I wonder if Bono spit it out after the director yelled "cut" lol will his Irish card be revoked now? Miller Lite is a rough way to prove you love America  :P

And we've all been cornered into one of those conversations at a bar. You can tell Adam is probably the only sober person in the place.  :P

Im not too flustered by it... but do you think this is pound for pound the worst U2 video ever? Very cheap, re-using shots... tons of cliches. Worse... they did it before...

Interesting take with the Stature of Liberty/the idea of America. I dig it.

Looks like they had a lot of fun filming it. Now I'm hungry for pizza.

Not a bad video but not that interesting. The Blackout on the other hand has a pretty great video, and is just a way better song.

I like the video more than the song. Mainly as it showcases NYC, which just happens to be my fave City on the planet. I will say tho, given that the song is supposed to be about "the wife", not sure it makes much sense

So a song about Ali has a video with ... wait ... absolutely no relevance to the missus. LOL.

Oh my. You guys. The criticisms. Just. Keep. Coming.

I agree greatly!

I'd personally prefer that the forum is converted into one mega-worship-thread. No criticisms or negative discussion allowed!

I really like the video ... it looks like they're having fun ... suddenly it feels like a classic U2 song

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?

One of the shots looked directly stolen from an SNL shot.
