View Full Version : "Faint" Video Description

If you were lucky enough to be watching MTV2 Rock around 6PM EST you most likely got to see Linkin Park's new video for "Faint."

The video is a completely different video for the band as it features the band performing on stage in front of over 600 fans that look more like over a thousand. The lighting is dark, only illuminated by lightbulbs running the length of the walls which give the video a nice brown color. Even more different for the band, this video is shot from behind them, so Linkin Park's faces unlike in previous videos are barely shown except for when they turn to the side or when it is from above.

Chester isnt shown until the soft part after the bridge, as Chester walks towards the viewer, literally screaming in his/her face.

The rest of the band isnt shown from the front until the last chorus, in which the lights flick on and LP is shown performing in front of a old torn down wall that looks like it was literally 'cut out' from a building.

I won't spoil much more, as I think you should be left to see this video for yourselves.

If you would like to view the video, click here (http://launch.yahoo.com/musicvideos/player/default.asp?videoID=1090140), or here (http://www.zpgvidz.cjb.net/) to download it.

I just noticed something after watching the video repeatly after the premier for one hour. I noticed that in the part when Linkin Park is shown performing in front of a old torn down wall, on the left corner of the wall there's a painting. It's a drawing just like the lonely boy that's on METEORA wall at the right of the painting.

Yep I just watched the video on "Launch" but mu opinion is that the video is........ :wth: really not what i expected. It's nice after you see the background, which happens only during the last 30sec. but honestly i was bored when i watched the wirsht 1:45sec. :sleep: Maybe i'll give 8/10 but i don't think the video deserves more.... [maybe i'm being too critical..]

[Edit]: I watched it again and again and i think the more i watch it the better it seems. But i still think they could have made it a bit more interesting... :wth:

did anybody else notic somebody up in the window of the torn down wall. i think its Joe.

Anyway i'm gonna give the video 9/10. It was good but i didn't realy like the whole behind-the-band thing.

HOLY CRAP i love this video.....its different from any concert video Ive seen, and I love how you barely see the band until the end, and at that point everyone goes nuts, its a different approach for them, and they pulled it off amazingly.

if you would like to download the video, go to http://www.zpgvidz.cjb.net

fast server, a good 30-40k/sec on a Cable Connection, i downloaded it in 15 mins. XVCD rip too. :D

the video is hella cool, it's one of the better performance videos I've seen judging by the Launch version (which was blurry on my comp). I've yet to see the XVCD version because it was completing while I drove to school.

9/10.

Time for "Mark's Observations"!

Brad's T-shirt says: "J'ai Confiance En Toi" which is "I Have Confidence In You" in French.
Joe is in the hole in the wall, you can see him slamming his hand down on the turntable.

haha, Rob looks cool with his beard/growth.

I finally saw the video. I was watching tv real late last night and it came on mtv. All I can say is "WOW!". I really like the concept of the video. I especially like the last minute of the video when you can actually see their faces. I love it! :)

Nothing was cut out of the video. The rumour was saying that the part where Chester yells
"Hear me out now
You’re going to listen to me
Like it or not
Right now"
was going to be cut out, like it is on some radio stations.

But it wasn&#39;t. So what&#39;s the idea out of it. Don&#39;t trust radio cuz on radio you can&#39;t see. Trust TV where you can see :P
This is the best part of the song - the bridge. They couldn&#39;t just cut it off.
