Between green screens and computer-generated graphics, Hollywood has a treasure trove of tools at its disposal to create visually stunning eye candy. One band, however, has decided to go au naturel as far as special effects are concerned, filming their latest music video in a zero-gravity environment aboard a parabolic aircraft.

OK Go - Upside Down & Inside Out

Hello, Dear Ones. Please enjoy our new video for "Upside Down & Inside Out". A million thanks to S7 Airlines. #GravitysJustAHabit

Alt-rock band OK Go recently teamed up with Russian carrier S7 Airlines to film the music video for their new single "Upside Down & Inside Out, " which was released exclusively on Facebook Thursday afternoon.

In a post on their website, the band explains that, although months of planning and weeks of practice were required for the shoot, the video was shot in a single take. Some footage, however, was edited out to make the weightlessness appear continuous, as the parabolic aircraft used during filming can only achieve weightlessness for 27-second periods and requires a five-minutes "reset" period between rounds.

"Because we wanted the video to be a single, uninterrupted routine, we shot continuously over the course of 8 consecutive weightless periods, which took about 45 minutes, total, " the band writes.

"We paused our actions, and the music, during the non-weightless periods, and then cut out these sections and smoothed over each transition with a morph."

The rockers also note that zero-gravity environments aren't for the faint of heart. Over 21 different flights, there were nearly 60 "puke events" amongst the cast and crew.
