Did anyone else see this cringefest on their Instagram?
« on: August 21, 2019, 10:00:25 PM »
I know that U2 has a very particular political bent, and is vocally in support of virtually all social justice issues of the day. Thatís no secret..... but, did anyone else see this absolute cringefest on their Instagram page earlier today?

I havenít checked their other social media pages to see if itís also been shared there..... I was too busily cringing at what felt like a blatant stab at relevancy? I donít know.

Thoughts? Also, just to be clear, Iím not asking for thoughts on the message of
The video, but of the video itself.

Did you intend to add a link?

I did, and Iím also fairly confident that I did include it in my original post.

my computer is infected with Windows Vista and the browser won't display it (nice thing is most ads don't work either...;-)...  what exactly do you see?...  I thought "cringefest" had a ring to it and want to know what it's all about now...:-)

I didn't really take much notice of the video I just filtered it as noise.  I just focused on the message which I thought was relevant.
