Funniest DVD moment

I finally got around to watching the DVD last night, and all i can say is... WOW!

aside from the amazing performance by the band, i noticed a few very funny moments. my personal favorite comes during the "Making of the DVD" segment. The narrator comments that during rehearsals, Bono was concerned about saving his voice. They then cut to a shot of that long-haired road-crew guy walking down the heart ramp singing a VERY off-key version of "With or Without You"- he's obviously filling in for Bono during the rehearsal. it's just too funny- especially if you've ever seen this guy at a show (i think his name is Rocco (?), and he's always SO SERIOUS!).

did anyone notice any other funny moments?

I think its pretty funny when during "New York" Bono sings the line about "a can of mace" and then he does a *spraying a can of mace* motion with his finger. silly, but it made me laugh.

Rocco? You don't mean "THE" Rocco do you?

sorry, only seen it once, but I believe around the middle of the show I love Bono's reaction to an object flung at him from the audience...whacks two fingers up at the offender and carries on..

I think the funniest thing is in the credits (on the second DVD I think) where under all the crew for the different cameras it says:
BONOCAM- Cameraman- Bono

There's also a good dowsing caught on the "Zoo Tv Sydney" video, just after "Running to Stand Still", when Bono is walking back to the main stage on the catwalk. In this case, he does'nt even flinch, just keeps walkin'...

Not only that, but if you look closely, you can clearly see Bono mouthing "F*** You!" Great stuff

Haha, I'm with the two finger moment too, classic! Although that Irish temper has been worse, like in the Dublin show in 97 when he got a laser in the eye and he really did shout down the microphone that he'd fuckin sort the guy out

He got smacked in the face with a glass of water/beer at Slane2 too, all he said was "I hope that was water" or something, feck though, he gets lotsa stuff, not just flowers and that shit, thrown at him
