u2 on entourage

well i just finished watching the episode where the gang goes to a u2 concert and bono wishes johnny drama happy bday right before vertigo. its funny how bono wished him happy bday in spanish. and it seemed like he didnt want to put any effort into it. i was watching a talkshow with the entourage cast on it and the guy who plays ari said that he requested it from bono backstage. hahaha looks like bono's not too fond of ppl making damn requests while hes on stage. thats my boy

I'm not sure how you came to that conclusion. If U2 wasn't fond of any of this they would have never done the episode.

WTF? You're the one claiming to read Bono's mind and you're insulting me?

No shit it's for publicity. I'm saying they wouldn't have signed on for the episode if they weren't fond of doing it. When have you ever known U2 to just jump on every occasion, just for free publicity? They do the things they want to.

So your mind reading of Bono, saying he doesn't "like request" has no merit. Why, just because you thought he put little effort into it?

Watch the insults newbie.

My apologies, wasn't trying to be rude. Just told him to watch the insults and he is new according to his post count...didn't really mean it as an insult.

I think I read on some old article here on Interference that one of the guys from Entourage really really really hammered on Bono until he said 'yes.' Not that no one else in the world has tried that and was turned down... But I don't think the band was totally in love with it or anything.

Yes, that was nice.

Even if publicity was the motivation, which it may have been, what possible benefit was there? No new album, no current single in US, touring in Europe on the verge of a month off?

Who knows...?

It was Jeremy Piven, I can understand how he'd be pretty persuasive

I don't even have HBO so I have no clue about the episode, I assume U2 just thought it would be a fun and different thing to do, and like I said.. the Jeremy factor

supposedly he is a big U2 fan and maybe that had something to do w/ it as well

So basically, what you're trying to say is that Bono and HBO hate Mexicans?

Well, whatever Bono's thoughts are on having to say their names in concert, the episode has been great publicity, fueling the new single and helping the album stay on the BB charts.....

entourage

Here we are about a year later and I've just seen this episode. I thought it was pretty trashy on U2's part. I've always thought that appearing on TV shows was reserved for the likes of Barenaked Ladies, Spice Girls, and Busta Rhymes , certainly not something I would ever expect from a prominent act. That said, its one thing to appear on a TV show, but its an entirely different thing to have the script customized to promote the band throughout the TV show as was the case with Entourage. That's just plain cheap. Not impressed at all.
