Are you Brazilian? Do you live in São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro? Consider this a spoiler alert, then. Because this is totally going to kill the surprise if you walk around a corner next week and randomly see OK Go playing on the back of a truck. Sorry for ruining it, but warning you in advance seems only right and fair if you want to catch one of these special shows. But even if you can’t make it to South America, you can still join in the fun.
You can watch Twitter and Facebook all week for exclusive videos of the guys hanging out south of the equator, but you can also participate in the project via a new microsite launched today where you can create tweet-pixelated versions of your favorite OK Go videos. The trip down south will culminate with a sure-to-be super-excellent one-song live-stream performance from the streets of Rio that will transform into the world’s first participatory tweet-pixelated video. Confused? Simply follow the instructions on the site and beam your messages and avatars in using Facebook and Twitter to watch your contributions swirl into the mix. Check out the schedule below, and stay tuned for more surprise shows we’ll announce soon, including the aforementioned live-stream event!
And, if you’re in São Paulo or Rio: please be patient. This might also be the first rock tour in history where the venue could literally get stuck in traffic instead of the audience. In the meantime, some mood music.
