People! Don't get so disappointed & lose hope before the video is even up. We'll see it for ourselves, we may like it or we may not, and surely it ain't gonna be another cheap looking CGI mess like the Hammerhead one. I still have a feeling this one's gonna be great judging by Hopewell's past videos and the plot of this one.

Wow. I'm not too excited anymore. If you watch the Hammerhead video with an "it is what it is" mentality, it's not a bad video, but I was hoping the YGGFK video would be not only better and more professional, but something that's more suitable for mainstream consumption.

Edit:OHHHH

10-16-2008, 12:55 PM
People, remember that the main thing that we were really worried about some time ago was the new album. It's great. It's sad that guys couldn't find any good directors, I just wonder, are The Offspring that shy with accepting crappy-quality animation of Hammerhead? Couldn't they just say that video has to be remade with better quality? Or they find it totally acceptable like nothing better could have been made?
Anyhow, I would ask everyone here. Prepare to see through crappy visuals and find what will video be about. Hammerhead wasn't that bad if you exclude poor animation.

I find that it's pretty lame to expect something ultra awesome and being ultra disappointed when your expectations failed.

But hey, we haven't seen it yet, right?

And guys, i'm just going to echo what others have said, wait to see it for yourselves, remember when a couple guys got a hold of RAFRAG and posted a couple "early reviews" half of GOD went batshit, just wait and form your own opinion.

Although i am perfectly content to wait until tomorrow, i do have one small question, Jesus is the video "serious" or "light-hearted"?

In my opinion music videos NEEDS to have the performing artists in it, without a doubt. Even without seeing anything, if there's no band at all, no good. No good at all. It can ba half animated (Korn's Freak On A Leash), but the band MUST be in music videos. You don't have to agree though. (:

However, let's wait and see.

Guys, chances are they won't be in the video. Why? They're touring, duh. That takes alot out of any band. They're giving the fans the opportunity to see them live, and here some of you are at a forum, bitching that they're not doing a good enough job if they're not in the video. If shit hits the fan tomorrow because you don't see 'the band', I will be seriously offended as a fan. They're going out there, showcasing their talents to lucky fans. They're only human, if they don't have the time to star in the video then oh well. Atleast we got a god damn video while they're busy.

Genie takes revenge by taking the guitar back. And making the farmer dance until he disappears in the ground.

Yup , might be that people like it a lot (well 'a lot' prolly not, just like it) and prefer it over hammerhead. When I watched the hammerhead video I had read a couple pages first about people complaining, so my expectations weren't that high. So it was quite okay (although it's quite bad compared to basically every video they have done minus hit that). So maybe if you all have extremely low expectations and already know that the band won't be in it it will be okay. That's also part of why I didn't keep my mouth shut.

It's just that the song is doing so well and then you expect it to be an awesome video with the band. And the first thing you notice is the absence of the band. I also have some problems with the mixing of cgi/drawings and real people. It either works or fails. It works on some occasions in the video, but on others it looks so fake.

Bullshit. There have been plenty of good videos that used animation. She's Got Issues, anyone? Defy you had animation, too, and that worked beautifully. Some disagree, but I think Hit That is among their best videos. Fit with the song absolutely perfectly and the animation couldn't have looked better. I'm not even going to go into how many other bands have used animation to make brilliant videos.

You haven't even seen the goddamn video. I'm sure you can wait a DAY before you start bitching.

In all honesty, that was one thing I actually didn't like about The Offspring's videos in general. I thought they actually showed the band too much. I much prefer it when bands make videos that represent the song, not the artist.

Everyone can be creative without limits.

In all honesty, that was one thing I actually didn't like about The Offspring's videos in general. I thought they actually showed the band too much. I much prefer it when bands make videos that represent the song, not the artist. I'm not saying that The Offspring make bad videos, I just thought that it severely limits the creative potential if you absolutely HAVE to have the band being shown in the video.

yeah i get your point....

but i didn't want the band to appear during the whole video (or even the most part of it)....

but it would be great if they could, at least, be there ya know?...

