I bookmarked the new video on del.icio.us so I could go back and watch it later. Well, last night during the commercial breaks at the end of Pepper Dennis, I finally caught the video for “Not Trying to Make Nice”. I agree with the Popwatch review. It’s been done, and never in such a lame fashion. The video is preachy, but I can’t tell what message I’m supposed to get from it. Don’t dress in period clothing? Don’t let your bandmembers hold you back? The video could have been more subtle and been a lot better. As it is, I have no desire to see it again. The song is nice, but I was so disgusted by the video that I didn’t pay much attention to the song. And doesn’t that go against the point of the music video?
