Most of the music video is a tight shot of The Edge being poked, fed, licked, smacked and photographed as he stoically sings the song. It was directed by Kevin Godley
, who came up with the concept the day before the shoot. It took just a few takes to get right - for The Edge, the challenge was keeping a straight face throughout.
Godley used a similar concept when he directed the "Sweetest Thing
" video, which he described as "'Numb' on wheels." That one locks in on Bono from the back of a carriage.
One pair of feet that prod Edge in the video belong to Morleigh Steinberg, who does the belly dance for him in the clip. She was the dancer on the Zoo TV tour who performed during "Mysterious Ways
." She and The Edge got married in 2002.
