Kristy, no question. One of the best Offspring videos ever. I think we needed something like this :p

Hammerhead. I love the grainy atmosphere and symbolism. Also it goes great with the song.

"You're Gonna Go Far, Kid" was my favorite by far...

I love them all, but I didn't really like the You're Gonna Go Far, Kid video. Didn't really fit the some for me.

I voted Kristy, but I also loved the Hammerhead video as well.

I think I like my concept of videos better.

I just loved the concept and look behind this one.

I voted Kristy. That's for sure the video that will gain most "popularity", because it's a really nice and serious, typical musicvideo. Not like Hammerhead with "rotating pigs", heh.

BUT! Of course, Hammerhead got this hidden message too. but with pretty poor animation and the whole way video is, then nah...not good enough. A little too special, perhaps. ^^

On the other hand, I like You're Gonna Go Far, Kid better than the Hammerhead video. Also got an important message, and I really like the special effects/animation around the peeps. But in the end, I think I like Kristy video the best. Probably because it's a more typical and normal video, with Dexter in it too. Nice work ya did, it turned out really good!

im kind of in disbelief that the offspring actually wrote and recorded a song like kristy, im in shock that they put it out as a single n i can't believe that they actually made a video for it!i can't believe that they would put out a song so clichè and so similar to all the other shit on the radio..honestly, i respect what the song is talking about but, apart from the sound of dexters voice, what sets is apart from all the other corporate radio shit out there?? what makes it different from shit like simple plan etc??i've been w8in 4 them to do something semi-acoustic for so long and i thought that when they eventually would, it would be something along the lines of a leave it behing style melody or something to that effect..but not this, this is torture it seriously sounds like prom music and the high school video story is so old!!y didn't they follow along the lines of hammerhead and release more serious,politically charged videos??
I have always accepted their commercial stuff and respected it because,although commercial, their songs were always original and set them aside from all the mainstream pre-packaged bullshit..i can't believe they went from risking a law suit from their record company to completely succumbing to it and releasing this cheesy prom dance jingle..lyrics aside

i voted for Kristy. On the second place would be YGGF,K, and on the third place Hammerhead.

If we'd be rating the music however, it would be a complete opposite for me Only YGGF,K would still be in the second place :D)

Arent music video's supposed to be cheesy and shit? Anyone who looks for the meaning of the song in a music video is a fucking moron.

It's all about the music for me, man. I don't if the offspring say they will never make another music video ever again. I don't care, as long they keep the music coming.

kristy, because dexter actually shows up in that video rather than some rotating pig [no offense is intended to random rotating pig lovers]

Conspiracyof1000
02-02-2009, 11:50 PM
I voted Kristy because the video had Dexter in it, plus it seemed more coherent.
It's about equal with YGGFK, though I could only vote for one. :P

Budzy
02-02-2009, 11:55 PM
Kristy, because the song is a horrible song to make a video out of, and they pulled it off really well, and Dexter is in it. Hammerhead, the easiest song to make a video for, sucks more balls then ily2 and ftw-renton, and YGGFK has a forest nymph in it, and i can't help but be embaressed by the start of the video.

Kristy. I think it's really cool. And it's nice to see a bit of Dexter in it. And just the whole thing : nice!

True, this video is good, but YGGFK is much more original while sticking to what the song is about.

Hypodermic_89
02-03-2009, 01:31 AM
Anyone who voted Kristy simply Dexter shows up in the video is a fucking moron. Try to look deeper into the videos themselves, not just "OMFGX ITS DEXTURR <3"

I mean seriously, you all know what Dexter looks like, let alone the whole band. What's the big deal if they don't show up in their videos? They experiment new things with their songs, why can't they do that with videos?

darea
02-03-2009, 01:38 AM
I didn't just vote Kristy because Dexter was in the video. That was a plus, but I really liked the whole thing. The sort of scenario of the video. And all the way through, I like it. It seems all to go with the song, and I liked it much more than the other ones.

It's not just because dexter's in it, because if you just took all the rest of the video, without him in it, it would still have been good. The video makes you sorta understand more what the song might be about...

I voted Kristy... I don't know why but I didn't really like the YGGFK story.

KyleW
02-03-2009, 03:03 AM
Looking at Kristy's huge majority win in this poll so far it seems that this thread should have been created in a month or so. I can guarentee that a lot of them Kristy votes are simply because of the initial hype that its just come out. Although to be fair I can see why people would vote it over the other two, its got Dexter in it.

I voted for YGGF,K but it was close. I really like the video for Kristy but I would much rather watch the YGGFK vid if I had to pick one.

not just cause it has dex in it. i really like YGGFK video too.

but kristy one is deep and catch the message in the song (same does YGGFK - but that song can have dif meanings or dif prespectives). in kristy video there is just one story to tell! and the video do it greatly! also, the images are dark and cold. and it's a really SAD video, with a sad ending, how many videos do u know like that? i loved the end, when the guy just wont reach her and talk to her, THAT, my friend, means a lot :)

I actually like the hammerhead videoclip better than YGGFK. I hated the YGGFK video. If anything, it's really boring compared to the hammerhead one. At least the hammerhead video tries to do something original and keeps your attention.

For me it's
Kristy > Hammerhead > YGGFK

That's right. It has its own original concept, even it's animated and without band members. imo...

Hammerhead is more "offspringish" song than Kristy, no doubt about that. However, in let's say 10 years, Kristy will be as "offspringish" as Hammerhead.
I can't agree that HH video is offspringish, not at all. Band never was into cheap animation and disturbing dark random symbolism if we speak about music vids.
Kristy is just a typical video that I would overlook if it wasn't Offspring song easily, Hammerhead would grab my attention.

Yeah of course. I love these songs. My eyeview on "offspringish" isn't one-way oriented (as All I Want, Hammerhead, Million Miles Away etc.) I love Why Don't You Get a Job, I love What Happened To You, I love Don't Pick It Up too. The point is these songs aren't so sweet as Kristy or Fix You. So can you understand me know? :)

I always understood your points, Tomas. But did you get my?
Back in the days, when Americana came out, Pretty Fly was bashed pretty much by Offspring fans because it wasn't "offspringish" back then. I bet they were saying the same thing that you say about Kristy. That Pretty Fly will never be a classic Offspring song. Now it is one. Same story about Pay the Man and any other non-typical song. All they need is few-several years to be considered as "offspringish".

yeah I understood what you said. It is possible but I hope it woun't happen :) Killboy Powerhead (classic Offspring song in 90's) or Pretty Fly (classic Offspring song nowdays) are still punkrock for me. But Kristy and songs like that never will be

You do know Killboy Powerhead was a cover. You might want to pick a better example.

and of course isn't punk rock. I see it as more Alternative rock-like, which is cool. I like the song, but I wouldn't call it punk rock.

Kristy is by far the best. It followed the story line, the band was in it (Dexter was enough for this particular song), it was well written and acted out. It made me like the song more after seeing it.

YGGFK was mediocre... I didn't like the main guys acting, and the band wasn't in it. That's 2 strikes.

Hammerhead was ridiculous... I didn't understand the rotating pigs or the birds that turn into jets, and I hate fully animated videos, and I also want the band to be in it! That's 3 strikes.


...So Kristy
