    I´m watching it right now, it´s pretty pathetic.

    IMHO Creed are way past their prime, they are still doing some sort of "hero" rock with "epic" videos. Basically they´ve become stagnant.
     
  4. i liked the last one with the baptism imagery and such. :rolleyes:

    can't wait to see this one.
     
  5. This necessarily implies that they ever had a prime in the first place. :D

    What you get is a cartoonized Scott Stapp, as some sort of avenging angel (complete with wings), battling a dragon and some sort of Dark Lord. They tried to make it look like a video game, complete with incredibly repetetive motion.

    It's hilarious (if disturbing). Ooh! Scott Stapp-Angel does a spin kick! Ooh! there's another one! but the Dark Lord blocked it! Ooh! now he does a jumping spin kick! The Dark Lord recoils! Oh No, the Dark Lord does a foot sweep while he's down!

    Astonishing.
     
  11. Def Jam spent over a million dollars making a video very similar to what you're describing, for Sisqo's "Unleash the Dragon." One of Russell Simmons' lieutenants looked at it, said "You've got to be kidding," and shelved it permanently.

    So, it figures that Stapp would want something so ridiculous.
     
  12. :eek: that is ASTOUNDING. i can't wait to see it.

    blaspheriffic!

    so is this video as blatantly christian as everything else they've done? judging by the description of the stapp-angel, i am going to assume it is.
     
  14. I think Jesus is plenty insulted by this.

    Yes, if the God that Scott Stapp loves so much really exists, he will do hopefully do us all a favor and b!tchslap Creed into nonexistence.
     
  16. SCOTT STAPP MAKES THE BABY JESUS CRY!

    ...the chorus part -- "Look at me! Look at me! Look at me! Look at me!" Okay Scott, we're lookin' at ya! It's your band and you're the center of attention. We get it. You are our generation's Led Zeppelin. I also like how the guys in the CGI video are drawn all muscle-y and stuff. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...

    I love the part in the "My Sacrifice" video, where Scott passes up that hot chick and saves himself instead, so he can sing to himself! Does Mark Tremonti only have one pose? I think they superimpose him from video to video, because his stance never changes!

    On a more serious note, I am probably going to be "forced" to go to a Creed show by my girlfriend -- payback for the three GWAR shows I "forced" her to endure. I think I'm gonna wear a Pentagram T-shirt and yell "you suck!" during a quiet interlude. I hope I don't get assaulted by an angry mob of Creedites.

    Only in the sense that Scott Stapp hates Christianity because of his terrible upbringing and somehow this translates into making himself Jesus.

    I think some therapy is in order. . .
