Default the RADIOHEAD "just" video mystery

ok so it was bugging me tonight, cuz i was reading this article on great rock mysteries, and the guy said no one knows what the guy on the sidewalk says in the "just" video. he says one thing that's not in subtitles, and the next shot, everyone's lying on the concrete. supposedly what he says makes everyone lay on the concrete too.

ok so i did a quick search and found this, from some guy's online journal: "I finally reached the end of my rope and one time when the video was on, I videotaped it and explained the situation to one of my friends who is deaf and asked him to come over, watch the end of the video and read the guy's lips for me. Like I said, I just had to know.

In what proved to be the video's "playing with your mind" crescendo as well, my friend told me that the guy doesn't actually say why he's on the ground or what causes everyone else to lie down on the ground as well. He just says, "You want to know? I'll tell you... I'll tell you..." over and over. But I guess the video did its job, because 6 years later, I'm still thinking about it and wondering what the hell that guy said that had that effect on all those people."


i watched that part of the video about 5 times, and indeed, all he says is "you want to know? i'll tell you." of course the video gives the illusion that the mouthed words are the big secret, but what he says as to why he's lying on the concrete isn't in the video at all!!! the very next shot, everyone's laying down.

all the director of the video will say is "To tell you would deaden the impact, and it would probably make you want to lie down in the road, too".

now whether this means there actually is something the man says that's "cut out" (never shown) for the video, i don't know. maybe it's all just one big joke, though i doubt that........

if you guys already knew this, i apologize. but it was news to me

so i'd like to think there was something said, or at least something in mind, but we'll most likely never know what it is.
And that's the point...

hehe.

i think the just video was designed to give the impression that the band know something everybody else doesn't, and that they can change the world etc etc. however, in reality they have no miracle solution, if they did they would have put it in the video.

If I were him, I'd say it at a festival while headlining and watch all the people fall on their asses like dominoes.

OF COURSE WHAT HE SAYS IS REALLY REALLY STUPID. IT'S JUST A MUSIC VIDEO. IF LIFE HAD A MEANING, IT WOULDN'T REVEAL ITSELF IN THE END OF A GODDAMN RADIOHEAD VIDEO.

I can't believe people actually ponder this shit for more than a day.

I've never seen any Radiohead video other than There There and High and Dry.

I donít think he said anything specific, I never did.

It was the impact that was important, not the words.

Itís just a video.

I always thought that what he said was "I have seen the way ..." then it cuts to the angle above and he says the same thing again. But obviously I was wrong. Maybe it was "You want to know? I'll tell you ... Indians coming."
