It’s been two weeks since ‘Get On Your Boots’ was given its first airing and many have already formed opinions of the song (though we still don’t get the Queens of the Stone Age riff comparison) but now we have some visual reference in the form of Alex Courtes’ (who also directed ‘Vertigo’) music video.
The video takes place in space (naturally for the biggest band on the planet) with a collage of imagery taking in rollercoasters, explosions, the Virgin Mary, military warcraft, Aphrodite, candy apples and a giant lady wearing the aforementioned boots. Is this U2’s ‘Sex on Fire’ moment – an average tune that will be massive? No answer required.
Does Bono go topless after 2 minutes 40 seconds? Indeed he does.
The video first appeared unofficially on Facebook on Friday evening.
