OK Go's "I Won't Let You Down"+ 4 More Awesome One-Take Music Videos

We wonder how many times they redo it to get the perfect take.

This isn't the first time OK Go has done a one-take music video. But if you thought it wasn't possible to top their last one, they just went ahead and did just that!

This time with the help of drones, they did elaborate floor executions captured beautifully in aerial shots. We can't stop watching it, because we honestly can't imagine how they pulled this off! And because we're in a YouTube-hopping mood, we went ahead and pulled a few more music videos that were all shot in just one take. Cray, right?

Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" had a ton of different sets, but it was actually just shot in one take all throughout. Did you notice? The sets just kind of fold into each other so with a few switches, the scenes just flow effortlessly into each other.

Nothing too complicated about Lorde's "Tennis Court" music video. But if we're talking one-take music videos, then this is definitely one! She just stares at the camera all throughout and mouths "yeah" a few times. Kind of eerie, right?

Vampire Weekend's "Oxford Comma" was also shot in just one take. Some of the members disappear and reappear throughout the music video, but cutie Ezra Koenig just keeps singing to you onscreen. Doesn't it look like a Wes Anderson film?

Feist's "1234" involves dancing and all the colors of the rainbow. Also involving some floor formations like the OK Go video, they probably rehearsed a few times before getting the perfect one-take shot!
