The rock band OK Go has released another made-in-Echo Park music video. Unlike the group’s last video, This Too Shall Pass, which was recorded indoors in a Glendale Boulevard warehouse, the new End Love video was staged entirely outdoors by Echo Park Lake, where some elaborate, stop-action choreography attracted the attention of a goose or two (or is that a big duck?) during the shooting at the end of March. Echo Park residents Shirley Moyers and AJ Schnack once again served as producers of the video, which made its YouTube debut today. Apparently the couple prefers working close to home.
Update: About the goose … it is known to some park regulars as Maria but was dubbed Orange Bill during the video shoot. Moyers said that Maria – who makes guest appearances throughout the video – was not intimidated by four men prancing around in brightly colored sweat suits:
“At first she seemed to be trying to chase them away, very territorial when they were rehearsing their moves, and then after a couple of days she adopted them. You can’t see it because we pushed in, but she actually followed them from the sleeping bags all the way around the park to back near the pump house when you can see her again through the end of the video. When we finally finished and I sat down on the grass to have a little meeting with the guys, she sat down behind them and went to sleep. That goose owns that park!”
