The music video masters at OK Go combined stop-motion with 500 printers for one of the most amazing music videos you'll see this year.

So amazing, even, that it breaks YouTube and comes with a full-blown seizure warning. Yes, for real. “This video has a lot of flashing colors. If you’re susceptible to seizures, be careful, please," writes the band. "Your viewing experience will look significantly better if you manually set your YouTube resolution settings to 1440p or 2160p (for desktop, click the gear icon in the lower right). Just leaving it on 'Auto HD' results in some pretty intense distortion during a few sections, because when the colors and patterns get crazy, there’s actually just too much information flying by for YouTube’s normal HD compression. We broke the matrix. The good people of YouTube have been working with us to solve this (it’s a bit rate limitation issue) over the last 24 hours, but there’s no quick fix."
