Music video Updated to HD 720P
The band has released nine music videos but made personal appearances in only the first two, which the band states is to prevent people from “latching onto the personalities involved rather than listening to the music.” With the exception of “Hush” and “Vicarious“, all of Tool’s music videos feature stop motion animation to some extent. The videos are created primarily by Adam Jones, often in collaboration with artists such as Chet Zar, Alex Grey,and Osseus Labyrint.
The “Sober” music video in particular attracted much attention. Jones explained that it doesn’t contain a storyline, but that his intentions were to summon personal emotions with its imagery. Rolling Stone described this imagery by stating that, in the video, “evil little men dwell in a dark dungeon with meat coursing through pipes in the wall” and called it a “groundbreaking”, “epic” clip. Billboard voted it “Best Video By A New Artist”.
