YouTube Animator Directs U2 Premiere

By Michele Flannery

There's something extra special about the U2 global premiere on the homepage today: it was directed by David O'Reilly of Octocat fame, which spawned thousands of tribute videos on YouTube. Since then, O'Reilly has gone on to win animation festivals with such oddball shorts as "Please Say Something". His most recent success? Being tapped by fellow Irishmen U2 to create the video for their latest single, "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight."

In addition, we've got a few rare live performances from U2's "secret" sold-out club appearances that were filmed earlier this year, plus an interview with the band from Fez, Morocco, where they recorded their 12th studio album.
