Johnny Cash Fans?

I just saw the new video for Johnny Cash's song, God's Gonna Cut You Down, and I thought I would share it with you. I'm not typically a country music fan per say, but I love me some Johnny Cash. I have been a fan since my Pawpaw (ya'll now I'm from the Appalachian mt's right?) would sit down with his guitar and sing his songs to me when I was little. "Play that prison song again Pawpaw!! Please!!" My heart broke when he passed away, but I was not surprised. I knew he wouldn't last long (4 months!) without his beloved June. Now that's a love story right there. I must admit, I was quite suprised by the video in that it was not what I expected. A long list of *celebrities (Kate Moss? huh?) appear in the video, which appears to be a tribute to The Man In Black. Now it seems that many fans have extremely differing opinions on it. Some love it. Some are just plain ticked off. What do you think?

*Iggy Pop, Kanye West, Chris Martin, Kris Kristofferson, Patty Smith, Terrence Howard, Flea, Q-Tip, Adam Levine (Maroon 5), Chris Rock, Justin Timberlake, Kate Moss, Sir Peter Blake, Sheryl Crow, Dennis Hopper, Woody Harrelson, Amy Lee (Evanescence), Tommy Lee, Dixie Chicks, Mick Jones, Sharon Stone, Bono, Shelby Lynne, Anthony Kiedis, Travis Barker, Lisa Marie Presley, Kid Rock, Jay Z, Keith Richards, Billy Gibbons, Corinne Bailey Rae, Johnny Depp, Graham Nash, Brian Wilson, Rick Rubin, and Owen Wilson
