As Seen On TV

11 Jul

There are videos that I know got some time on MTV and others I’m not sure about. Truthfully, I didn’t watch much of their programming when I came to learn that music videos weren’t actually much of a priority. I can think of a handful that I’d like you guys to see though. Maybe you saw them on MTV first, and if you enjoyed them, I’ll be the first to thank the network for bringing them to the people. If you haven’t seen them or even one of them, I’m glad the DPV has provided.

I, for one, somehow managed to mostly miss out on the Gorillaz when the project was at its most popular. Years later, I glanced over a friend’s shoulder as he watched this video.

I had to know what was going on. After watching all their other videos and reading up a bit, I’ve got to admit that I haven’t really found any clear reasons for anything that’s going on, but I think it’s cool as hell regardless. Thank you, Grey, for showing me this one.

Once again, I find myself amazed by simplicity, and this video astounds me. A great deal of editing or design is often involved in the creation of psychedelic art, but in this case it’s just raw performance. Never in my life will I be able to pull off a dance like this.

One friend of mine told me he distinctly remembered the morning he saw this video for the first time. He was just about to leave for school, but ended up being late because he just had to stay and watch this masterpiece to the end.

The chances that you haven’t heard the song are flat out nonexistent. Mmmmaybe, just maybe though, this video will today reach a new set of eyeballs out there for the first time.

Nothing groundbreaking going on here, but damn if it’s not catchy. This one is just a guilty pleasure.

And finally, a caricature of all the ills of mankind. No subtlety here.

I hope at least one caught your fancy, whether for the first time or for the first time in a while.
