Also with the turnaround of this commercial, it would take some time to produce unless the footage was already shot.

I know...I work at an ad agency.
Bono was using in Spain a wireless mic.
The Edge was playing a diferent guitar in spain.
And also, the light reflected in Bono's shades seems to be a studio lightning.

They were, actually.



His shirt and the shades seem to be the same as well.

So you mean to say they shot the footage, rotoscoped the color, edited the spot and got approval from U2 in one week?

Doesn't seem feasible.

1. He is using a mic on this spot BUT we don't know if he had a mic to begin with at the shoot.

2. The edge may have brought more than one guitar.

3. Lighting can be created in POST PRODUCTION.,

Just doesn't seem feasible for them to shoot TWICE.

Oh one more thing that could have happened. There is a part that shows Bonos hair blowing crazy...wasn't there high winds at the shoot?

Oh, and it seems pretty clear to me that the wires plugging the mic and the instruments were added in post-production (CG probably) to go along with the white ipod look.

The more I look at it, the more I'm sure they used footage from the Spain shoot.

Uh, you did see the vid from the top of the pops that was shot in a studio, right?
I'm going to admit that I could be wrong. I guess we'll see on Friday when the video is premired...

It would be cool if they took out the IPOD people and edited more footage of them and then made this their OFFICIAL VIDEO. It really rocks. I have to agree that after a few days of playing I was a bit burnt BUT now it has rejuvenated me to listen again.

Thanks Gorman. However after it downloads it sais Click the program you want to use. Then i choose Windows media player, and then it takes me there but sais Cannot open. Please verify that the path and filename are correct and try again.

The top of the pops video looks and was low budget, quick, and quiet. This footage is shot with some serious equipment and with some time to do it right. We've got rumors in everytime the band does something with any kind of scale.
