WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- The newest music video from the band OK Go features the four musicians performing perfectly choreographed moves in zero gravity.

Filmed on an S7 plane over Russia, the colorful clip for the song "Upside Down & Inside Out" from their album Hungry Ghosts, involved spins, flips and dozens of balloons filled with paint.

"What you are about to see is real," reads a message before the video, posted to Facebook, begins. "We shot this in zero gravity, in an actual plane, in the sky. There are no wires or green screen."

Speaking with CNN after the fact, band frontman Damian Kulash described the physical sensation caused by the plane as it flew in large parabolas to achieve desired effect as "difficult" and causing "a lot of fear and panic."

And although members of the production crew experienced about "58 vomiting events," the band completed the video almost seamlessly, with the parts showing the plane repositioning itself sliced out.
