WATCH: U2 reveal new incendiary video featuring Donald Trump with the KKK

Their sense of humour has never been this dark.

U2 have shared a politically charged video for their single, 'Get Out Of Your Own Way'.


Taken from the band's fourteenth album, Songs of Experience, which was released on 1 December 2017, the track was first dropped in early November.

Using stop-motion and paper, the video goes on the attack by featuring scenes of Donald Trump looking at members of the Ku Klux Klan out on the White House lawn, while also recreating as a scenic holiday postcard the shocking image of Alan Kurdi, a 3-year-old Syrian refugee who drowned.

Directed by an Israeli graffiti collective called Broken Fingaz Crew, the video is not unlike the work of Banksy in how it uses extremely dark humour to look at the current political climate.

All things considered, this is a very different side to the Dublin band.
