This video just makes me smile every time I watch it. The song is pretty catchy, too!



They are the same chaps that did the treadmill video here:

It's a pretty cool video. I heard on another show that it was done all in one shot, with one camera following the mayhem, which makes it even more amazing.

you've seen their other video for the song, right?

In the very beginning, you wonder why the guy is red. They probably had to go through it a few times until they got it right.

As you watch through it, you can see broken TVs and a broken piano in the background - I'm assuming those are all from past takes.

More info on the making of it...

i wondered exactly the same thing the first time i watched it :-) from what i understand, there were something on the order of 70 partial takes. some of those stopped after just the first few dominos went down, and were easy to reset. some stopped significantly further in, at which point resetting would be highly nontrivial...
