    jerry was a race car driver my Primus. Les is definitly goofy looking. Anyone else notice that little face jerk he always does? It's like he snaps his head back or something.

    for a while i liked Hey Ya by Outkast. Especially the "love haters" in the green jockey silks doing the fingers bit.

    I think the new one by Enimem & D12 is just about the best thing i have seen in a long time. I cant recall what the song is called, but its about how D12 is his band and no-one knows who they are. Its good to see people who have a sense of humor about themselves. Especially when they use it well.
     
  5. Jason Mraz - You and I Both. Great music video. Watch it.

    I hardly ever (get to) see videos, but Learning to Fly by the Foo Fighters was very funny, and quite good acting too.
     
  7. I like how so many of them try to look so angry and dangerous. I don't know, playing music just doesn't piss me off that much...

    I wonder how long it will be till one of the female pop stars does a video with full frontal.

    They started as provocative now they are getting trashier and trashier.

    It won't happen, mock nudity is often times more sexual than nudity.

    I just saw a very good video from Kanye West. The whole thing was in 1st person(Kanye's) perspective, and the camera work was very well done. In addition to that there was a fair share of light heartedness and humor. I forget the song name though.
     
  12. the stuff on mtv, especially hiphop and r&b videos are getting more and more extreme. there was some Nelly video that was straight out porn, no less. so I woulnd't be so sure..


    anyway, funny videos:
    most videos by the Beastie Boys. especially Sabotage and Body Movin'.

    I agree that more and more explicit content is added to videos.

    I friend of mine recently showed me BET Uncut, I was shocked that they could show that on television, even that late at night.

    It doesn't matter. Riding the edge is what is sexy, not crossing it. Because, you can glorify sex and outline it and be provocative but in the end, sex isn't that, the image of sex is more important than the actual thing. Aside from that, the FCC are lameoids so don't expect anything beyond what we see now.


    Great videos, "fight for your right(to party)" has a good video as well.

    Aphex Twin's "Windowlicker" video is pretty funny, only the uncut version though(with the 5 minute intro movie) Otherwise it's just really ****ing strange.

    The presidents of the united states of america have some funny videos too.
     
  19. Yeah, I guess.. But seriously, I wouldn't have expected that Nelly video to be shown on tv, either. Of course, it was during night time, but anyway.


    Yes :). And "Intergalactic"