.....just like...erm....pretty fly for example...

you still get the message AND get to see them play OK to no one that's true :p.... but still, they play :D

Yeah, I know what you mean, and i agree to a certain extent. I just thought that if you have an idea in your head that can be accomplished easily one way, then why include other stuff that could potentially become a roadblock to conveying your artistic message?

Then again, I've had idea for music videos in some of the bands I've been in where we (the band) are the main focus of the video, so it can go either way.

It's probably just a personal thing of mine, I guess.

I dislike music videos. They are so repetitive.

But anyway, in my eyes a music video shouldn't try to be spreading some kind of symbolic message, it should be cool and flashy and fun. Nobody is going to want to watch MTV and watch the HH video, that's for sure. They're also not really saying anything new with this symbolism so it's kind of pointless. Honestly it's kind of pretentious, filling videos with a message like the Hammerhead one...It's like favoring substance so much the style aspect is completely left in the dirt. Just make a cool fun video that fans will like and get new people interested in the band.

I didn't like the Hammerhead video, but the premise for this one and the stills have actually raised my hopes for this video. Now I am rather looking forward to it. I can't really see how they would include the offspring in this video. It doesn't really fit the song. It is a little disappointing that they won't be in it, but I look forward to it anyway.

For the most part, their older songs weren't so story oriented, so it was easier to add the band to the mix. This is especially true for songs involving love, girlfriends and humor. I couldn't come up with an idea for this video that would involve the band. Usually when I hear a song, I picture what I would make the video look like, but I couldn't come up with one for this song.

Now ALLM and Kristy? easey peasey to include them.

Can someone explain me the need of having the band in the videos. Aren't we all here because of the music only? Do we need to see their ugly faces every fucking day? Don't we have tons of footage of the band already? Do we need some more?

My first thoughts about the band not beeing in the video was...uh, no!? But after thinking and reading a bit, I'm still very excited for the video. I understand why some of you are really disappointed, but some of you overreact a lot too.

How did you get the video Tijs? First I thought you were just making this up (but you actually have the video, but are saying bad things and then BANG - a really cool video with the band and stuff is realesed and everyones happy). And you still can mess around with this (heheh!), 'caus you're the only one who have the video (of us). So you did take som SS of the video, but the band can still be in it. You're lying! ...or maybe not, I'm not sure. :p

Serious question ... if the band keeps making videos that dont' have them in it and/or use animation, isn't it safe to assume that might mean they don't want to be in the video? The last one they were in was "Can't Get My Head Around You," right? I really didn't care for that one at all. Are you all honestly going to tell me that video was somehow better than "Hammerhead"? Dexter was orange, for chrissakes. If this is what the band wants to do, then let them.

Was he really orange in Can't Get My Head Around You? I know he was orange in Can't Repeat. I don't remember all that well about CGMHAY. hmm... I must go see.

EDIT: Conclusion: Dexter was not orange in CGMHAY. I think you may be thinking of Can't Repeat, in which he was indeed orange. The only thing I really loved about that video was Dexter's purple shirt. I want a shirt like that.

I would just cut hands of those "professionals" who make cheapass animations for official videos. They really don't deserve any payment for their work. I don't have anything against animated videos (Hit That has cool animation), but I hate how fucking irresponsible were creators of HH vid, they made a satisfying work for early-middle 90's, not for 08. Animation can be cheesy in a good or in a bad way. I haven't seen the spoiler screenshots so I hope that YGGFK will have a good animation.

One of my all-time favorites, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, are notorious throughout their decades long career of turning in the most horrendous music videos.

My favorite Offspring video to this day is Come Out and Play, where they were given... how much was it? Like 5,000 dollars?

The video itself is well made but it's really boring. It doesn't really match the music at all. The lyrics yes but not the music. It would have been better with a more colorful and fast-paced video IMO. I don't care if the band's in it, but honestly I just think a video with the band playing at a party or something would be way better.

Only thing I wish was different was the ending, instead of him getting eaten by the ground, it cuts to the band playing. Then, It would have been perfect.

I kind of missed the point of the video. What does the video have to do with the song?

Someone who has a great gift misuses it for their own benefit and in the end it will bite them in the ass. Not that hard.

