American rock band OK Go appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night where they gave a superb performance of their latest hit single ‘The One Moment‘. A performance made even better with Stephen Colbert himself singing with the band for the last third of the song.
A performance that, sure, Colbert looked nervous while doing but, man, did that bring a smile to my face.
As for OK Go’s ‘The One Moment‘, it’s one of those anthem songs a lot of bands seem to love doing nowadays, and it’s originally from the band’s 2014 album Hungry Ghosts.
The song is making a resurgence this month, though, as OK Go have just released an astounding video for it.
A video that was just an initial 4.2 seconds of footage that was then slowed down to create a 4-minute video and all of it was completely in sync with the song (see NPR explain it here).
Watch OK Go perform ‘The One Moment‘ on and with Stephen Colbert below, and then watch the awesome official video for the track below that. Now that is a video that deserves a billion views.
Edit: Sadly, Stephen Colbert has deleted the video of OK Go’s live performance (his people delete most music videos from his site, hence why we don’t embed them anymore). So I have substituted a lovely performance OK Go gave at KINK Radio soon after.
