with Jay Leno' November 7th

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.
