Take that, Einstein! ‘Ok Go’ film mesmerizing zero gravity music video in Russia

Quirky pop band 'Ok Go' has shot its latest music video in zero gravity, surpassing their own previous efforts at creating exciting visual material.

The foursome travelled to Russia to be literally turned upside down for the music video to their track Upside Down & Inside Out.

The group spent more than two hours in a state of weightlessness at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center outside Moscow, creating this amazing, gravity-defying spectacle:

The video for Upside Down & Inside Out has been released on the same day scientists confirmed they have finally proven Einstein’s 100-year-old theory about gravitational waves. (And in case you have no clue what gravitational waves are, here’s our handy primer.)

The band’s previous videos include the foursome on motorized scooter chairs accompanied by an array of dancers in a brilliantly co-ordinated spectacle in Japan. In another video they used optical illusions, and a chevy fitted with retractable pneumatic arms to play an array of instruments while driving in a desert outside LA.

The band are most renowned, however, for their “treadmill dance” in Here It Goes Again
