There’s often a misdirected nostalgia for the days when MTV actually played music videos. But those who mourn the loss of Total Request Live often forget: it’s pretty boring to watch most music videos. But one thing that is missing from the loss of music on MTV is the national discussion about what music videos are cool. No one is watching the same videos anymore, so there’s no talk about the new dances, costumes, or sets like there was back in the day when Missy Elliott released her latest on TRL. That’s why it’s so refreshing to see Ok Go’s music video for “Writing’s on the Wall.” The band that started out making videos of choreographed dances in their backyard and gained their fame leveling up with a choreographed dance on treadmills understands the nearly lost art form.
