Bono & The Edge Endorse New Film About Australian Minister John Smith

@U2

If you've ever wanted to see what it would look like if Bono shot a selfie, today's your lucky day.

Bono and The Edge are showing their support for Smithy, Something In Every Hue, a film about Australian minister and biker John Smith, in a brief, homemade video clip posted earlier this week on YouTube.

U2 first met Smith while on tour in Australia in 1984, and they've visited with him several times since then. Bono also provided a quote for Smith's 1987 autobiography, On The Side Of The Angels. The Smithy filmmakers are trying to raise money to get the movie made.
