Well that just about answers my question of if U2 would be doing some exculsives with Itunes

I love that ad so much. I really, really, really love it so much.

remember those Jet "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" Ipod ads? well it's that mixed with what seems like footage from the official video (or a unique performance) of Vertigo in the same visual style (though you can tell who's who instead of just Black Silhouette on colored background). It's pretty goddamn cool and I'm looking forward to seeing this commercial being overplayed

Wow, these are very, very cool. You can see 'em by clicking the following links, which will load in iTunes:

Normal TV Ad: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/M...7&videoIndex=2
Extended Version: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/M...8&videoIndex=2

Check out both!

Oh my goodness! There's some facial movement from Larry. He says hola, (kinda angrily)...
And was that an open shirt Bono at one point?

I don't think this is the official video. This doesn't appear to be the stuff shot in spain...

Nah, this isn't the official video. It's just a promo for Vertigo on iTunes.

Anyone else thinking that the rumored "I.T. Company" that's suppose to sponsor the tour is Apple?

Yeah, I can't believe Larry actually moves and opens his mouth.

That alone might be worth the $.99.

The videos are free, fortunately. Hopefully it'll give Vertigo another sales boost on iTMS.

I've extracted them from the store, but they're fairly big - 7MB for the TV ad, and 30MB for the extended version. Otherwise, I'd host both.

For now though, I'll put up the TV ad, and maybe someone can host the extended version later on.

Here's the TV ad: http://g0rman.com/U2-Vertigo-iTMS-TV.mov

That will be up for a limited time though, as I need my bandwidth

Please don't download this from me unless you absolutely can't get it through iTunes! Thanks!

Wow this is really awesome!!

There is somekind of "The Matrix" effect in it, you see the camera fly around the band, and then sooming in at Bono.

This is really cool

Maybe it's just a part of the new video, i don't think this is only made especially for Itunes, it's looking to professionaly for being just an ad.

Actually, all of the iTunes ads have this look to 'em, and are all extremely professional. This is the first one to include footage of members of a band, but it's definitely part of the same series of ads. The entire extended video is made using this same style, and I think it's pretty clear that it was made specifically for the iTunes+iPod+Vertigo ad. From what we know about the "official" video, it's nothing like this.

I still love it though

The more I watch it the more I really like it. There's just something very cool about it's style.

I think it's just for the ad, I-Tunes is big business, so I'm not surprised about the quality of it.

But i can certainly see any influences of the directors, you can see same sort of visual graphics as with the The White Stripes.

I think it's shotted in Spain, just to have that lights, and that target to distract us. But on U2.com there saying that they wanted to make a graphic based clip.

‘The hardest thing to do when you’ve been around a few years is to surprise people,’ explains Bono, recalling U2 videos of the past. ‘We’ve made all kinds of videos over the years with, er, uneven results. High-concept, story, abstract… but we’ve never done a video that has a graphic arts background which is where Alex and Martin come from. ‘

The band met Courtes and Fougerol in France during the summer, having come across earlier work like The White Stripes’ video for “Seven Nation Army”. Their graphic treatment for “Vertigo”, the appeal of a clean, direct execution, grabbed the band’s interest. In keeping with the musical and lyrical atmosphere of the song, the directors want to evoke ‘the state of paranoia into which we have been plunged today.’

‘It’s against clutter,’ adds Bono. ‘There seems to be so much clutter everywhere. Turn on music television there’s big cluttered sets, people walking round with clutter around their necks, great cluttered award shows… so this is our attempt to empty the frame and make a very graphic arts based video.’

I really think the video will be the same, without those dancing I-Pod listeners.
