What does everyone think about that U2 IPOD commercial now!

did it hurt u2's image or their legacy (for not selling out)

i could not stand that commercial! i would always change the channel, it was just disgusting what my fave band had become and what they were doing!!

even bruce springsteen made a joke about u2 selling out with the ipod commercial!(ya they did not take any $$)
lol

Let's talk? Very well.

I'll tell you what annoys me way more than that I-Pod thing, and that's the crap sound quality I was subjected to at Croke Park 24th June 2005.

Frankly, U2 owe more to their fans that paid good money to see them than the crap sound quality we were subjected to.

Considering some people forked out 1,000's between flights, accomodation, tickets, etc.

And yes Bono, it's your fault, along with the other members of the band. And McGuinness. And Principle Management.

You should have had the sound sorted, and you didn't, and that's not cool.

The sound was sucky at Anaheim 1 as well.

But I still like the ipod ad. Bono looked sexy in it.

The iPod ad was groovy. Didn't convince me to pay $50 more for an uglier iPod, but overall, it was groovy.

Bono's voice sounded really strange (because of the sound system) at Boston 2 & 3 and Paris 2. But I think I got used to it after a while. Then I listened to the bootlegs and I could actually understand half of what he was singing.

And the iPod ad... cringe.

I still enjoy occasionally watching it on tape along with MTV's 'The Making Of Vertigo'.
Bono was incredibly sexy !!

I still think the iPod comercial is one of the best U2 videos and I still like it alot.

The sound was perfect in Paris when I saw them!

Can't comment on how they sound live....

So my only comment is on the commercial. I thought it was cool then and still think it's cool now. I've said before that the term "sell-out" bugs me to begin with, and I just don't understand the big issue with it, personally .

i had nosebleeds, way in the back, but dead center stage, and the sound was great. Edge's guitars were really LOUD, and on some parts (like the Zoo Station main riff) you'd get high, thin, tinny sound, but as a gutiarist i loved it. the piano sounded awesome too, real sharp and bright, awesome!

U2 legacy...in 2004/05...can't be touched. The only people who bitch about it are those who are fanatics like us. I think it was just another medium that U2 conquered.

U2 and iPods are two of my favourite things. That's why I have a U2-edition iPod and love the U2 iPod ad with sexy B-man.
