OOTS video @ 05:15 pm

arcmorality:
New video up at U2.com. Gotta be one of the most boring U2 videos to date.

I hope they dont release the track as a CD/DVD single here in Europe.

I was about to make a post regarding that. I saw the video today on VH1, my brother called me down. He was excited.
I was disappointed. Being my favorite song on the album for one reason or another, I was hoping for something amazing visually once I heard it was being released in the US.

Yeah, it's my favorite song on the album, too.

i think the song itself is pretty boring, so the video fits.

God. This is the creepiest thing I've ever seen.

And boring.
I guess it just fits with the rest of the HTDAAB Video catalogue. :/
I didn't see the whole thing, cause I'm not a member, but is anybody from U2 in it at all?
It just looks like they took the video that plays behind them during the concert and made it...creepier.

i've not seen the video part for this song at the concerts, so have nothing to compare the finished product to. i am a full member at u2.com so was able to view the entire video. yes, bono is in the video, first as a line drawing like the mannequin and then as flesh and blood full face and shoulders shot. the others in the band are shown near the end, sort of the same as the mannequin, but in black rather than that stark white/blue, and then they too are shown in real flesh...they look amazing..well rested, no tired lines on their faces, especially adam and edge.

as for the video itself, it didnt creep me out, and i actually liked it. near the middle of it, where the chorus goes: everywhere you go you shout it....there is a pregnant woman that is wrapped in first blue then red silk or netting of some sort and you can barely make out her form through the fabric and the shots of her are quick, and intense as she swirls the fabric around her body to cover and reveal face, shoulders arms etc. i found it very beautiful actually.

its a departure from many of their videos..is nothng like the vertigo video, or the actung baby series of videos, i thought it was more similar to videos like One (restaurant), stay faraway - the softer stuff.

Hahaha, I knew I recognized that beginning baby from somewhere!
My God, it's full of stars!

The Achtung Baby scares me too. I got really freaked out when that thing opened its mouth and started talking in my concert. O_O
