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

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
