Hmm, I'm not sure, but there were some pics from the set of the video. I know that there is a black and white one around with bono standing rather on the left and people stand around him.......

This is one of my favorite videos! Bono reminds me in video of some sort of demented children's TV host. LOL!

I love this video so much! I have a lot of stills, but Snapfish hasn't been working for me lately.

This whole video's adorable...I like the dog puppet, and the heart-shaped cloud, and the "I'm sorry" banners, too. .

Definitely my favorite video of these guys' thus far. .

This video is one of their best ideas ever, what a cute concept! However, from a PLEBA point of view, it's not a favorite since I don't find Bono attractive in it. His hat, glasses, suit and haircut are atrociously geeky and unhot. I've seen nerdy scientists with more sex appeal. So, by hot Bono standards, it doesn't work for me at all, but it was a good idea. I like how they incorporated Ali, the band and the brother. It's also cute that it was based on a true story. He wrote the song for Ali because she was mad he missed her birthday. When he takes off those glasses and gives her "the eyes", that's the best part. Who could resist those eyes?

Yeah, he doesn't physically look his best in this one, but he's so dorky that its totally endearing and he makes me laugh my ass off in it, which is always sesy. =

I agree that it's not exactly Bono at his sexiest. It's not a sexy video; it has tons of personality, it's very clever, and makes me laugh my ass off. So from a PLEBA point of view it's not "hot" but it's great.
