Stuck in a godawful video

This will be absolutely no news to US residents, but I'm currently watching the 'football' version of the Stuck In A Moment video. And at first I actually thought this was somebody's idea of a U2 parody, that's how bad it is.

Like the whole fucking song boiled down to a game of football. Blah...

Ha! Looks more like gridiron to me, but I'm no sports buff.

It's a pretty sucky video, but Edge singing upside down is hilarious.

Edge slipping on the nachos is pretty funny too...but it has that "awwwwwwww..." factor as well.

And Larry cheering!!!! Wow!!!!! He is studalicious!!!!

Oh My God. The video is soooo bad. I couldn't belive it the first time I saw it. I was like "This can't be U2". The only stuff that I liked was the names of the players. "Paul Hewson" etc. Of course, only us die hards would understand that. They should have used the video on the DVD. That would have been 100% better.

Is there a different (better) European video???

The European video is different AND better. The whole Bono getting thrown out of the back of a van, people walking over him, Edge reaching down to help....it fits the song much better. *sigh* Too bad they felt they had to dumb it down for the US.

I'm actually not sure what is so 'European' about the European version, but it strikes me as the better of the two.

The whole Paul Hewson/Dave Evans/Lemons vs. Flies thing with the commentator at the start is really cringeworthy.

Anyway, this is all so so old, and my apologies for starting it. Just that tonite appears to be the first-ever screening of this abomination here on Australian TV.

and all the catalogues
I can't wait to buy it
no matter what it costs
The whistle of the sniper
the crashing of the bombs
put a spring back in my step
keeps me feeling young

And all this shopping is a curse
everytime it's getting worse
I got bullets in my hairdo
and holes in my purse..."

I'd rather have had the other version, but I'm not complaining. Can never go wrong with Larry tummy.

My thoughts exactly. I really don't like the video, but Edge is a cutie in it. His eyes look very green.
