I really, really have.

But that video is an embarrassment.

I gave up after the first 30 seconds.

Looks like they filmed it at a Jugalo convention.

Is this the same band that gave us the videos for "Tonight, Tonight" and "Thirty Three"???
No. Clearly, it is NOT the same band.

Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris gave us those videos.

Also LOL at the juggalo comment

“Come play, James-y?”



“Oh, yes, master Billy. Allow me to stoop before your generous, overflowing stump.”

Oh, he has lost way more fans than he has gained. Not even close. Most of the ones he is losing though probably don't even bother to watch those youtube videos anymore.

This is like what a seventh grader thinks would be a cool music video. I love it so much.

Me too.

That said though, there are bands out there that are worse than SP post 2000. Somehow people like them.

Meanwhile Linda Strawberry is sad that she can’t add this video to her resume which consists entirely of things handed to her by Billy in exchange for unconditional ego validation.

At least the pumpkins aren't the only 90's band making cringe inducing videos...

really wish they wouldn't goth it up anymore, corny af.

Its clear where their legacy lies and its not in the venn diagram with NIN, Manson, TOOL, My Chemical Romance, or any other hot topic band (with all due respect to NIN but none of the others). They've got the 'fuzzy-but-not-metal-but-not-shoegaze, siamese dreamy thing" and a lot of the other whimsical stuff they wove into their image RIGHT THERE FOR THE PICKING. The ice cream truck promo was barking up the right tree, but then painting it black and giving this whole campaign some weird goth vibe is just whack.

This was...not good. Sorry boys.

Jimmy and Jeff playing Connect Four with all-black chips seems like a reunion jab. And what is it with Billy and nurses?

The second half of season 2 when Windom Earle is the main bad guy is almost unwatchable by the way. I mean the finale is one of the best things ever put on TV, but a heads up

Season 3 is perfect from start to finish
I canít think of anything I didnít love

Sixteen episodes of the best fucking show ever followed by like 7-10 of absolute shit then bam right back into one of the greatest finishers ever

Just skip over everything happening with James once he leaves town, it goes nowhere and is a hilariously bad waste of time

I was trying to understand the video but I just can't. A few things:

They are in a maternity hospital, which is called Tragedy. Everybody is acting crazy even though Billy is the only one held hostage. Billy leaves through a door that says 666. The tattooed guy has a "Hell _ _87 - maybe 1987, the year Billy and James started the Pumpkins?). He's looking for freedom, but that brings him back to prison.

Strawdingle wasn't directly involved in the new video.

But it's still a Coloma Production...

This is basically like Black Hole Sun but with more "everyone but me is crazy" theme and less terrible digital visual effects

I've watched the original many times, but I watched S2 before the return last year and honestly, I think the hate for it is overblown. There are good parts of every episode and anything with Cooper is always enjoyable. The worst part is all the stupid mini-arcs and new characters.

as someone else pointed out earlier it's amazing how different the comments are here than on the youtube video itself lol

there are a few pretty salty comments posted in the last few hours but i think everyone here universally agrees this video is absolute garbage.. can't say i'm surprised that he has wrestling shit mixed in too but the whole thing just fails to create any type of artistic landscape.. solara was a terrible song in the first place, this video just made it worse.

i've read other comments too correlating ICP with this shitshow haha

Agreed. It's obvious Lynch was very absent, but if you ignore the mini-arcs, it's pretty solid.

Also Fire Walk With Me is great. Haters can fuck off.
