U2 Lists: Top 6 Funniest Video Clips

@U2, April 14, 2010
By: Rashas Weber

 

[Ed. note: This is the 18th in a "U2 Lists" series, where @U2 staffers pick a topic and share their personal rankings on something U2-related.]

U2 Lists 6. Lucky Clovers cereal 

OK, so technically it's not U2, but this has always been one of my favorite U2-related videos. Ben Stiller brilliantly combines all three of the videos for "One" in this spoof, down to the littlest detail like the scar that's on Bono's chin. "One bowl...won't be enough." 

5. Stage fright, Bono?

In the late '80s, U2 did an in-depth interview on Ireland's The Late Late Show. It seems like it has a much more candid and intimate atmosphere than that of other interviews. There are many humorous moments, but my favorite is Bono's tale of being in a men's room: "I was waiting for inspiration, as it were."

4. Late Night with David Letterman

Since I couldn't decide between a couple of clips, I'm including both.

Top 10 Things U2 Has Learned Over the Years 

Larry: "Sometimes when we shout, 'are you ready to rock?!' I don't care if you're ready to rock." 

Ask U2

While Bono is too busy cracking up during Edge's complicated problem-solving, Adam manages a "That's right, The Edge."

3. It's a Musical Journey

Adam has an attack of the giggles during the awkward start of this interview from Rattle and Hum. After the song, at about the 3:36 mark, Larry mimics Adam's gestures to the amusement of the others.

2. The Godfather

In 1987, U2 filmed a video for a WEA Sales Convention, which was Island Records' distribution partner at the time. I particularly enjoy Edge's bleating sheep of a laugh and "Babyface Mullen" with his literal instrument of torture.

1. The Dalton Brothers

During the New Music Awards in 1989, U2 won for Song, Band and Group of the '80s, while they were on the Lovetown Tour. Backstage in Australia, the Dalton Brothers stepped in to accept (referring to it as a country music Grammy instead). B.B. King shoos them out, telling them that this is U2's dressing room. Betty Dalton tells a joke: "We do two kinds of music: country and western."
