The Only Good U2 Video Is...

The only good U2 video is a U2 video with no U2 band members in it:

U2 "Window in the Skies"

I dislike U2 intensely, but this video is really great. Instead of the usual footage of the band lip syncing and striking cheesy rock poses in their flashy leather pants in time with their latest contrived, overproduced power-pop they assembled video clips from footage of dozens of other (better) musicians (including Elvis, Kurt Cobain, Kanye West, etc...). What's impressive is that they picked out slices where the old footage syncs up with the lyrics or instument shots in the U2 song to give the appearance that each note or phrase is performed by Elvis, Kurt, whoever. Nicely done.

This may be my last post for a few weeks, until I get back from Texas visiting the in-laws. Happy holidays everyone.
