Yeah, Girlzzzzz Rock, and I love it.

So one of the shows I'm watching (Accel World) changed their OP song. The version they use isn't too bad, mainly cause it's only got one small bit of this crappy rapping. So I listened to the whole song, and it's got a lot more crappy rapping to the point it's ridiculous. Then I saw this PV, and I can't figure out if any single thing about it isn't completely ridiculous. Good job, Japan!

Dropping this here as well, because it's both striking and conceptually a shaggy dog story. Or something.

Yup, they keep a-coming.

The unedited version of the video for Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines shows that music videos have the potential to be true pieces of art.

From the annals of creativity means incomprehensibility, right? is this video for Archive's "Bullets" (the "Cyberpunk 2077 trailer song"):



It almost gets somewhere at the end, but...yeah. I don't think this does well even in the genre of "character confronting themselves in a music video".

There's no obscurity to this song, but I'd managed to avoid it by not listening to radio. However, I came across someone's fanvid to Night Vale using this song and found I liked it.

Then I found the official video. This is a thing of beauty.



Also, I died of laughter. But really, it's a cunning little bit of storytelling, and the WTF hilarity is an amazing contrast to the bombastic melodrama of the song.

Eric -- I haven't listened to much radio lately, and hadn't heard any Imagine Dragons songs yet, but that video was pretty cool.

Was the guy in the white suit Lou Diamond Phillips? (Albeit a bit older than he was in the last movie I saw him in.)

EDIT: Google sez yes.
