Honestly the short clip I saw gives me hope that this might not actually be a terrible music video. Them walking around New York and then performing on a roof in a nod to previous videos? Better than many videos.

They must've rethought the video. What happened to the girl?

She might still be there ... it's only a few seconds out of a 4 minute video

Umbrella

The umbrella is very obviously an ode to The Sweetest Thing.  Another of their "pop" tunes.  So the umbrella totally makes sense to me given the nature of the tune.

Here's the video.

Not bad, nice to see them out and about enjoying themselves, acting or otherwise. Easy, simple to make. Now I want some pizza and beer though.

The umbrella has got nothing to do really with any of these things. I live in NYC, and was out that night. It poured rain for most of it. So I suspect the umbrellas served a practical function :-)

Very powerful pro-immigration, anti-Trump message in this video. I love it. Puts the song in a whole new context.
The best thing about America is its immigrants.

What a weird and disappointing video.  No shots of Ali?  No shots of Bono leaving home?  Nothing about being on tour dragging him away from his wife?  Nothing about the fragility of monogamy or of life or of beauty?  Just walking around eating pizza and taking selfies in NY?

Huh. So is the song about Ali or America? Fun video though, I always like seeing them interact with fans.

Also, can we get a count on the number of Statue of Liberty shots?
