“Level of Concern” clocked in at a total of 177 days, 16 hours, 10 minutes and 25 seconds, running from June 21 to December 16 on YouTube. The duo originally released the single in April 2020, but two months later, Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun set out to break this record. They invited fans to create their own music videos for the song, and it became a looping livestream on YouTube that would play a different music video every time the song would start again.
The previous record holder was Pharrell‘s 24-hour music video for “Happy,” which saw new groups of people dancing to the 2013 hit whenever the song would start again.
The record-setting “Level of Concern” video is unfortunately no longer available, so watch the original three-minute version on YouTube instead.
Elsewhere in music, Daft Punk quietly released the “Complete Edition” of their Tron: Legacy soundtrack.
