Two versions of the "Jesus of Suburbia" music video exist, directed by Samuel Bayer. One version is a 12-minute edit, complete with a plot and dialogue; the other is a six and a half-minute director's cut, inclusive solely of the music itself and devoid of additives. The six-minute version is censored, whereas the twelve-minute version is not. The video starred Lou Taylor Pucci as Jimmy. Jimmy's love interest (Whatsername) was played by Kelli Garner. Jesus' mother was portrayed by Canadian actress Deborah Kara Unger. The plot of the video essentially follows that of the song. Despite the fact it is the second track, the video reveals Jesus' and Whatsername's relationship before it is revealed in the story. The video pays homage to "1979" by Smashing Pumpkins-it also made use of the snorricam which created the videos' notable up close shots in the convenience store and party scenes.

Mediocre and overlong
8 July 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Jesus of Suburbia" is a Green Day song from 2005, so this music video for this one is already also over 10 years old. The tone in terms of color is mostly green, fitting the band's name, from start to finish and it tells the story of a young male punk living in suburbia, especially about his difficult relationship with his mother. I personally cannot say that these almost 12 minutes (very long for a music video) were a good watch. There is nothing really memorable in here. At times, it was possible to see the director's ambition, but it was also evidence of how his talent or approach was simply not sufficient enough to make this short film as impactful as he wanted it to be. And last but not least, the music by Green Day here is also extremely forgettable unfortunately. There is nothing in this overlong song that makes an impact, nothing that they have not done already during their long career and mostly better. I can only imagine that Green Day fans voted this short film so high as the rating is really inaccurate with quality and I as a neutral observer am not ashamed to admit that. I give this one a thumbs-down. Not recommended.
