MIT Alums Direct New OK Go Video

Posted in: Best of the Blogs, Life & Culture

You know the band OK Go, right? You remember, the guys with the treadmill video, and the Rube Goldberg machine video, and the marching band video (among many others)?

OK Go has a new video for their song "End Love," and it is directed by two of my MIT classmates, Jeff Lieberman '00 and Eric Gunther '00. Check it out!

UPDATE: Another OK Go video has been directed by MIT alums! The video for "Last Leaf" was done by Nadeem Mazen '06 and Ali Mohammad SM '06. Here it is:

I saw this video with the colorful people on the home page of youtube yesterday.

Thought it was very creative and was wondering who the makers were...

Now it makes sense - It has the MIT "quality/flavor/thinking/uniqueness" in it smile - Right brained creativity mixed with left brained technology skills

What major did these guys take while they were at MIT?

Posted by: genius ('18) on June 20, 2010

^ According to the alum directory, it looks like Lieberman was 8+18 undergrad (and later went into MAS at MIT), and Gunther was course 6.

Go figure ^.^

Too funky! :D I really liked the treadmill video.

I have a quick question about admissions... You probably get a lot of these, but here goes:

My school is implementing a 5.0 weighted grading scale next year, and I was wondering if MIT considers weighted GPA or unweighted GPA in its admissions decisions? Thanks!

Of course Jeff would do this.
