Nothing scares me more than that horrendous Discotheque video. They all look so dumb and so retarded. It's like a nightmare from bad drugs LOL!

Hey wertsie and lazyboy....

Be careful about that VHS because in the UK they have PAL format VCR's while the U.S. has NTSC format. Soooo....lazyboy might not be able to watch the video. You can convert it, but it is kind of expensive....I think $10 per hour of video.

I have sent things to Ireland before and I think that VHS isn't even in PAL...it is only the broadcast signal from television stations.

I must admit, some of the ACHTUNG BABY era videos seem drug-induced to me.

Actually VHS does come in PAL...I found out the hard way. I bet on some Kate Bush videos on Ebay that were listed as VHS and I won the bet. I had no idea that VHS came in any other format other than NTSC. The guy was from Scotland and before I paid for them he emailed me to make sure my VCR played PAL videos and I had no idea what he was talking about so I did a little research and found out that there are different kinds. You can buy VCRs that play both formats, but most people's VCRs play one or the other. Probably what happened Swan, is that either the people you mailed them to were unaware, as I was, that VHS comes in different formats, or they had VCRs that will play both.

Tsk, tsk, THIS thread from the girl who claimed in another thread that she was saddened and hurt and mad when people don't like everything by U2? The same girl who preached that they were her 'family' and when someone dissed them she would fight? Here SHE is laughing and making fun of and picking at things they've done??? Ironic.

Look, I don't know what your problem is, but don't take it out on me, okay? I do not HATE the videos. I still love them all, because it's U2, but some were better than others. And yes, some were highly amusing and even SCARY. But that doesn't mean I hate them.

No video ever 'scared' me but "Discotheque." It made me running away screaming in terror- literally.

Well, it wasn't THEIR fault their fashions/hair were so bad (imho) back then. I mean, it was the 80s...Fashion massacre city! But I have to say that it IS very endearing to watch!

Yeah, "Discotheque" was...something else! Totally goofy. It's alright for me to watch though, in moderation....hahaha...I still think "Discotheque" was the WRONG single to release first off of POP...yeah...
