Confession: I have no idea what the cardio room at my university’s gym looks like. Actually, I have no idea what the gym looked like at all. I generally tried to avoid meatheads lifting weights and airheads on treadmills the best I could. But if I knew I could’ve been joined by this guy dancing on the treadmills, I would’ve have come running. There’s nothing better than pretending you’re in an Ok Go video with someone else.
And if you thought it was only humans hitting the gym to slim down, think again. This raccoon wants to look good, so he decided to join his friend (or maybe owner? He’s on a leash, but I don’t know why anyone would have a pet raccoon) for a jaunt on the treadmill. If he adds weights to his workout regime, I bet he’ll be able to achieve his goalby spring!
Normally I hate raccoons, but this little guy is totally adorable. Check out the video to see him do his thing!
This cat is more dedicated than most people. While many struggle to get up in the morning and clock in an hour on their treadmill, this cat is super gung-ho about his daily routine. He’s unstoppable. Although he can’t keep up with his owner for the full cycle, when she slows it down for his he walks right back on.
At first I wasn’t sure why this guy had to run on a treadmill to do an impression of a “really, really nice guy.” But as he started running faster and faster, I suddenly got it. He reminded me so much of the awkward boys I knew in high school.
So next time you see a nice guy running after you because you dropped something, make sure you stop and give him the time. Not only will he not fall over and hurt himself, he might just end up being your new BFF.
OK Go loves making people smile with their epic music videos but decided to spread longer-lasting joy to people’s lives by creating an
unsuccessful amusing dating site. OK Go teamed up with CollegeHumor to create OK Go-Pid, a matchmaking service. Once you fill out your online profile, OK Go will print it, crumple it into a tiny ball and throw it into a “signature mechanical computational device.” That sounds impressive and scientific. The rigorous steampunk device uses dominoes, tunnels and balloons to reveal your random and unreliable match.
During the testimonials, no one seems satisfied with their partner but they all admit it’s really cool to watch the process!! What’s compatibility anyway over the word of OK Go? I mean, these are the guys who made that awesome video where they run on treadmills. Who can argue with them?
Now if only the website was real.
