Smoke Break: U2, "The Fly"

I just realized I haven't done a Smoke Break video clip since last July. So, last week I caught the new documentary "From the Sky Down" about the making of U2's seminal "Achtung Baby." The film was extraordinary, going into great detail about how they literally chucked the earnest, white flag, "dough-face" Joshua Tree image in favor of "The Fly" which was, as Bono said, "put together from a rock star identi-kit: sunglasses from Lou Reed, pants from Jim Morrison, and jacket from Elvis."

Frank, look at me now! Enjoy your weekend.
