OK Go Are Coming for Your Views Again, Internet

You’ve never listened to an OK Go album but you’ve watched several of their videos more than once. This is the order of things. And in keeping with that order, you’re now being presented with the cinematically ambitious four-piece’s latest video, “The Writing’s on the Wall,” eight years after “Here It Goes Again” helped boost them to YouTube god status. This new clip — which follows a stop-motion toast video, an instrument-playing car, a Rube Goldberg machine, and so many more high-concept ideas — is a single-take festival of optical illusions. It’s really fun and impressive, also in keeping with the order.

Mark Ruffalo on a stand-alone Hulk movie: “I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it. When we did The Avengers it was basically ‘No!’, and now there is some consideration for it. But there’s still nothing definitive, not even a skeletal version of what it would be. I look forward to going down that road, if we could crack that nut.”

Here be photos of Jon Hamm filming the last stretch of Mad Men.

Kimmel vs. Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey in a drunken insult battle.

Resident Evil 6 is reportedly going to be the last film in the series.

Jack Coleman — the Man With Horn-Rimmed Glasses — is returning for NBC’s Heroes Reborn.
