Babyface Mullens. Don't call me the boss, call me the Bono.

So many questions;

who is Lou?

why does not Adam speak?

also why does Mr. The Edge sound like a lamb?

He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

I think Lou is the Bartender. Adam is a bystander, but does laugh at the end. I don't know why Edge sounds like a Lamb. Obviously a reference to some sidekick role someone had in a movie. Larry is the hitman, but he uses a violin. Bono is the Boss.

Never seen this before.

This could be why Bono never went into acting. There were rumours he would act in the 90's. The McPhisto effect.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Adam doesn't speak because he's disturbed at how dumb it is.  As this was done for WEA I assume Lou is Lou Dennis, but I'm not 100% on that one

i think Bono makes an interesting character

not even sure he was acting there, it's likely one of his truer personas if you get a few beverages in him and he's into story telling

Adam didn't insult anyone so he likely wasn't sloshed, he did smile though

Larry, i have no idea if he was smiling or not, which at least means he (hopefully) wasn't grimacing or scowling

Mr. The Edge, he had to be sloshed as well to sound like a little lamb. I do hope that was spontaneous and not something he had rehearsed.

He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

I watched this a long time ago, and thought it was pretty terrible. I guess I'm going to have to watch it again now.

Has anyone seen  man on a train  or whatever that was, with Larry ?

And...it's still pretty terrible.
