And my last post was probably 2013.

Hey, I think the song is great. But why does U2 insist on videos like this? Leave it up to the imagination on what level Bono and Larry don't give a shite anymore. Don't show it to the world. Kind of ruins it for us long term fans.

We've said it for years, the best thing U2 could do is put out an album where they don't try to make a single. Just don't. Let the hipsters discover it deep down buried in the internet somewhere. Mystery and discovery make great music and even better music fans.

But the song/sound does work for me, as long as I don't look at the video.

What would a more passionate Bono look like to you? More crowd surfing?

Larry obviously looks disinterested in the video, but I think he's had so much plastic surgery and/or Botox that this is just his permanent look now.

I don't get where you see Bono as being disinterested in the video at all.

Maybe somebody was challenged to say something obviously wrong and see how much of an interference meltdown it could cause

There is something to be said about not doing performance videos anymore. In almost forty years, there was only a small span when they were cool. Now they are not. They havent been for more than a decade. Plus everyone hates bono. Plus performance videos suck anyway, unless its a rarity in a band's catalogue or when you have vertigo-type visuals (maybe not even then).
They should just make good videos where they are largely absent. This is a young sounding track and does not do much for the acutely ageist society we live in when four dads are seen rocking out. They should just make Stan Lee type cameos and be happy with that.

Clearly Fresh and Furious was a phony title.
