Bank of America’s Jim DuBois and some dult on guitar show the world how to utterly ruin the honest and pure message of one of our most beautiful and poignant songs. I hope Bono and the rest of the guys in U2 actually find a way to to sue these idiots and give some of their precious and celebrated money to one of the many countries choked by debt. I don’t think I have ever witnessed a more disgusting display of the blatant bastardization of someone’s artistic work. Great job Bank of America and Jim DuBois! What in the world were you thinking! Seriously! It’s a U2 song! What a bunch of tools. I’m telling you, rolling what little money I have into a ball and shoving it under my mattress for safe-keeping is beginning to sound like a great alternative to these sorts of banks.
