"Beautiful" (Video)


Finally... the radio-edit length version of Eminem's "Beautiful" video is here. Filmed at a few Detroit landmarks, including Tiger Stadium, Michigan Central Station (a.k.a. the old train depot) and the Packard Plant on Detroit's Eastside- this video is filled with beauty. It's a tremendous shame what condition these structures have been left to decay into... but they are still beautiful.
Below are a few photos I took on the set.

RIP Tiger Stadium...

Everytime I hear this song it gives me chills and seeing the video he just made for it makes it an even more powerful song. I hope people really see what he is doing in this video for Detroit. Some are oblivious to what that city is going through and been through.

.Great video. Not being from Detroit, can't believe they just have these building's just sitting there allowing them to rot away. I thought i read they were going to do something with Tiger Stadium and not rip it down because of the history it has. Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb etc, I guess not

I love how they carefully filmed each shot, it definitely is a beautiful video. It's close to being one of my favorite tracks on the album but I think Deja Vu is better (but it wouldn't fit the theme of the video anyways)

What I don't get is why they have to cut the video with that radio edited version when Stan & When I'm Gone both were filmed in full 6 mins. length!!

I wish iTunes store Thailand has music and video sections! Most of the store in Asia only sells applications which is sad. I can't support my favorite artist even if I want to :(

The video is one of the things you can't just go and buy it in CD store.
