Here's a post for anyone who's ever drummed on their steering wheel and thought they sounded pretty good. The band OK Go (which has previously won Internet raves for videos involving multiple treadmills and a Rube Goldberg-inspired machine in one take) used Chevrolet's new Sonic small car as a mobile instrument for a new video. GM liked it so much that they used a portion of it in a Super Bowl ad. The whole video came out on Monday. It includes the band members "playing" the (thermoformed) headliner and a retractable arm playing a series of 48 PVC pipes. Car & Driver has a cool behind-the-scenes story on the making of the video, including a breakdown of every part of the performance. After watching these guys, you may have a new, more realistic appreciation for your own musical talent ... even though all men think they can play the drum solo from "Wipeout" on their car dashboard. (And thanks to Plastics News' Detroit-based staff reporter Rhoda Miel for suggesting this post.)
We're all excellent drummers when we drive
