See U2’s Electrical Storm video at U2audio.com, encoded by Trabbie at U2sat36.
Pretty Steamy Video. About time Larry loosens up. Love the mesh shirt on Bono!!
Seriously…What’s up with that deer?
I love the clip, it’s too hot but i don’ t understand what’s happened with the deer
it seems they are using the orbit mix in the video?
Yeah, it’s the Orbit mix.
Oh god, this deer thing is going to be the equivalent of the ‘who died, the dwarf or the girl’ question…
Ah nice to see them back. So Edge gets “Lara Croft”, Larry Gets a mystical mermaid girl. So who is next in line for videos that live out odd fantasys, Adam or Bono? 😉
Speaking of Adam, where in the video is the greatest bassist of all time?
See, the midget died, and was reincarnated… AS THE DEER!
Steamy Electrical Storm
U2log.com has got a link to view the video for ‘Electrical Storm’, the new single by U2. Larry gets all
Could this encode be any worse? Any Mpegs or Quicktime Please!
JD, we’ll have to wait for the “official” encode at u2.com or till November.
lol @ Bubba! I also have to add that I think Bono has had his fair share of fantasys in videos. I think Adam is next in line.
i’ve seen the video on vh1 about nine times
‘Electrical Storm’….the new fragrance from Calvin Klein
Not bad – not bad at all! What’s the story with the deer??? And Samantha Morton’s pretty hot too.
I think mermaids are cool, huh huh.
The deer IS the Electrical Storm…
I’ve got to get me a pair of those oh-so-cool black Bulgari shades…I reckon Bono must have a walk-in wardrobe full of ’em at home.
Ooooh…oooh…oooh, think I have a theory for some of these bits. Larry is salvaging a TV and a suitcase from the sea. TV=Zoo TV and suitcase=ATYCLB. Plus Edge is wearing a Pop era hat. Hence all the eras represented in the Best of 90-00. Still have no explanation for why the bathtub would come from the sea (although I understand the mermaid needs a bathtub), nor the connection with Bono being on a train nor the glowing deer. (g)
Hey PopArtist, good call I was actually thinking about that… I think Bono’s shades were from the Popmart era also because he usually wears the clear purple ones

Ugh … mixes. I don’t know the official names for which versions I have, but I have 3. Version 1 is very clean, and you can hear Adam’s bass lines and Larry’s drums. Version 2 I think is the Orbit mix. No sir, I don’t like it. Too soft with all the keyboards and sirens (not police, but women singers) wailing in the background. Version 3: Not much better. Lots of keyboards. But a little more guitar than version 2. Based on the comments, the video uses a remix instead of stripped-down version. I’m personally not a fan of all the remixes — I think the only one I truly have liked is the extended “Lady with the Spinning Head”.
I really would’ve loved have seen the Single mix used for a video. However, in the context of this video, the Orbit mix works well. Unfortunately, the Orbit mix really isn’t a Grammy friendly as the Single mix. The Single mix has a much better line of electric guitar, kind of fitting for the actual song title.
I’ve been told by a artsy friend that the deer is actually a stag and in medieval times the stag represented a person’s heart. Sounds good to me. Love your comment, PopArtist.
Popartist, great catch with the TV and suitcase!!! Maybe Bono is a “Passenger” on the train??? Larry pushing people away to symbolize his attitude towards Passengers and Popmart??? Just kidding on that last one…
Two words… Wicked Game.
Does anyone know if the is a Windows Media Player/Video version of the video. I am at work and can’t download realplayer or any other media player.
In the middle ages, a deer was called a “hart.”
Into the Hart? Eww…
Two Harts Beat As One?
Memory is a bit fuzzy…but isn’t the stag in pagan mythology a part of ‘wild hunts’ of the goddess Artemis? I believe there is a story from Greek or Roman mythology about a mortal killing a stag belonging to a goddess…I may be totally wrong…and it may have nothing to do with the video! oh well…
with regard to the comments on the lousy encoding, let me send trabbie’s apologies… he was in a hurry to run the clip & used real player because it is fastest. (yes, he knows the quality is not up to par by even his standards)
and i dont understand the deer either. maybe the unforgettable fireman was onto something with that pagan mythology theory…
Hey, so how are the Mpeg files coming along. I still havn’t seen it and I can’t download RealPlayer. I was up way too late last night trying to see this video on MTV and they never played it!
the unforgettable fireman is on the right pathway.
Imagine we’re swimming high above the stars at night!
Anyone reckon that
‘Electrical Storm’ is a reference to their 90’s electronic sound?
That the period was only a ‘storm’? And that now the ‘storm’ has passed,so Bono will be going back to his flag-waving, preaching,etc? Just a thought…love the video though!
what’s orbit mix?seriously,larry looks so good in the video,love the part where he’s at the shower,oooohhhh!!!!!!!but the whole vidoe doesn’t make sense,at least to me.dunno what they’re trying to tell the viewers.
hi there!as the most of you i like the ‘electrical storm’ video really much and ‘ve been wondering about the deer. so i searched really long in the internet, because i was so curious, and found out that the deer is an old christian symbol. it’s said that the deer shows where bad powers hide to wash them away. which from my opinion does match with the videos plot ’cause after that scene the couple in the video starts to fight PLUS right after the deer there’s the couple shown in rain (rain=washing?). anyways.. this is my theory and i’d be really interested in others. oh and people from germany (or other people too 🙂 should take a look at the “j
I just saw the video and I’m still thinking about Larry’s cooooool part in it. I kinda never really noticed him – the others have such charisma that Larry is ALWAYS “that other guy”. Not anymore!
As for the dear, it is still today a pagan symbol of fertility and sexual love. So there.
All this could be interpeted much better, even with the dear and even with the bathtub brought the sea (?..)
The clip is actually bad because it is not good work : they did not really work much on it. They did not put enough love in it – I believe.
