Ouestion about "Bad" video

I watched the Best of 1980-1990 today again and I noticed a couple of things that I wasn't sure of:

In the starting of the "Bad" vid, Bono seems to be removing something, some item of clothing from his bod. It's definitely not his shirt, since he's not wearing one, its not his belt -he's wearing suspenders. So WHAT is it? It's like a long rope that he's unwinding from himself.... or something? If anyone knows, I'd appreciate it!!

And, is it just me, or does Edge look pissed off in ISHFWILF?

And, did anyone notice how the cameraman jumps and is startled in the "Streets' vid, where Bono touches his arm? It's funny

It is a belt or sash. Suspenders have never stopped him from wearing a belt too.

I know that Bono did startle the cameraman. That was funny. I don't remember Edge being pissed off. I'll have to rewatch it.

He doesn't smile throughout. There's a lot of happy lipsynching going on around him, but he looks upset/pissed.

Edge definately looks pissed off when Bono sings in his ear. It's given me quite a giggle whenever I watch it. And yeah, as the other girls have said: it's a sash.. I hafta say when he unravels that sash I'm thinking: bring it on, boy! Bring it on. Unfortunately he stops at the sash..ack.....

Haven't watched Streets in ages
Yes, he's usually so smiley that he looks murderous in ISHFWILF
The sash is called a cummerbund

I don't think he's pissed off at all. I think that's his customary long-suffering look that's associated with Bono.

Best part of that video, in my opinion.

I think Edge back in those days looked pissed. It looked like an act since he was so quiet and stuff. He was probably annoyed that Bono was always singing in his face.

I don't know.

I've also reacted about Edge in ISHFWILF, and my sister demands to know what is up. If you watch it really closely, at one point he sighs really deeply. I mean, both Larry and Adam look really happy in the video (Adam almost looks a little too happy) but Edge looks bored and angry...

Could be it's just the way they were directed to act.

poor arm sling Bono. Is it wrong to say that he looks good with a dislocated shoulder?

Except he dislocated his shoulder in '87... he is wearing a sling here, right? Unless he's just headed for the disrobing of his sash.

Re: Ouestion about "Bad" video

And, is it just me, or does Edge look pissed off in ISHFWILF?

I remember reading somewhere (can't remember where now) that the director wanted the Bono to act like a street preacher and Edge to act like a busker annoyed by the steet preacher. don't know what adam or larry's roles were supposed to be. does anyone else remember anything like this?

That would explain some things.

Maybe Adam & Larry were supposed to be drunken Las Vegas revellers.

although I read somewhere that Larry was off between shots chatting with cops about the make & model of their motorcycles, so he couldn't have been too
