A Sort of Homecoming video?

I never knew this existed, so sorry if this is old but I just saw the Sort of Homecoming video - on ktu.com of all places - go here

http://www.ktu.com/cc-common/videos_on_demand/

and on video vault to the right, go to U...and you'll see it.

It's definitely an official video for when the song was released. Never saw this video b4 - how rare is this?

I like it alot by the way...

Hmmm..they don't even list it on u2.com (not that that should surprise us!).

Just watched it. Reminds me a little of the Spanish Eyes video--all those panning shots of 80s America, cars, trucks, etc.

God, I love this song! Watching the video reminded me.

Anyone able to capture it and put it up for download?

That's on The Unforgettable Fire Video collection, and not rare.
But it's a good one (despite Bono's truly dreadful haircut).

Sadly when they put the Unforgettable Fire documentary on the Slane DVD they left off the videos that were on the original VHS.

I just went to check it out, and it can't be that rare, since I have it taped of from MTV...

Like woah, that is an awesome video, thanks for finding it u2mad25, I've been trying to watch it on MTV.com for the longest time but it doesn't work with my computer. *most extreme bowing for video*

Only thing is, what's with the random trucks? More Bono in tight leather pants, please!

I've always loved that video. It always makes me want to go to Europe.

Easily the best version of the song and one of their best music videos. Love it!

Any luck with grabbing the video from that site?

I'd love to have the video in my collection!
