    That is a very jarring video, though it would have been better if the application targeted profile pictures and not random screenshots.

    Also, LP needs to find a dictionary and look up "interactive." If i hear that it is interactive one more time I will scream.


    I cringe every time I hear that phrase, "true fan." You haven't a clue.

    It was such an awesome concept, but the pictures that were chosen ruined it for me. I couldn't take half of it seriously.

    In my opinion it doesn't fit the song... It's too slow.
    Somehow had the feeling of an amateur video.
    Acting wasn't that good either...
    And Facebook... +,>

    Oh and at Virska: Oh yes I do. Oh hell yes.

    EDIT 2: Whoops I didn't see this post from Kacy:

    "Hi, I've been on this fansite since 2003. Die-hard fan doesn't mean being completely obsessive.

    You don't get to say anything about being vocal either. I was in line for a Meet and Greet in Dallas on Monday and yelled, "Meteora sucks!" People in line turned and said, "Hey, you're Minus from the LPA aren't you?" And yes I am.

    Music videos are done without the band members in the video all the time. Chill out"

    Being on this fan site since '03 is cool I'll grant ya, but that doesn't make you a bigger, or more die hard fan then me, or anyone for that matter. I get to say everything about being vocal, in many ways, that are going to be missed by you, due to the speed posts actually get posted in a busy thread like this, so I'll tell you them any other time. But not now.

    Band videos without band members suck. There is no point to them.

    Hell you know what? I admire you attitude.

    Definitely would have been a much better decision.

    Shame, seems the site isn't working properly for me at all for a second viewing.

    It was a cool concept, and I applaud them for doing something different than the previous entries in that regard. However, apart from that gimmick (albeit cool), the rest of the video doesn't seem to hold much weight. A couple of those actors were cringeworthy to watch once they started crying. The yelling of "No!" in the video was a bit of a put off for me, it reminded me of the kid from From The Inside (which this video visually reminds me of) but in a much less cool way.

    I think this was definitely a video that could have benefited from footage of the band playing the song. There's so much energy to it and they decided to go with a very different emotional trajectory for it for much of the song, which wasn't the best move in my eyes. I can picture some great split shots of Mike/Chester doing their thing during the singing/rapping/screaming parts. If they had spliced some of that along with the Facebook-photo-embed idea, this would have been a really good video. As it is, I'd say it's pretty ehh after the novelty factor wears off.

    All the images that it showed for me were images that I had been tagged in so it all very random but fucking hilarious! I lol'd so hard as a woman in the video cried over a cartoon image that said "midgets are people too"

    :rofl:

    It means that I'm Minus. It means that I'm so vocal about hating Meteora that people that have no idea who I am recognize who I am in public places.

    Well the video was working for me, then it stopped. Did a refresh, now I get a page saying I need to have at least Flash 10 installed, which is very much so installed.

    It's 3:45am here and I've wasted enough time on this. Night peeps!
