Love. Them.

I love crazy creative people.

And that is probably why I love these guys...

Ok, they really take some risks, right? I mean, can you just picture this planning session. Someone  says, "Hey! I have an idea. Why don't we have a big marching band go tromping around a field?"

And then someone pipes up to add, "Sure sure. That would be great. But what we really need are some Random Grass People to leap up and join in. Yep. That will do it."

These guys are awesome. Anyone else a fan?

And how 'bout this one...

They kind of remind me of the teletubbies. (but I still love it)

I can't seem to tear my eyes away from this one...

How do they come up with this stuff? Amazing, right? So. Amazing. I love the messages written with their feet at the end.

My kids love to watch this one....actually they love all of them. But my boys definitely love this machine....

And are you kidding me? Ok Go AND The Muppets? How cool is that....

I often hear Patricia Lee Gauch in my head.  "Go crazy!" she told us over and over again at Chautauqua. And she's right. Just go crazy.  Think big. Take risks.  With everything. Why not? Try something new. Step out of your comfort zone! 

Ok Go could have made lame moody videos that you watched once and never wanted to see again. But  instead they used Random Grass People.  Yep. They went crazy. And I think it has worked rather well for them. 

Maybe my book needs some Random Grass People...


  1. I've never even heard of OK Go, but I loved these videos. Riley made me watch the one with the machine twice. The part with the glasses making the music was the best.

  2. That's funny Erin, the one thing that sticks in my head from Patty is exactly that "Go Crazy!"
    These are really cool vid's by the way...

  3. I'd love to come up with something even half that creative.

  4. Holy. Freakin. Crap. I LOVE THEM! wow..... i really like the second one... it is my fav.

  5. Seriously? That's so cool! I watched the first 3 videos before I realized that it was all the same people! The first one is my favorite! One of those tunes that gets pumping in your blood!
