Suits the song better than the lyric video and the "USA!!" video.

Same. Because I don't care about this filmmaker's cliché interpretation and these strangers so in love. (yes, harsh and heartless).
Those of us who like "Best Thing" have our own image of the person in the song: Ali Hewson, your real life spouse/one that got away. Or your favorite film/fictional couple.

If I was "licensed" to make a U2 song- short film, I'd try to be creative. A la that "I'll Go Crazy" cartoon music video, or maybe make Best Thing about a bond between a zoo hippo and a child. haha.

It's cool that U2 are "licensing" their songs to indie filmmakers to interpret though. Like this one, Song for Someone with Woody Harrelson, and that Every Breaking Wave "movie" video. None of which I watched.

I'd watch if it's Mark Ruffalo acting a U2 music video though  ;D
