I take back what I've said about the Stuck In A Moment football video in the past!

Just watched it after quite a while. It's a funny video. Bono's doing his mexican waves and his typical "overcome by emotion" facial expressions and sways. Edge keeps slipping and falling and refuses to get up. Larry's cheering like a mad man. Adam's hardly watching the game, just coolly reading a sports daily with ironically a soccer story on the front page. The best part of the whole video is the ending when one of the referees, I think, calmly hits the ball thru the posts.

I've always hated this video cos they look so silly and the whole Flys vs. Lemons thing seemed kinda lame to me. And I probably also let my "meh" feeling for american football cloud my judgment of the video. But it's a nice light-hearted video where the band are just taking it easy.

You finally warm up to something post 1998 and it's this? You break my heart.

Would you hate it as much if it featured soccer/football instead? I don't think so.

It's a horrible video, but it's funny. I still love Edge possibly cracking his skull on the stairs while still on the ground singing.

It's not as bad as Elevation or Vertigo.

This version is just very bad. It wanted to be an original video, it ended with something with a bad taste.

...Unlike the "van version", much more simple, and artistically better.

I thought that was the kicker from earlier.


If the video didn't have the John Madden intro it would be almost perfect.

Exactly. See, he's all old and stuff now, and after reliving his moment of failure for umpteen zillion years, he gets to kick the ball through the goalposts!

And when the kicker turns into the postman at the end, it's in tribute to Bono's father who was a postman. See? It makes sense now.

I don't get why people hate this video. It's U2 being unpretentious for once. You guys would rather have another weird video with masses of overturned boxes of lemons or people staring at lightbulbs?

Nukka please. Sorry the Euroboobs and Southeast Asiacrats on this board don't enjoy American football.

U2 being unpretentious worked in Discotheque because it was (a) funny and (b) creatively directed. This video was neither.

I watch and enjoy American Football, but unfortunately it didn't make this video any better. That they shelved a Radioheadesque video (of Radiohead calibre, I might add) for this version is a sad commentary on either what U2 thinks appeals to the American market, or what actually does.

God. Fucking. Awful.
