I tweeted you, but let me reiterate how amazing this turned out and how honored I am to be a part of this. Can't wait to see the extended version. Any word on that release date?

I absolutely love that Brian has "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" on his hand during the "favorite song" line

I finally watched it - wow. Just brilliant. I don't care that it doesn't match up perfectly with the lyrics. There's so much heart and energy, and a very clear story with well-developed characters. That's what a music video should be!

I've already said how much I love this video, but I wanted to break down everything in a more analytical way, if only because I think everything that went into this is awesome.

Long stuff:

No. The singer comes back and buys the vinyl when he's old. You can tell it's him because of the lighter.

He's talking about Tyler. Now that I think about it, Tyler probably did die in the Vietnam war, which explains his father's reaction and the dreariness of his room, as well as why he never comes back. Good catch.

i thought that guy - the on in the room where there's a box that reads 'Tyler's room', the same guy who gives Tommy the record -, was Tyler when he's older, when he comes back to the house he grew up in after many years..

EDIT: oh wait, never mind i've misread the whole thing, you guys are right xD

Honestly I was really confused by that part, but I looked at the scene over and over and I really think that's still Tyler's father.

I completely missed that but that makes sense now. I had interpreted the father to be Tyler when older and giving the record to the neighbor boy but now when I watch it again and he is saying good-bye and leaving with a bag and then the father is looking through his son's belongings and trying to pass something on to the next generation, Tyler must have died in the war. That's so sad.

It took a couple views before I put the pieces together, but I agree - it's Tyler's dad going through his son's stuff and passing it along.

Great analysis, Matt. I agree with you 100%. You can't help but choke up at certain points. Within just a few frames, the entire story and emotion is conveyed and it hits you hard.

My friend and I felt that some of Brian's "sitting on a chair, making exaggerated hand gestures and faces" reminded us of Eddie Vedder in the "Jeremy" video. Again, Brian isn't trying to look menacing and crazy as there is a completely different feel and purpose to the song and the video, but Brian loves that band too much to make me think that there wasn't some subconscious emulation.

Also kind of interesting if you connect the band not wanting to be in the video and feeling "forced" by the label to the fact that Pearl Jam did not do a video after Jeremy for years, and when they did, they weren't in it.

Thankfully, Brian never made this face.

The thing is, was it ever decided if they were forced or suggested? I know the comment that was said suggests that it was forced, but it sounded a bit more facetious than serious. Benny was the one who came up with the video idea, after-all. Maybe the label just suggested that it'd be best if they were in it as well, and the guys joked that they were "forced" in.

Looking at it from the labels perspective (how un-punk of me!) they want people to start associating their faces with the music. Once people start recognizing the guys of the band (obviously we already do, but the average joe may not) then they will most-likely have a little more freedom as far as being in their own videos or not.

Completely agree. Just thought it was amusing that some of Brian's motions reminded me of those of a singer he loves, in what was the last music video he starred in, when Brian and the band did not necessarily desire to be in this video. Not trying to make a bigger deal out of it than it is.

I hope this works....

Here is a photo that our on set photographer Ryan took on set. I'm not sure who is who but pretty sure a few of you are in this crowd. Also I just saw his edit of the behind the scenes video and you guys are in it and one of you even gets an interview bite in it. Not sure who, but it is a guy with dark hair who was wearing a denim type shirt.

Anyways hope this photo works! I'll be at Webster Hall tonight, so if you see me come say hi. Have fun tonight

Handwritten "making of" video is up!

Thanks, Kevin, not only for making great videos, but also for contributing to the forum. Long may both continue.
