Some of the videos are coming out now that it has aired on TV. In my opinion One hasn't been sung with this much passion/conviction for 20 years.

Eddie Vedder - One


Eddie Vedder - Elevation


Sean Penn Speech


Borat Speech

Jealousy, it's not what it's cracked up to be
Envy, gets you where you need to be

That Borat speech
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

U2 is my favorite band- but it's this kind of pretentious bullshit that makes me embarrassed for them.  The stoopid sequence of 'celebrities' reading their lyrics was just atrocious, and Penn giving a speech is laughable.  And why is Borat there other than the fact their politics are the same?  Don't understand why the band craves accolades like this.

Itís pretty common Shank. Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Sting, Bruce Springsteen, and many others have received it.
