I'm guessing that the head is a girl, and this girl is a scan of Edge's daughter.

And perhaps Edge is a grandfather?

firstly thank god for an original idea and video at last! the last few have been pretty generic and paint by numbers band videos so its a relief to see something that looks like a bit more thought went into it.

the first half is dull dull dull (except for the first 30seconds of the wires - thats great). as a previous animation student and someone who works in the film and vfx industry i'm almost offended by some of the head shots. if anything they look incomplete, like they're missing a whole bunch of stuff and someone didn't have the time to add the detail or render them properly.
I think the head shots were intedned to be that basic, thats what nearly gives it more beauty. I use alot of rendering in my work also and know that its not exactly difficult these days to make things more realistic. Come on, if they wanted it to be more realistic, its not like they're stuck for money or knowledge, I mean look at the effects overloads of Elevation and Vertigo.

The basic approach looks as if its meant to give the idea of purity, something at its very beginng. Almost as if even further definition awaits this person or spirit in life, like the lyrics suggest....thus the marker lines and advice that are projected onto the skin. I could be wrong, but the very idea that a video has us talking like this is better than I could ever have hoped. I loved the excitement of the Vertigo vido, and Sometimes was very well-handled, but all of them have been quite 'regular' as videos...this one really is a shot in the dark towards a more artistic feeling.

Personally, the shot of Adam is the best...for some reason, god...he makes me sad...I dont know why! ...it in a good way, theres something so honest about his face, but also such depth as well....not to get too melodramatic...but it was just a perfect video. I was never crazy about this song. I loved what they did with it in concert, but this video just brings it to a whole new level.

...and how could you really ask for more.

On second thought, Holly is Edge's oldest daughter - Bono says it's about her - so I think she's probably in her teens now and that doesn't look like a teenagers' head. (edited to add: I just looked and she was born in 1985.)

Maybe it's all computer graphics made and the baby's head isn't scanned?

Best video reserved for the best track on the album.

Even my missus likes this video & she hates U2.

Now I'm worried.....

When is the single being released ????

Great video, very "original". Sounds like they did a bit of re-recording, you can notice it at the beginning and different parts.

It's OK. Certain elements are very nice, but as a whole it hasn't blown me away in the way I was expecting it to.

Thanks for posting the video.

Really great video, beats the shit out of all the other videos on this album.

I find the first half pretty boring, but from 2:00 until the end of it it's incredible.

I love the faces of all the band members at the end.

Best Part: The tatoo drawings on Bono's arms.

The last bits of the video were lovely, I will say that. But I guess I'm the only one who was kind of creeped out by the rest.
