    hey all,

    my bud let me have his copy of "7 Commercials", which is a DVD showcasing 7 of Radiohead's music videos. anywho, i remember seeing the video for "Just" in college, and yet to this day, i still havent found out what the man said to freak everyone out?

    for those who need a little mental jogging, it starts with a guy laying down on the sidewalk, and after another dood trips over him, people keep asking the man on the pavement why he's there, but refuses tell people saying its sooo horrible, he wouldnt dare tell him. course, to make matters more freakie, its all told in subtitles. well, he does tell them, tho, sans subtitles, and next thing you know it, they're all on the pavement.

    course, i'm bad at reading lips. :rolleyes: anyone wanna enlighten me?

    No body knows. Really, no body but the band members. That is my favorite video though.

    It was just a gimmick to create fuzz about it... and it worked great (this thread is an example)

    I hear that they used the same line in Lost In Translation, when Bill Murray whispers into the ear of that chick he met in Japan. Great line; great movie.

    He says "Truth is people, this was all just an idiotic plot to get you to waste your time and now that you know this you'll probably want to lie on the floor as well."
