U2 Releases Video for ‘Every Breaking Wave’

Three months after controversially released Songs of Innocence into the world, U2 continues the unconventional release strategy for their Grammy-nominated album. The Irish rockers are releasing an entire Films of Innocence series of clips directed by politically-minded street artists on Dec. 9.

Directed by South African artist Robin Rhode, the video finds Rhode returning to his street art roots, displaying fish, flags and lightbulbs.

The coolest part is probably around the 3:30 mark, when someone rides a real-life surfboard across a vertical wall covered in 2D waves (via the magic of stop-motion film).
