Audience Selection: Which music videos make you laugh?
28 March 2013
From the witty to the strange and sublime, comedy has always been a huge part of music video. With countless self-references, endless parody and ironic slants, a viewer is often hard pressed to find a sincere creation in the world of pop video.
The Art of Pop Video shows the surreal creations of Michel Gondry equipped with Lego bricks and mummified dancers alongside the dead pan OK Go with their very own choreographed dog dance video that makes Crufts look (even more) mediocre and unimpressive.
Whether it's the Beastie Boy's Sabotage, or the story of a dancing milk carton in Blur's Coffee and TV, or Spike Jonze's fictional dance troupe in Fatboy Slim's Praise You, the question is, what’s tickling you?