Many of you are goddamned full of yourselves/just plain stupid. Why does the band have to be in it? Good God.

After all that negative stuff that been said here earlier I watched the vid and it looks great! Seriously I was prepared for far worse, it's kinda Chris Hopewell's classic. I LIKE YGGFK video. period.
Oh, and animation was fucking cool this time.
Gonna watch it again...

I kinda liked it. The color on my monitor is messed up, so I couldn't fully see the colors and such, but it looks fine. I'm not one of those who thinks that they have to be in the video. There was a strange feeling I got from it, though, like the song was too short to get the whole story, but it did it relatively well.

I thought it was actually quite good. It fit the song perfectly and I could tell that this is what they had in mind when they were writing it. It's not as good as the I Choose video, but it's definitely among their best.

I will add this, too: THe video has that certain feel to it that'll make it do ridiculously well on MTV. That sort of quasi-artsy-fartsy type stuff seems to be doing really well right now, and seeing how popular the song was without the video, I'm sure it'll be an even bigger hit now.

Why would you say that before anyone whose just seen the video even said that? Don't you think that makes you come across as belligerent?

People had already effectively said what IamSam wrote before the video had even premiered, but you're right, I think people will be chill about it now that it's actually aired.

Diego06
10-17-2008, 01:42 PM
i really like the video because of the symbolism: the idea of how success can be easy but after the success you fall, at the end of the video...
The Offspring are really my favorite band because i believe that they understood that success is not for always, even if americana and smash was great commercial success, they are still an authentic band, and simple people, and for us i'm sure that this album is really for the fans, they don't want have a third big commercial success, and that's why videos of RAFRAG are absolutely not like the videos of Americana
(excuse me for my english i'm french)

Thomas

I like this video. Nice dark story about farmers rise and fall. Greedy little bastard.

Shit. I didn't even think about that. It fits with the theme of the album absolutely perfectly. In retrospect, so did the Hammerhead video.

Whether you like this new material or not, you've gotta admit they kept a pretty solid artistic theme.

I officially like this video. I, like many others, had my doubts when we were told that the band wasn't going to be in it and it was going to be partly animated but I must say I was pleasantly suprised with the outcome.

10-17-2008, 01:46 PM
It completely doesn't look like a power metal video!
The farmer looks more like today's bum than like a medieval farmer, the fairy girl doesn't look uhm...epic. It looks artsy-wicked, power metal videos look naive.

That video was weird.. I don't know if it was good or bad, but just weird. All I could make out of it was the definition of greed, and that how any person can easily waste a real opportunity.


I guess I liked it.

Rooster
10-17-2008, 01:48 PM
After the second watch i began to like the symbolism, the story is quite well thought, but i still think it's weird... I'm more of a fan of videos where the band is shown. Anyway, the band chose to make this kind of video and i support them, and i hope that they get more airplay due to this video (and the great song).

Wow, I really, really liked it. I mean, the band’s last few videos have been mediocre at best. I honestly think this video is one of the best they’ve done, definitely in my top three. It’s got great visuals, it’s almost surreal. And I love the symbolism; it would have been so easy to do some generic, goofy band video, this offers a lot more to think about.

It's ok, I guess. I need a time to appreciate it. It did nothing with me right now.

It reminded me of Smashing Pumpkins (Tonight, Tonight) at the beginning. Dreamy. It's more Panic at the Disco than AFI.

I had pictured something more realistic in my head but I'm not complaing.

I refuse to comment more on it. Give me a month. :D Hammerhead grew on me and I regret that I criticized it that much. But still, HH wasn't executed to the full potential. (too chaotic, poor CGI) It had some brilliant ideas. It looked better on TV than on youtube.

Hahaha! I was wondering about the same thing! I need to get the golden guitar somehow! I really like the video a lot - It's different - It's The Offspring - It's not like every stupid video you can watch on TV like Blink 182 videos or Greenday or shit it's great - takes 11 pts out of 10 for me. :cool:

So its really not that bad. My only problem with it is when they say dance fucker dance people actually dance. That just kinda takes me away from it. But other than that, it really wasnt that bad. Atleast they didnt do anything in the video that had sound over playing the music. Now those videos suck.
