Our friend Jason Free is one of U2's video wizards. He's worked with them on a bunch of projects—their iPod commercial, their 3D movie, and now their current tour, which is in-the-round, with a giant crown of a video screen. Of all the projects Jason has done with U2, our fave was done a couple nights ago. It was U2's final night at Croke Park in Dublin—the third of a three night residency. There's a section of the video show dedicated to the ONE campaign. During that part of the show, Jason popped a special guest up on the video crown: Pablo!
That is one of our favorite pictures of Pablo. If you don't recall, Jo Ann took this photo of Pablo while they were riding in Michael Ross' golf cart in Palm Springs. I believe they were going to the Ace Hotel. We love this photo because the pure joy radiating from Pablo's face is s o P a b l o. We love it cos the love radiating from Pablo's face is s o P a b l o. We loved it when Pablo was sitting next to us looking at the pic with us. We love it even more now, as it reminds us of, well, Pablo. That photo is EXACTLY the way Pablo looked. And he looked this way most of the time. The perfect image to beam above 20,000 people in Dublin, Ireland. He was free.
Pablo will always be f r e e.
