“Wide Open” is the latest music video from the British electronic duo The Chemical Brothers. In this Dom & Nic-directed video, dancer Sonoya Mizuno (who many of you will remember from Ex Machina) slowly morphs into a synthetic version of herself.
For some reason, Rick Springfield decided to freeze himself in the 1980s, only to be accidentally woken up in 2016. It’s a glorious future with strange aliens and dance moves.
Seriously, Hollywood keeps making weird-ass fairytale movies. And they really ought to take a note from this insane new Taylor Swift video for “Out of the Woods,” which does for fairytales what her “Bad Blood” vid did for action movies.
You know what your day is missing? Existential angst from the appendix. Which is what “Body of Songs: The Appendix” provides, in the form of an anthropomorphized appendix singing and dreaming about being cut out.
Weird Al made a splash with his latest album Mandatory Fun last year, and he’s been on the road ever since. He’s just released his latest music video that compiles all of his wacky concert intros.
‘If I Move To Mars’ is the latest song from New Zealand artist Thomas Oliver, and it comes with a great video of an astronaut jamming out as he spins away in orbit. The world needs more Apollo-styled guitars.
In PilotPriest’s video for their song The Last Goodbye, an astronaut goes off on a desperate chase after her companion jets off into space.
This video for “Sound & Color” by the Alabama Shakes is just a brilliant tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, including lots of one-point perspective shots and some lovely white corridors. And it has an amazing storyline about an astronaut who wakes from cryogenic sleep to discover an unpleasant truth.
For Red Nose Day, Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage is singing a hilarious blues jam about the fact that he’s “Still Going Strong” after Ned Stark, Robert Baratheon and so many other great characters have died. Basically, he’s paid the cost to be the boss. [h/t Frank!]
Here it is — the video for “Pretty Girls” by Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea, which is supposedly inspired by the classic movie Earth Girls Are Easy. The best part is where the women say things like “Your alien powers are like totally radical” to Iggy, who’s a visiting alien who just wants to party.
Musical artist Panda Bear — a.k.a. Noah Lennox from Animal Collective — is renowned for creating some of the most daring and experimental electronic music today. His new animated video for "Boys Latin" captures these psychedelic moods perfectly.
Shit, you guys — this video for Daphne Guinness' song "An Evening in Space" is so great. It's just nonstop weird fashions and bodypaint and decadance and spaceships, with a very David Bowie-esque sound and feel. Oh, and it's probably NSFW, so watch out.
Western cyberpunk creators borrowed a lot from Japanese culture in the 1980s — but judging from this video by J-Pop diva Anri, it went both ways. Watch as our heroine puts on her mirror shades and hacks into cyberspace, only to be pursued by a dark avatar.
I'll cut to the chase: Around the 1:50 mark in this video, Ariana Grande launches missiles from her breasts at a robot. That would be enough, but her whole attitude is like "Yawn, just another day on Mars." She even tosses her hair and shakes her head while she does it!
I can't even tell you how much I love this music video. Because truly, there is no greater, more universal sign of professional and financial success than wearing enormous green foam fists on your hands.
Want to trip out your brain for a few minutes? Watch OK Go's new music video for their song "The Writing's on the Wall" and delight in what you can do with mirrors, paint, and objects in the proper position.
In the most inevitable pop culture crossover of the decade, rapper Puff Daddy has finally followed his bliss and made a music video inspired by Game of Thrones. Frankly, I'm nothing but impressed at his restraint in taking so long to put himself on a replica of the Iron Throne.
There are almost no words for just how strange an experience watching the eleven videos Fall Out Boy did for their last album is. They basically took the money for music videos and made a horror film instead. It's a thing of utter weirdness even before Elton John shows up as God.
Check out the video for Janelle Monae's cover of David Bowie's "Heroes," which came out the other day. In which Monae is a comic-book superhero who inspires bullied kids to become their own made-up heroes. This is the soundtrack to your Friday evening celebration, right here.
Our favorite K-Pop group 2NE1 are striking back against a virtual-reality gated community for the wealthy, in the epic music video for their new-ish song "Come Back Home." This is because one of their boyfriends lost himself in VR, using a bootleg setup and some crushed-up pills, to escape from the dystopian future.
