I really believe that good old times will come back and Offspring will start to make great videos again. Itīs very important for fans and for new album as well, īcause the songs are really good.

So who wants a nice new video in "Americana" era style?

We need to make some noise!

I think it would be awesome to have a Ixnay on the Hombre/Smash era kind of video. With that low budget quality to it. Maybe something that Dexter made.

I have this theory that the Hammerhead contest was really just a way for them to find a new face to direct a video... but its just my own wishful thinking theory

I would be extremely happy with just a Can't Repeat style video.
Or just a live glorified vid of themselves at a concert.

I just don't like when bands aren't in thier videos. It's like they don't give a shit, they just pay someone else to do it or something. So i hope offspring is in thier next video.

Idea for You're Gonna Go Far Kid:

Setting: The band will be playing in a room with TV screens all around them. Large ones...say...62 inchers. The band will be focused on mainly during the pre-choruses. They will get some face time during the versus and chorus of course, but not a whole lot.

The video will show a sharp dressed man lying about various things that everyone knows about. He will be lying and the crowd will be buying it. He uses a television by him showing the lies he is propagating. (The band's TV's surrounding them will be showing the truths to the issues brought up). In secret, he's a robot being run by powerful men with bad motives. You will see these men getting paid behind the stage by the people they are lying about/for. He'll finally have problems during the pre-chorus where the guitars cut out. He will start smoking and a small explosion will happen on his chest. The crowd will investigate and find out he is a robot being run by others. At the outset of the loud final chorus they then rush the back of the stage, angry, and attack the people who had been controlling him.

Hey, I like your idea "Americana" video style or CO1 style - I think it's good too! :cool:

The concept of that video was interesting, but it didn't turn out as good as it looked on paper. Too choppy.

Now that I think of it, the second version of Can't Repeat was pretty good, but the "official" one still seems to be the original - the one with only the band - it's even on the complete music video collection.

What's the story behind this? Why is it two versions?

Yeah I think that version is actually one of their best videos ever.

Don't know why exactly, the first version video was out in the US and I wanted to make a good rip of it for theoffspring.info when it came out in Europe so I tuned into mtv, but they played this version instead. A bit later they also played that version in the US, but not so much.
Maybe the video wasn't ready in time (or didn't like the editing of it), so they just released the performance. They should have just done this second version straight away if they had the chance though, cause it's way better. If you aren't a fan of the band a full performance video is generally quite boring.

Ahha. That's strange...they never said anything about this?
And yeah, that was a freakin' good music video. *must...watch it...again*

Sounds great! Smells like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8flTP8O_iUE&feature=related :)

And I wouldn't like to see another full-band-performing video like Can't Repeat, I like videos with something more than just band jammin behind them.

Something like Pretty Fly (For A White Guy).

Ok, this situation itīs just awful. New album is out for a long time, there is only one (bad) video, we are not 100% sure what next single will be and that just makes me ANGRY.
It seems to me like they donīt want to make videos without Ron, so letīs jump into a car, visit him and ask him to COME BACK! (donīt forget chocolate and flowers ;) )

:confused: All I want is some nice video, it can be just simple, because new album is really good.
Inspiration: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmVn6b7DdpA I love it! Good idea + simplicity = unforgetable video

GREAT!?!?

LOL...

My fav 3 videos: Defy You, Gone Away and Pretty Fly.

My idea for YGGFK: Some guy in a suit walking along a road with a big pack of ppl walking behind, and one by one someone drops away, and right the end of the song, theres one person left who looks exactly the guy at the front, the fella at the front turns around, and the one guy left standing sticks up a gun and shoots him (right between the eyes :D) and just keeps on walking. And during the song the band is walking along side the man at the front but semi-transparent, like ghosts, playing the song.

I think it means resembles the meaning of what they're trying to get at, that some guy can persuade all these ppl to listen to him, but right at the end, he is his own un-doing.

deep? i impressed myself i think.
