Twenty One Pilots‘ “never-ending” “Level of Concern” video has set a Guinness World Record.
The clip is officially the longest music video of all time, clocking in a total run time of 177 days, 16 hours, 10 minutes and 25 seconds.
Since its premiere in June, the video has been uploading a continuous stream of fan-submitted content as “Level of Concern” played indefinitely until it finally came to an end December 16. Twenty One Pilots announced the conclusion of a project with a skit in which drummer Josh Dun accidentally unplugs a “mini server” that kept the footage going.
