OK Go Makes Music In A Chevy

Indie rock and the Super Bowl? Thanks to Chevy and Goodby Silverstein & Partners, they do indeed mix.

OK Go set up over 1000 instruments spread out over two miles of desert near Los Angeles. A Chevy Sonic was outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, and the band recorded this version of “Needing/Getting,” singing as they played the instrument array with the car.

“Car advertising, so long a well-polished mirror of contemporaneous trends in America, adjusts to suit the changing times,” writes Car and Driver.
