Video question

Do all Sophie Muller videos look exactly the same? Hand-held cameras spinning around people who are moving in slow motion?

Is it Gwen Stefani? Is it Coldplay? Does it matter?

Back when videos were still an art form I could usually tell who the director was without reading the credits. My favorite was Hype Williams. My least favorite was Samuel Bayer -- it's the same damn smoggy imagery every time. I know he gets a lot of goodwill for Smells Like Teen Spirit, but I swear Bullet with Butterfly Wings and Zombie are the exact same video.

Didn't Sam Bayer direct the new Green Day? "Wake Me Up When September Ends"?
