Found Bridge Burning pretty cool, Rope was funny at the end and I didn't think much of Dear Rosemary

I don't like the videos, they don't quite fit the songs and that's it.
Also I don't think I'm going to have them in my head everytime I hear the songs and I'll forget them very fast.
But I have to agree, that from those three Rope's the best
And what's with Dear Rosemary? Strange video.

I thought that the video for Bridge Burning had a nice concept, although it got a bit "worn out" towards the end. Nothing really happened. In addition to that I didn't like the amount of slow motion. Also there was way too much of the girl walking/running/looking into the camera with her hair blowing all over the place. Would have been more fitting for Avril Lavigne or something...

Rope is by this far my favorite! I liked the twist at the and and the overall feeling Cool vid!

The last one was kinda dark, and to be honest - boring. Not very Foo at all.


Looking forward to the video for Walk!

I agree with some of the others. Rope was the best of the 3 if I had to pick one. Dear Rosemary was very cheesy and very un-Foo like in my opinion.

Bridge Burning was ok but not great or very Foo like either.

I hope HOPE the Foo make more real videos for the songs with them actually in them.

But I do have to say these "amateur" (sp??) directors did a good job for what its worth but missed the Foo mark.

Dear Rosemary was dumb. Rope was alright. Bridge Burning was a little too weird. Walk is the best of the videos they made, I can't wait till they post that one.

I've only seen the Bridge Burning one, and it's pretty bad. No real concept, no real emotion. Bloody boring to be honest.

Oooh tell a lie, i've also seen Walk, and although it's been done before, it's still entertaining.

I've only just seen the Bridge Burning video, which killed my interest in the whole project. Creepy little girls screaming in fast-paced and fun Foo songs? Since when did that make sense?

I mean it's a good video, but it doesn't fit the song at all. All this 'little girl undeservently having a hard life' bullshit doesn't seem applicable to the actual lyrics and tone of the song. They should've just done them themselves with a VHS video camera or just picked a better idea.

They probably suck because the Foo Fighters weren't in them. That's the reason that most music videos suck.

Just watched Rope and Dear Rosemary. Both were terrible.

Has anybody seen the White Limo one? It's the worst of the lot. Can't believe these entries won.

the only one I liked is Walk, very creative and it captured the essence of the song with weirdness, it's something I would easily see Michel Gondry doing. if memory serves me well, I even think Dave said that, or someone did.

I didn't like the others, specially back and forth, because although it's one of the few that invested on having musicians (or portraying them) it's too pretentious and it screams "I wanted to direct the actual Foo Fighters".

and the director's portfolio website has his face on it. I can't stand people whose work doesn't involve showing their faces putting their faces visible. if you're a director, designer, illustrator, I want to know how good you are, not how you look like.

I know it's just a contest and they're not 100% official, but better things could've been done there.

is it just me or does it seem like these are just short film ideas these directors probably had and used the opportunity to throw it onto a foo fighters video...except for these days, that one actually made sense and i thought it was really well done
