Stuck In A Moment You Cant Get Out Of (U2) Easter Egg - U2's Singer "Bono" - Football Player?

On the "Stuck In A Moment You Cant Get Out Of" video you will notice most of the action falls on a football kicker who misses the final shot, causing his team to loose.

There is an over the shoulder shot where you can see the jersey with the kicker's last name: HEWSON.

U2's lead singer artistic name is Bono. His real name is Paul Hewson.

Actually,it's not an egg-it's an inside joke,as guitar player The Edge's real name is also revealed as well.There are TONS of references to U2's past in the video. (Lemons vs.Flys, cowboy hats,mirrorballs,etc.)

They did the whole Hewson thing, because it was right after Bono's dad died. His dad was also a mailman, hence the old mailman at the end.

There were two videos made for this song. The "football" version for american/Canadian viewers and the other version, where Bono gets beaten up in an alley, (I think)For europe and Australia

Yeah, if you notice the very beginning of the video, the fake sports announcer says that the football player's name is Paul whatever, and yes, I saw that on VH1 too. so much for catching them yourself.

You're right DJ! I got so amazed with the Hewson thing that I missed the other references the first time I saw the video! :)

Um, were there two clips for this song? I live in Aus and this whole "football game" thing is a mystery.
