This commercial is an example of why so many people crap on U2.  I've actually come around on the album quite a bit, but the commercial is pretty stupid.

yeah, I am with you.  I had hopes that the band would avoid the over-the-top, in-your-face smash-fest.  Oh well, maybe next time.

Edge smashes a guitar!
I really hope it was an extremely cheap one!

My very first thought when I saw it was "Not the Explorer!"

And Bono kicks the cymbal off the drum kit! Larry was at Bono's house, covering it in toilet paper and eggs...

I kinda agree too. I cringe how the youngins will perceive our band as wannabe aged rocker has-beens. But I could not come up with a better idea for a rock band to embody, especially one somewhat legendary and with history. A more Coldplay-style ad?

At first it was so fast that I couldn't tell who it was, but then when I watched it again I thought it was Larry. Then yesterday I thought it was Bono. I shall have to go investigate further...

I just noticed that this ad "Echoes" is a somewhat the visual opposite of Vertigo ad.

Instead of dark silhouettes on brightly colored background, the background is white with the bright colors in the silhouettes.

Finally saw the entire ad on TV, not running into the room to catch the tail end, last night during Project Runway.

It is - just seen it during the F1 Qualifying coverage on Sky Sports F1.

It seems there is a definate "sports" demographic being targeted judging by the replies here.

No, it's Larry kicking it.

I really didn't freeze frame it to check... honest!
