    You're right. I swear I changed it... must have lost an update somewhere.

    Will fix.
    There you go. I hadn't FTP'd the latest version over to the server!

    OK. some conflicting views about the song and video.

    Thankfully some random dude on Youtube has opined from the front seat of his car.

    https://youtu.be/C-yRYmGUigw

    The sophistication is next level. Car seems to be parked in a McDonalds carpark. Probably filmed after dropping off the kids to the ex-wife.
    The pathos is actually heartbreaking. One is reminded of that lonely and deluded Rob Brydon series about the taxi driver stalking his ex-wife.

    He refers to himself in the third person. He even has the nerve to mention PayPal and bitcoin. He probably just needs a hug.

    Compared to this video, which is nicely done :

    I recall a 1994 video from Blues Traveller in which a fake band is on stage pretending to play the music. The fake band is young, edgy, fashionable, sexy.

    The real band is actually playing backstage.

    They mix it up with a bit of a Wizard of Oz "man behind the curtain" homage as well.





    .

    Possibly inspired by Milli Vanilli being exposed as frauds in 1989.

    Takes me back to the guitar solo on Stairway to Heaven from The Song Remains the Same...

    Ok. I've done my own research on this cat.
    So far so good, long lank hair and goatee. Tick.
    Cut his graphics teeth on the weather channel. Tick. Doesn't hail from Iceland as previously thought. But from Atlanta Georgia. Tick. Works for loads of metal/prog bands. Tick. Seems like a nice,humble guy. Tick. As he says, he's just a fan. Tick.

    Took on board ideas from Geoff. Tick.

    But the video is still shockingly poor. It has no resonance to Yes. I can’t see anyone watching it who then deicides I am going to buy the album

    Hooley Dooley. Never good karma to have your current squeeze in a video. Though JLo probly had Ben in one back in the day. Exception to the rule

    Courtney Cox used to be the go-to girl for music videos for eye candy. Springsteen? Bon Jovi? Counting Crows? She still scrubs up pretty OK. 50 is the new 30. And all that. Though she may only do Snow Patrol videos now. 😍

    Two of the better videos, OOALH and FFH actually portray anxious men escaping threats. But as this is a love song and a paen to communal sacrifice, an anxious man could be consoled by a lover. (And a nurse!) Hooley Dooley!

    Based on the photo, she's definitely young and good looking enough looking to play herself (or authorize her image to be used) in a video like this. Of course, even putting it that way makes me wonder if it should even matter- this isn't the MTV era where looks were paramount for music videos anyway, the audience for a Yes video on YouTube might value authenticity over appearance anyway (Although, as I said, maybe it's just me, but she looks gorgeous for 50 [ish], so I don't think that's the tradeoff anyway).

    It’s a real shame they didn’t use this video as an opportunity to do a shot for shot remake of Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again” only set to the music of “A Living Island”.
