Yeah XD.
Now people can't blame Bayer. "Oh, it's just Tre..."
The interviewer in fact seemed to rather enjoy talking about that video as well XD.

Good interview, though. I mean, it's just nice to see all of these clips coming out...

...Also, on a completely unrelated note... for UK people, what accent does that guy have? (Don't shoot me >_>.)

I'm sure it was partly the band's idea, but I think Billie Joe was just referring to the increased levels of nudity being Tre's idea, not the entire concept itself :lol:

Yeah he seemed to imply the idea was there but Tre was trying to push the envelope in terms of what they wear...

I feel like hearing Billie talk about the "Oh Love" video shoot releases a lot of the tension surrounding it....at least for me ( and no, I didn't mean "sexual tension" ;) )

Is that sarcasm? I honestly can't tell.

If it was, and well, even if it wasn't, that wasn't exactly what I meant.....Just with all the arguments about where the idea came from and what the video was supposed to mean etc. It was nice to get some straight-forward discussion and answers. Of course, he totally threw Tre under the bus lol....But I like that he acknowledged that the video was a total curveball in terms of what people normally expect from them, and that they intentionally ramped up the silliness in order to make things *less* awkward and uncomfortable.

The way the interviewer framed the questions, he clearly was expecting Billie to give a typical horny "guy" answer about how awesome it was to be surrounded by naked chicks. And he didn't.

I don't care if their questions weren't interesting, they were hilarious:) What did you expect when fans were suposed to ask questions, it wasn't not suposed to be interesting, it was suposed to be fun. I just think it was great to see them so happy and not so quiet.

No, it wasn't sarcasm. I didn't actually realize there was so much argument about where the idea came from. But I totally appreciated that he did not answer the way the interviewer was expecting.

The interviewer seemed to make a lot of assumptions in general actually. I mean, it isn't a unique thing; a lot of times that's what happens in interviews. Billie Joe likes to dodge those expectations, though...

Oh yes, the "Oh Love" video thread was (and, I imagine, still is....I stopped following it once it moved on to a second thread) an absolute wasteland of despair.
