Take That's Atrocious Video For 'The Garden'

The video for Take That's (German-only?) single "The Garden" premiered on Wetten Dass yesterday, and it's surely gotta be embarrassing lesson in how to slap together a promo clip with a budget of 40 Euros, a crew of three and a two-hour production schedule.

In fact, did Gary Barlow's 8-year-old kid edit this shit together on iMovie? The German's oughtta give Take That das boot right out of the country!

Word to the wise, Take That: If you're placing a 5+-minute epic at the beginning of your album for full dramatic effect, don't whittle it down to 3:25 for the single release. Otherwise it just ends up sounding like horse butt.

What a way to piss all over the best song on The Circus!

    There are so many problems with this video: 1) The terrible music edits, which are very awkward, 2) Howard's pained facial expressions (he looks OLD too) and 3) the fact they never end up together in the video. It also wastes the "vistas" of the location.

    Its not too bad. I'd still boff it. Reminds me a bit like Kylie's video for Finer Feelings.

    Howard's always frowning, isn't he? Constantly worried look on his face.

    Shit video. Agreed with Fredrik though, would still boff it.

    this is the first time i've heard the song but u can tell how badly the song has been edited, very rough. i'd do a better job myself!

    They seem to be channeling Coldplay again. Sloppy edits fellas. C'mon. Surely one of the four of them or someone they know has a clue how to use ProTools editing decently.
