    feel this video is the wrong way to do silly Dave ala Childish Dave, which is a definite character trait in DM (LOL)...didn't like it, care for it, i am now stupider for having buying it_LOL...but the song is good!

    For those who wonder the meaning behind the video, go look at Dave's Twitter page. He gives a short explanation on the video. Basically he just wanted to do something different and funny...Kind of like the title of the song, Funny the Way it is.

  • Not my favorite

    By thanku4riskingmylife
    look, i really loved the song and especially the new album but the song itself was about the troubles of the world, about starving kids and soldiers dying and i would have liked to see a meaningful video come out of that.It wasnt done. I thought the video was pointless and puts an eyesore on OUTSTANDING videos like crash into me. The video could have been amazing like i said but the idea of it just falls flat. Does anybody know what video is next, though? I hope its shake me like a monkey personally.

    I love this song, but I am not a big fan of the video. I was expecting a video that would top the charts for months, but this is no where close. When I first saw it, I could no believe that the Dave Mathews Band did this video. This video is not completly horrible, but it is no where near the quality of their other music videos.
  • Can I get a refund?

    Love the new CD and especially this song, so I was very excited to see a music video listed. What a disappointment. I have never critized any of DMBs work, but this was a big let-down. Some material copied from Eh Hee. The only original material was very corny. This song deserves a better effort than this.
  • simply amazing

    i love the meaning, the song, the lyrics, everything about this sound and the video just enhances the incredibleness of it. dave matthews is hilarious and i just love how ironic the video is.
  • Video is awful

    By Chicago41
    Back in 93 - 98 I could understand these videos. This video was stupid and i am a huge DMB fan but come on we need to call it the way we see it. I miss the songs like # 41 and two step. I hope DMB can deliver a good album and some good videos before they hang it up. I was disapointed in this Groo Grux King album and now the video is just as bad. DMB needs to get back to it's root's and bring the deep lyrics back instead of funny the way it is - I am because I am cmon lets get serious. DMB fans are the most loyal fans and we deserve better than this crap.
  • Dave Matthews Band is awesome!

    I think this music video is awsome. It's 100 percent something Dave would do. I love it great song and such an awesome new album. If you don't get this video you are thinking to hard. The song is called Funny the Way it is. And yet there is nothing funny about the song it's actually about some disturbing situations. I think if you watch Dave in this video you see him displaying these feelings in his actions. Like the magnet letters on the fridge at the beginning say "this is not funny". I also think Dave is a talented actor, one take is all this took him.
  • Awesome

    By Dre_Musica
    Funny how I was expecting something completely different. But really awesome video. Dnt kno why so many dont like it. At first I was a little skeptical but then I opened up to the idea and anyways its very fun to watch over and over. ONE TAKE wow! I love in the beginning how the smoke makes a nice transition from the kitchen to the big spotlight. BRILLIANT!!!!
