OK Go Releases Oh No Special Package With Band's First-Ever DVD on November 7th Hit Single 'Here It Goes Again' Is #1 Video on iTunes for Sixth Consecutive

Week; OK Go Performs on 'The Early Show' October 26th and 'The Tonight Show

with Jay Leno' November 7th

OK Go's Headlining Tour Commences October 29th in Los Angeles



    LOS ANGELES, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- OK Go follows its series of
 imaginative videos with its first-ever full-length DVD, which will be
 released on November 7th in a special package with Oh No, the band's 2005
 CD. The DVD includes the band's homemade video for its Top 20 Modern Rock
 single, "Here It Goes Again." The video, which features the foursome doing
 a choreographed dance routine on treadmills, is still the #1 video on
 iTunes after six weeks, has been viewed over 10 million times on
 youtube.com (where it ranked as one of YouTube's Top 10 videos of all time
 after only two weeks) and has received massive play on MTV, VH1, FUSE and
 MTV Hits.
     The band will perform on "The Early Show" on October 26th and on "The
 Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on November 7th and will soon tape an
 appearance in an episode of the NBC hit series "Las Vegas," which will air
 in January. Lead singer/guitarist Damian Kulash recently guested on KROQ's
 "Loveline" and OK Go's cover of "Father Christmas" will be used in
 Unaccompanied Minors, a Warner Bros. motion picture scheduled for release
 on December 8th. Clear Channel Online will launch an OK Go Video On Demand
 landing page, which will stream six OK Go videos, beginning on November
 7th, the street date for the Oh No CD/DVD special package.
     The DVD contains the requisite traditional fare -- a documentary on the
 making of Oh No and the album's four official Capitol Records videos. But
 tradition soon goes out the window in favor of OK Go's characteristically
 madcap approach to video making, yielding a grab bag of goodies from the
 band's career to date (encompassing material from Oh No as well as OK Go's
 2002 self-titled debut). Fans can watch the evolution of the band's unusual
 dance style, beginning with an early dance routine for "C-C-C-Cinnamon
 Lips" performed on the Chicago cable TV show "Chica-go-go" in 2000 with The
 Public Radio Allstars serving as backing band and culminating with OK Go's
 homemade dance videos for "A Million Ways" and "Here It Goes Again." The
 video for "A Million Ways," which simply features the band dancing in
 Kulash's backyard, is the most-downloaded video in music history and has
 been nominated for an MTV Europe Music Award while the song is currently
 being used in Pepsi's "A Million Ways To Be You" advertising campaign.
     Highlights of the DVD include "OK Go Phenomenon V.3," a sampling of the
 more than 180 fan versions of the "A Millions Ways" dance that were
 submitted to the "OK Go Dances With You(Tube)" contest, a behind-the-scenes
 look at OK Go shooting the treadmill routine and rehearsing it for MTV's
 2006 Video Music Awards, an acoustic performance of "What To Do," shot in
 black and white with the fellows sporting a decidedly retro look, OK Go's
 three PSAs for The Federal Truth in Music Project and "There's A Fire," a
 video game within a video that segues into a scene with the video game
 characters interacting in their "real life." Live versions of "Do What You
 Want" and "You're So Damn Hot" document the band's adventures on the road,
 from autograph sessions and radio station visits to bowling and goofing off
 in numerous state parks while fans star in "Don't Ask Me," showing off
 their moves in a dance booth that OK Go brought on tour in 2002.
     OK Go will kick off an extensive North American headlining tour in Los
 Angeles on October 29th and fans can check out exclusive performance and
 interview footage from the band's upcoming Chicago tour stop when the band
 enters the AT&T Blue Room in November. After the tour concludes, OK Go will
 open for Death Cab For Cutie on a series of shows in late November.
