Different sections of the video are filmed at different speeds.

Bafflingly, a search on YouTube for 'OK go the one moment' didn't turn this up for me. Bunch of ripped songs came up though.
Edit 2: Ah, it's 'unlisted'. Also, I've read a few of the comments on the youtube video, so you don't have to. It's still the worst bit of the internet.
I never really learned spreadsheets, so for most of the (very simple) work I have to do that would involve spreadsheets, I use AWK.
Will you? I've learned plenty of programming tools and I recoil in disgust at the sight of them - of all the bullshit you need to jump through to get anything done, and the arcane (and constantly changing!) knowledge you need to have to make it work. Spreadsheets are pretty much the best tool out there for exploratory work with numbers.
And because the masses don't think of it as "programming", they still build suprisingly complex models and tools within the spreadsheets, when otherwise they'd likely be scared away.
Personally, I'm in a process of learning Excel in depth - the more I work with it, the more I like it. It's like a REPL for moderate-complexity data processing and visualization.
As do I.
>Spreadsheets are pretty much the best tool out there for exploratory work with numbers.
That's an ideal use of a spreadsheet. A non-ideal use would be, say, re-inventing the RDBMS in Excel (perhaps the most common one, but there are far worse sins).
>Personally, I'm in a process of learning Excel in depth
I would, but I don't have the time. As I've said: with the sort of data analysis I'm doing (very little), AWK works well enough.
I think I have all their albums, I love their videos and their music is often pretty good. I suppose I should know his name. (Edit: Damien)
"It is not all one speed, but each section is at a constant rate, meaning that time does not “ramp” (accelerate or decelerate). We just toggle from one speed to another. When the guitars explode, we are 200x slower than reality (6,000 frames per second), but Tim and Andy’s short bursts of lip sync (Tim twice and Andy once) are only 3x slower than real life (90 frames per second). The watermelons are around 150x, and the spray paint cans are a little over 60x."
What role did Morton Salt play, and what is
Morton Salt have recently launched a campaign to
support a group of people who are bravely making
a positive difference in the world. They’ve
pledged funding and assistance to incredibly
inspiring and effective young innovators who are
tackling difficult issues like the global water
crisis, the plight of young female refugees,
systemic failures in arts and music education,
and children’s health and wellness education.
The slogan for this campaign is #WalkHerWalk, a
reference to the girl in their iconic logo, and
you can learn more about the innovators and the
many facets of the campaign at
Morton was moved by the message of “The One
Moment,” and felt it captured the spirit of
what they are trying to do with #WalkHerWalk, so
they reached out to us and asked if we were
interested in making art with their salt – a
video that could fly the banner for their
initiative. We were impressed with their efforts
to support positive change, so we proposed this
idea, and together we collaborated to bring this
video to life.
> blockquoted text
but even that is imperfect; is there some reason that HN doesn't support actual blockquotes? has it just not been done, or is there some objection to it?
I know that perhaps egregious formatting can be detrimental, but blockquotes seem to be one of those formatting things that is extremely useful in discourse…
The lines max out at 75 characters. (`fold --spaces --width 75`) But I'll nudge it down to 60. (Now 50)
Also, the apparent lack of regard for personal safety irks me a little. Wear some eye protection, dudes!
The fact that they were confident enough to not wear eye protection is one more thing that makes it impressive. I mean, certainly they have an insurance company that would want to see that they are being safe, right?
The first few seconds are legit, then the flipbook synchs up and you have that "oh wow" moment that sadly I am coming more and more to associate with "no wait, it's bogus."
Great song and great video clip, though, even if it's not "real".
It's unlisted on YT for some reason
The early Michael Jackson clips when morphing and digital editing was still in its infancy are also still really cool to look at (particularly "Black & White")
They may seem really dated and cheesy now, but in their day, it was pretty cutting edge stuff.

It's a really cool effect -- except for a few bits where objects fall upwards and the like, there's nothing too strikingly "off" about the motion in the video, but you can tell that something's up. It doesn't form an uncanny valley, though -- there's still an overarching "organic" feeling to the thing.

We did replace the baity title with the article's first sentence. (That's in accordance with the HN guideline that asks to not use original titles when they're clickbait.)
