    All of my pictures made me burst out laughing. It was awful execution on the video's part. However if it ended up picking pictures of my ex, that would have blown me away.

    can't get the video to work through any browser so I watched the 'blank' pictures video on youtube and even knowing that some of my pictures would have been in some of the shots, I still think this is a subpar video. Maybe I just don't understand the point, but it is just a bunch of people crying and I have no idea why they are all so god damn sad, lol. oh well, atleast it was a nice set piece.

    Haha, I made a facebook account and put 10 pictures on it that said "The Game". Priceless reactions.

    1. You cannot personally manipulate anything in the video, thus I would not personally consider it interactive.
    2. The idea has been done before and if I am correct I think the director has done something similar or maybe even the same thing, thus a rehash.

    Still it's pretty cool but the algorithms for choosing photos suck.

    Conclusion: A mediocre video for a mediocre song.

    Meh. It's an interesting concept and I'm sure the work that went into this is impressive.

    But if this is the music video for LOST IN THE ECHO, then his seems to be a waste. LITE is one of the best songs on the album for me - it deserves better.

    I actually burst out laughing at my photos. The serious concept of the video mixed with my Facebook photos did not work. I actually don't like this idea at all, would rather have just seen the band perform, but hey bit different I suppose.

    i never thought LP would release a music video worse than the Burning In The Skies video. I was wrong.

    The video is a great idea BUT flawed by horrible execution. Hard to believe this is a Linkin Park product.

    That was good: not the "interactive" aspect but the video itself. The ambience and the cast conveyed some creepy, personal emotions. In the end, it gave a surreal texture to the video. Reminded me somewhat of Dreams by Akira Kurosawa.

    Yeah, it's on a level with the Burning in the Skies video for me, but I appreciate the band trying something different than what they usually do. I'll probably watch the Official video once and then forget about it. I rarely watch any LP videos so this really doesn't bother me.

    The stage was cool.

    But that was pretty much the only thing I found cool lol

    So far, the LT videos have been their worst, at least to me.

    I don't know WTF that was, but it was awesome, LOL.

    As for the topic on hand: When i think of Bad LP music videos, I think of BID, WFTE, BITS, Iridescent. Also included in that list is not LITE. God Job LP! First good video since The Catalyst!

    I don't know if this has been posted before but the first thing that came to my mind "interacting" with this was that, which is awesome btw; :p

    I liked the video but I agree the band has gotten worse at them. Only good videos from ATS on are The Catalyst and LITE

    The setting was awesome, but the entire video itself was...weird. The band wasn't even in it, which is unusual. I could've gotten over that if the rest of the video had been good.

    Oh well, music videos are the least important part (to me anyways) about a band.

    It was a pretty cool idea but it had the potential to be so much better.
