I've been watching this board for a while now and I love it.

I have two questions 'bout the music video.

1. Do any of you know how the '9' and the old man is an homage to Burt Reynolds?

2.  On the commentary PTA talks about an oldfashioned boring cameratrick. Do you know how they did it?

I'm sure I've read a fuller explanation somewhere, quite possibly on these boards, but I can't find it. PTA explains the 9: "There's an interview with Burt from Good Morning America. It's very hard to describe -- it's insane. He wears a purple suit and he speaks about "9" It's hard to describe."

If you look closely, you see a door close behind Michael Penn for a split second (ie he went into a door on one side of the barrier and came out of a door on the other side.) Not really a camera trick, but hey-ho!
