    lol, i can appreciate a good sense of humor. that definitly made me smile

  7. zzaacc on January 31, 2011 at 8:53 am

    haha LOVED IT!

    MIKE- i was wondering if you(or anyone else reading this) could help with a design for a tattoo. iv been listening to your music for as long as i can remember, LP’s music has helped me through some hard times, and the music really helped me through a bunch of issue i had in the past. I feel as if iv matured with LP’s music, changed as it has changed, and now that i can i would love to show my gratitude. i think there couldnt be a better reason to get some ink done. i was thinking of putting together aspects from each album artwork into one.

    email/msn zac__rules@hotmail.com (i was 12 when i made it😛 )

    thanks for the music

    Anyway, funny video. I like it🙂

  19. royhahn1 on January 25, 2011 at 8:18 am

    This is my piano cover of “The Catalyst”
    I also wrote down the sheets.
    They are in the description, if you want them.

  20. lpanna2010 on January 25, 2011 at 7:59 am

    Great joke and of course very funny video. I guess Chester would be darth vader…or you? I don’t know if you or Chaz is more dancing like that in real. But that are just five on stage, so I think Joe is the missing one.
    …so far about that. Hope your new video to Burning in the skies will come out pretty soon.
    Thx for posting that video but next time please the real one. ^^

  21. an94loveslp on January 25, 2011 at 6:27 am

    oooh ….and i thought its the real video….but it´s so funny😀

    i hope you guys dance like them in real life, too ^^ it would be soo great!!! chester as darth vader….

    It’s so funny, strange for the new Linkin Park video! Hahahah
    Thanks for sharing, you always find cool and funny videos!🙂

  30. Julian on January 25, 2011 at 1:48 am

    I was like ‘WHAT!?’ when I read the email, and ‘WTF!!!’ when I saw this…
    Do an Empty Space Music Video and we’ll see.

  31. icecold25 on January 24, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    Hell of a trick, I’ll give you that. I sensed something weird before viewing it. I knew that you guys like to announce the premiere like 1 or 2 weeks earlier. That was odd but it eventually got me. I do feel a little disappointed but the video made my day. Waiting for your next one.

  32. slowlearner32 on January 24, 2011 at 10:18 pm

    OMG!

  33. lillong on January 24, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    =..=蜀黍你想肿么样

  34. boger7lp on January 24, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    good music of SV
    So you’d be better to keep the A Thousan Suns loud as in this song
    you just have some variation in the instruments
    something that pops and reaches its climax

  35. argol8489 on January 24, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    great … let’s all dance … yeah yeah ….hahaha…I want to be Princess Amidala🙂

  36. thegrandkaidbz on January 24, 2011 at 6:51 pm

  37. brunarj on January 24, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    hahahahaha Mike i knew that will not be the Burning In The Skies videos!! But i know you always find cool or weird videos from you tube(have a lot of it there lol) so i came to check it out!

    BTW this one is very nice! im a Star Wars fan i never saw Vader moving like this hehe!

  38. cincybmxlpfreak on January 24, 2011 at 5:53 pm

  47. ba1210 on January 24, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    … mmmm… in the movements of Darth Vader, I will see much of Mike Shinoda!😀

  48. cctjehh on January 24, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    This must be the best Linkin Park video ever. Once again, great piece of art from our one and only Hahn. I wonder who’s the great black star wars dancer though… seen his length and posture… it must be you Mike. ^^

  49. danibarquilia on January 24, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    Wow! The best Linkin Park music video I’ve ever seen. Can’t wait for the next directed by Hahn. LOL

  50. lapkoola on January 24, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    Mike, you’re unbelievable, man!!! xD
    (Btw, I assume Chester’s trying to fit in Yoda’s costume backstage xP)

  51. troublev on January 24, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Honestly man where do you get these?😀😀😀 I was rolling on my back in laughter! Very good!

  52. evik90 on January 24, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    hahahaaaa, that was really great joke, Mike, the best one here I think xD I have to watch it again, it’s sooo hilarious :DD btw, you’re good dancers, you should prepare some dance moves to improve your shows – I’m sure it would be unforgettable… lol

  53. nikelp96 on January 24, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    Mike, how you could do this?!😀
    When I saw this vid, I thought, that this is Chester .. ;D

  54. jagta on January 24, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    OMG!, THIS VERSION OF BURNING IN THE SKIES is so familiar…. (bit different from the one in ATS)

    YOU ARE PLAGGING MC HAMMER!!! OMG!!

