Dial “C” for Cameos
I love me a music video cameo. Here are some excellent videos with cameos of beloved actors, performances and whatnot. I don’t count Ringo’s vast appearance in videos as cameos. or Ja Rule. They’d go to the opening of a utility bill.
“Word Up” – Cameo
To this day, I still LOL @ Levar Burton as the “detective” on the trail of funkmaster Larry Blackmon and the crew. Also, that dancing cop, who just can’t resist the funk is HEE LARRY OUS.
“They Don’t Know About Us” – Tracey Ullman
BEST CAMEO EVER.
“When the Going Gets Tough” – Billy Ocean
Michael Douglas has some moves, baby. This is quite possibly my favorite cameo by celebs. Michael, Kathleen and Danny are really good back up singers. I still do their moves when I hear this song. This performance cemented my love for Michael Douglas. I already knew that Kat and Danny were cool, but was still undecided about Douglas.
“Rush Rush” – Paula Abdul
Keanu Reeves gives one of his best cinematic performances in a role requiring his facial expressions to change and he not speak more than two lines. Phenomenal. There’s a debate as to exact who is singing this song, but there’s no debate that Reeves channeled some of his River’s Edge cuteness and is quite dreamy in this video.
“Wild Wild West – Will Smith
Salma! Kool Moe Dee! Stevie Wonder! Oh my. I don’t care what anyone says, this song is amazing and I have a soft spot for the movie. Will Smith always brings me happiness. Here. You can take away my cool points. I don’t need them. I’m dancing! *does the cowgirl*
