Battle of the videos: WITS version 1 vs version 2

I pick version 2. I liked the meaning behind the first version, but prefer this "U218: U2 remembers the early years" video.

They're both two of the worst music videos I've ever seen in my life. I can't choose.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Version one is cool for the messages you can throw on it.

But Version 2 is friggin' awesome visually. Whereas video 1 gives me a strong feeling of 'eh,', the 3D effects on video 2 are just plain awesome.

Video 2.

On an unrelated note, good to see the video side of U2 picking up lately, with OOTS, Saints and now WITSx2.

I would go for version 1. Version 2 gives me a bit of a headache in some spots in the video.

Version 2 had the right idea but was done horribly, so I'd go Version 1.

Because Version 1 could have been used for a MasterCard commercial.