  59. marciatalita on January 24, 2011 at 11:30 am

    You so Idiot kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  60. enjadreal on January 24, 2011 at 11:29 am

    haha that’s as wtf as dancing with stich in disneyland ^^

    anyways, i knew it can’t be that the vid has been cut that fast… but still i had something like… hummmm –> hope? =P

  61. helium3 on January 24, 2011 at 11:29 am

    HAHAHAHAHA

  62. ololoimle on January 24, 2011 at 11:29 am

    Mr. Hahn was right, it’s explosive xD

  63. mesias on January 24, 2011 at 11:18 am

    Mike: Hey, Soldier.
    Soldier: What!
    Mike: I AM YOUR FATHER….

    hahahaha

    Very funny, Mike lol

  64. Rayan Lenox on January 24, 2011 at 11:16 am

    Unexpected))) Very funny!

  65. krezz5 on January 24, 2011 at 11:16 am

    oh you. lol

  66. anitazik on January 24, 2011 at 11:16 am

    that’s your best result of all times!!
    keep moving this way😀

  67. pinkyloulou on January 24, 2011 at 11:16 am

    Chester’s the Vader isn’t he.

  68. marianashi on January 24, 2011 at 11:12 am

    Before I pressed play I was about to ask what kind of shoddy music video might one put out after only a few days of editing and polishing in between tour dates. Having said that, sometimes the ‘amateur look’ has that raw, humble charm that people find so endearing. Take at Ninja Cat on Youtube, for example. They could make an edited, polished horror out of that clip but it wouldn’t be half as effective🙂

  69. aline4lp on January 24, 2011 at 11:12 am

    Great video, Mike😉
    I can’t wait for the REAL video…

  70. riachen on January 24, 2011 at 11:09 am

    Boah I thought Jippe I can be one of your first fans watching Burning in the Skies and then I saw that… Lol Mike, when I read this I was sure that there is something wrong. Cause you wrote (next page),hä?! But my happiness about that was bigger than my mind and I did not really recognize it. You are really funny. Check out this video on youtube:

    By the way, try not to laugh or to grin. When you manage that you are a champ. I watched that so many times, but i never managed that.^^

  72. Kristiina on January 24, 2011 at 11:01 am

    Mike, NOT funny😀 i thought it was the real thing! Well, you are genius anyways:)

  73. tentenxhinata on January 24, 2011 at 11:01 am

    Well…first I must address the questions in ADIEK84’s post.
    First, I agree.
    Second, Joe is missing…his previous camera died so he had to film from the crowd.
    Third, the costumes are what took so long, Mike had a hard time finding the right material. Oh and BTW Dave is both the choreographer and Darth Vader! (o.o)

    Lastyly Id like to say that while you guys did a fab job on the vid, Couls you not post so many teasers? I wanna see thing next time, thanks in advance Mike! ^^

    ~Lena

  74. vickykun on January 24, 2011 at 11:01 am

    uauahhu lol

    Those stormtroopers are hot;.;

    oh noes how nerd I am know?

  75. tinalein76 on January 24, 2011 at 10:55 am

    Its really funny🙂 Cool🙂

  76. adiek84 on January 24, 2011 at 10:51 am

    Wow, I think you’ve really outdone yourself with this one! First, I have to say, that I’ve been waiting since forever for another Linkin Park choreography. One step closer video was a good approach but unfortunately you’ve neglected the dancing in the coming years.
    Second, only five guys in the video? Who is missing? Who didn’t want to wear the costume? Brad didn’t want to ruin his hair do?
    Third, Joe honestly needed 3 DAYS to shoot this??? What took him so long? The costumes? The dance routine? Finding a set?
    Fourth (:D), I really like this video edit of Burning in the Skies. Way better than the original! Well done, guys!

  77. Ladysami on January 24, 2011 at 10:48 am

    😀 LOL
    Mike,are you the one of stormtroopers ? or darth vader ?🙂

  78. jadesloth on January 24, 2011 at 10:41 am

    damn you!!!😄

  79. keineahnung84 on January 24, 2011 at 10:32 am

    ROFLMAO…that was hilarious!!!!
    btw have you ever watched “chad vader” on youtube??? that series is awesome too…darth vader working as a nightshift manager of a supermarket…ROFL

  80. lorenalp on January 24, 2011 at 10:29 am

    hahahahahaha!!!😀 At first i thought it was realy burning in the skies😥

  81. dorito82 on January 24, 2011 at 10:27 am

  82. toxichotel on January 24, 2011 at 10:25 am

    I am very disappointed, i havnt seen enough special effects,fire & explosions. However i am happy with the costumes used. I bet Joe is the black one🙂.

  96. Claudia B. on January 24, 2011 at 10:08 am
