The video shows Bono orchestrating an elaborate apology to Ali, who appears at the beginning of the clip getting into a horse-drawn carriage. The camera then cuts to Bono, who is facing her, and stays on him as they go for a ride down a street in Dublin. Along the way, Bono makes various outlandish offerings to win her favor, starting with the Irish group Boyzone, who climb on board. Next comes a marching band, a fire engine (with firemen), a string section, Irish step dancers from Riverdance, and an elephant. It's not clear if the apology works, but he sure made an effort.
It looks like the Bono section is all one shot, but there are actually several edits made where the light flares come in. Kevin Godley
, who directed it, did something similar on U2's video for "Numb
," where the camera stays on The Edge for almost the entire time.
