U2 releases new video


U2 has released their brand new video for "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight." A completely animated music video, U2 never makes an appearance, but David O'Reilly's stunning animation definitely makes up for it. O'Reilly, who both directed the video and did all of the animation in it, has worked on films like Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Son of Rambow. The video's unique look and interesting message makes it very cool to watch. The characters in the music video all have a realization that they are living meaningless lives and that they'll "go crazy if they don't go crazy tonight." On their official YouTube page, U2 explains that the video is "not your typical music video, this animated ensemble video was directed by David OReilly, who used the songs themes and lyrics to create multiple, parallel stories about people who decide to make a change in their lives."
