Weird Ass Videos
Weird, funny and silly music videos, yo!
“Rough Boy” – ZZ Top – Afterburner
This slow jam is one of their most slamming tracks. The intro shuts it down. I’m pretty sure there’s feminist analysis to be had – what with all the disembodied sexy lady legs and such. That said, ZZ’s attempt at edginess results in less sexist imagery than usual. Yay, progress. Nevertheless, this video is odd as shit.
“Rock-a-Lot” – Aretha Franklin – Aretha
I remember seeing this all the time on BET back when they used to play grown folk jams like this. The video is HILARIOUS. I see you, Luke Skywalker, Whodini, and possible soap actor who looks like Buster Poindexter!
“California Love” 2Pac
Ha. It’s got that whole life beyond the thunderdome vibe. This is so weird and funny, but that song is still tight!
“Denial Twist” – The White Stripes
The first time I saw this video I thought my TV was broke! I hit the side a couple of times before my friend said, “I think it’s supposed to be like that!” Damn, I miss the White Stripes. I don’t like his other stuffs. (sorry). I want some more songs about doorbells and disco booty quakers about orchids.
