OKGO

Apparently the new thing...
Dunno if they're that huge, buuuuuuuuuuuut I've just seen their vids on MusiquePlus, yes yes yes, the crappy french music channel here... they played it! Dunno if i should be happy about it or not.... cos they'll prolly soon be branded as pop and crappy if their vids are played on Musiqueplus... :?

Anyhow, for the moment i saw it i was blissfully happy!

Discuss them here.

Nicole knows, I quite like them. Still have to find some more of their tunes, but so far so great!

They are on a fucking JC Pennys commercial, of course they're huge. I myself would never settle for JC Penny's, Macy's okay, but JC Pennys... where's the dignity in that? I don't know if you'll know what I'm talking about.

I know JC Pennys, but not Macys..... would have felt better if they'd taken the choon for GAP. GAP usually have cool adverts... bit camp, but cool...

is it just the tune they've taken or you really see them?

You see them, some little 12 year old girls (no offense) are like dancing around a bedroom, and the poster on the wall is them, then they like start playing in the poster. Yeah, pretty gay.

But Lizzi your talking about Gap? Old Navy pretty much has the gayiest commericals ever.

I think OKGO are ok. They make cool videos but they never perform live on any shows they just dance around, like they were on Good Morning America and they just danced to a recording of there song. I don't know maybe they wanted them to just do the A Million Ways dance or something I don't know.

Yeah that's the one playing on telly at the mo... am loving the pink skinny trousers...

And as for performing, i just think they give what the ppl want... i mean put them behind their guits and drums and it's nowt different from any other band... what makes them different is their vids and the choreographies... And i've seen pix from gigs and they do dance on A million ways and Here it goes again, but the rest of the tunes, they play... so they do play their instruments.

They're ace! Am loving them a lot at the mo

Good music
Good dancing
