Clearly very low-budget but had some cool moments.  Bono looks good in his jacket and hat, and setting the beginning of the solo to rapid-fire machine guns was pretty cool.

Never saw that one before.

Like the jacket. And the hat.

i like the giant earring much better than the Lennon glasses he's currently rocking.

Apples and oranges, i suppose

the giant earring is likely the reason his ears stretch down so far now, a simple diamond stud would have sufficed

I would agree though the Lennon glasses don't suit him very well, especially with the droopy ears

it is cool when a video or song comes out of nowhere and surprises me.  when leonard cohen died i thought it was too bad u2 never did a song with him, and then i saw the video of their version of Tower of Song they did together.

It is odd that the IGC video never really got any airplay on MTV. I only knew about it because it was included as part of the "Outside It's America" documentary that MTV put out back in '87. It included a video for Spanish Eyes as well.

too funny! We call some of the commerical vids and most fan-filmed concert vids "The Bono Show".

It would have been pretty odd to release this video to MTV, at least in this form.  The band is missing, and it feels like a first year film student assignment. Still cool to see unreleased odds and ends; I wish they would really open up the floodgates at this point, especially since we've reached the nostalgia tours phase of their career.
