OK Go Goes Zero Gravity

For their latest music video, OK Go teamed up with Russia’s S7 airlines and took a trip in their vomit comet, a plane that flies in parabolic arcs to train cosmonauts for low-gravity space flight. The song is “Upside Down & Inside Out.” Watch the video at the band's website.

From the band’s FAQ:

The longest period of weightlessness that it is possible to achieve in these circumstances is about 27 seconds, and after each period of weightlessness, it takes about five minutes for the plane to recover and prepare for then next round. 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. 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 rest of the story about making the video is pretty interesting. For example, they made 21 flights, and there were 58 incidences of actual vomiting. -via Buzzfeed
