by featuring a cast of hundreds, Honda UNI-CUB personal transport devices and a lot of Japanese school girls holding brightly-colored umbrellas.

The five-minute video was shot in one continuous shoot and required 50 or 60 takes to get it perfect, Billboard reports. Japanese director Morihiro Harano revealed some insider details as to how the mind-boggling project was created, including the use of a camera-equipped drone to enable birds-eye view shots of the impressive synchronised umbrella scenes.

The manual and GPS-controlled drone was taken half a mile into the air for the video's final shot, which sees more than 1,500 volunteers hold brightly colored umbrellas to make up "pixels" of a staggering LED ticker-style display.

LYRICS:
I won’t let you down, no I won’t let you down. I won’t let you down, my love.

Nikki, she’s got no flag to fly, but she don’t seem to mind that much, no she don’t seem to mind.

And you, you’ve got your armor on. Nights out in babylon, yeah, nights out in babylon.
But maybe all you need is someone to trust, maybe all you need is someone.
And I won’t let you down, no I won’t let you down. I won’t let you down, my love.
I won’t let you down.

Now Emily’s got no tricks to try, but she don’t seem that much to mind, no she don’t seem to mind that much to me.

And you’ve got what the whole world wants, so strap that armor tighter on, double on down like it’s gonna make you free.
But maybe all you need is someone to trust, maybe all you need is someone.
And I won’t let you down, no I won’t let you down. I won’t let you down, my love.

I won’t let you down.
