OK Go Slows Down ‘The One Moment’ for Morton Salt’s #GivingTuesday. Since then,'Here It Goes Again' has tallied another 34 million views, making it the band’s most popular video (if you add back all the missing views). If you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth a watch, if only to see how many brands and creators have copied various aspects. The eye-catching results has already received 15.2 million views on Facebook, where videos typically get 50% of their total views on Day 1, and another 5 million on YouTube, where videos typically get 20% of their total views on Day 1.

If you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth a watch, if only to see how many brands and creators have copied various aspects.
Nevertheless, the band soldiered on – demonstrating conclusively that they weren’t a one-hit wonder by making a series of follow-on hits, including, ‘This Too Shall Pass‘ (54.3M views), ‘Needing/Getting‘ (36.8M views), ‘I Won’t Let You Down‘ (31.1M views), and ‘Upside Down & Inside Out‘ (51.3M views).
Then, a few days ago, the band uploaded ‘The One Moment – Official Video” to Facebook as well as to YouTube. Their latest music video uses slowmo to slow down 4.2 seconds of real action across a video that is 4 minutes and 12 seconds long. The eye-catching results has already received 15.2 million views on…
