    Default Best VH Video Ever?

    K mods erase this if it's been posted before. But just saw this video, and even though the guys don't play an actual note, in terms of spirit, it might just be the best van halen video ever - I'd like to think if VH was a band of young kids in 2014, this is the video they'd make:

    I like the "Pretty Woman" video; the dance sequences in "Hot for Teacher" - and I also have a bit of a soft spot for the "Runaround" vid. - especially the bits where Ed pretends to play the guitar.

    "Jump" … Is iconic …

    … The simplicity of it all made it standout amongst all those expensive hi end production values of the day …

    It does appear that these kids spent more time filming and editing this video than Van Halen did on their "She's The Woman" video.
    Right here I say....

    Hey, that's me!

    No, seriously, I'm the guitar player in that video. I helped concept the video with one of my best friends, he did the shooting and editing. Long story short: 8 hours of underwater filming - wait two weeks - 6 hours of above water filming and filming the jumps into the water, 4 cheap, waterlogged instruments, and voila, you've got and underwater Jump music video.

    Everybody in that video is actually an extremely talented musician, but the keyboard player didn't bother to learn the song for the video shoots. I'm no EVH by any means, but here's some proof of "actual notes."

    Jedi - Great stuff! It was funny when the Jump video started I was wondering why you had some half-assed Peavey Frankie. Haha... then you jumped in the pool and it all made sense.



    Love your attitude, dude. You have a shit load of talent but you never look like you take yourself too serious. That's the way to be.


    Fantastic job with Eruption.

    While not a "music video" like we think of now with the production values and high concepts, THIS is the best Van Halen video ever:



    That's the real deal there.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    SH*T!!!

    I'm so sorry - I didn't even watch the video until I read the rest of the comments on here!

    Jedi - that is GREAT! Fair play to all you guys - what a cool concept...The keyboard solo looked like it required quite some lung capacity there!

    Live BOBW that MTV played as a solo Video from LWAN

    That one hooked me
    It is what it is

    I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said

    I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.

    Panama!

    That one really quick dressing room shot when everyone looks at the camera, holds their drink up and yells "Panama". That's pretty much the entire attitude and vibe of Van Halen and its fanbase in one very quick nutshell.
