Music video savants OK Go returned Thursday with a new anti-gravity dance video for their song "Upside Down & Inside Out." 

"What you are about to see is real," the video's opening shot reads. "We shot this in zero gravity, in an actual plane in the sky. There are no wires or green screens." It's a fitting opening, as the shots the band captured are pretty surreal. 

The band soars throughout the cabin, accompanied by two extraordinarily flexible flight attendants. They play around with props, breaking open piñatas and paint balloons, whipping computers and tablets through the air each other. At one point, they release a suitcase full of bouncy balls, which careen around in the cabin like bubbles in soda.

The video came with a Twitter announcement introducing the video's concept and pointing users to the band's Facebook.

It's far from the first creative video OK Go has put together. With their previous treadmill dance routine and their drone-filmed scooter chair vid, the band has rapidly gained a reputation for releasing some of the most inventive music videos around.
