Even if you’ve seen This Too Shall Pass, the 2010 instant classic from inventive band Ok Go, it’s a great video to watch again (and again).

With the help of SyynLabs, director James Frost, and the support of almost 60 people (from core builders to people helping to reset machines) OK Go put together a massive Rube Goldberg setup that includes bowling balls, barrels, sledgehammers, umbrellas, legos, a car, an unfortunate piano, and paint cannons.

This Too Shall Pass also has an “official” video:

And of course, it’s fun to watch these related OK Go viral hits again, too: their breakout single Here It Goes Again, and Three Primary Colors for Sesame Street.

More Rube Goldberg machines are in the archives.

Top Secret Drum Corps is a precision drum corps based in Basel, Switzerland. With 25 drummers and colorguard members, the corps became famous for its demanding six-minute routine performed at the Edinburgh Tattoo in 2003. With its invitation to Edinburgh, Top Secret became one of the first non-military, non-British Commonwealth acts to perform on the Esplanade at Edinburgh Castle.
