After having draped a giant blanket all over the streets of Morocco, U2 apparently dialed back the production budget for the latest video from their No Line On The Horizon LP. All the action is animated in this one — and there is no Blackberry branding! — with David OReilly producing and painting a story of lost dogs and lost souls searching for themselves, for meaning, for someone to help them not go crazy if they don’t go crazy tonight or whatever. The animation helps paint it as a redemption song, which of course is music to Bono’s ego, when in reality it’s just a not bad U2 song with sorta typically bad U2 lyrics. The cartoon people have expressive eyes, though! So maybe it’ll get you emotional yet.

    They should do an official 2012 concert. Shit couldn’t get any worse than that.

  5. David O’Reilly, who directed this video, previously made a stunning short called Please Say Something. You’d be a fool to yourself and a burden to others if you don’t check it out.
