Take That's "Greatest Day" Video In A Nutshell

Take That's video for "Greatest Day" premiered today. And since it keeps getting pulled from YouTube, here it is in a rapid play-by-play. (The clip is also posted below—watch while it lasts!)

The That basically stand on the roof of a Los Angeles skyscraper. They emote and rapidly vibrate—apparently they've got the music in them.

For some reason, L.A. is portrayed in this video as some post-Apocalyptic, Bedlam-looking hell. Oh, wait...

A bunch of pollen flies around in the air and Gary Barlow starts sneezing. I know, Gary, the Santa Anas get me every year, too.

Finally, the West Coast sun is too much for the lads' pale English skin, and they spontaneously combust.

Either that or they realized this song is no "Rule The World," and they're like, "Yeah, later..."

Here's the vid for "Greatest Day":

    They're all bouncing around with jazz hands! It reminds me of those gay Show Choir boyz from college (who actually all claimed to be straight).

    And I still think like Marky is aging into an old lesbian. Still like the song regardless!

    I LOVE "Rule The World" (and still berate myself for swapping it out of my singles countdown at the last minute for a JT single...oh well, at least they still had my probable favorite song overall of last year), but something about "Greatest Day" makes it a little easier (for me) to listen to, a little easier to put on...which doesn't mean it's a better song, but...well, who knows if that means anything.

    Anyway, the two and a half minute long part of the video I watched earlier only made me love the song more. Suitably uplifting, even if in a fuzzy-wuzzy trope-y way.
