Car Playing Musical Instruments - I am not making this up!

Your Car Show Track of The Week has to be this awesome new Music Video for Needing/Getting from OK Go, made in partnership with Chevrolet. 

OK Go set up over 1000 instruments over two miles of desert outside Los Angeles and outfitted a Chevy Sonic with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments.

The video took 4 months of preparation and 4 days of shooting and recording. There are no ringers or stand-ins; Damian from OK Go took stunt driving lessons. 

In case you're wondering, each piano had the lowest octaves tuned to the same note so that they'd play the right note no matter where they were struck. 

OK Go thank Chevy for believing in and supporting such an insane and ambitious project, and to Gretsch for providing the guitars and amps.

YourCarShow loves this video and the track, how can it not be our Track Of The Week?!

Hopefully Damian will be on the show soon to talk about the video with the guys from OK GO!
