Greetings! Welcome to this week’s installment of This Week In Music Videos, the weekly ET Canada blog feature that does what it says on the tin.
Every Friday we showcase the biggest, boldest and brightest music videos that have tumbled out into the world over the past seven days. Some are fantastic, a few are garbage and occasionally there’s one or two that redefine the way we look at the art of buttshaking. It’s a delightful place to be.
Alright, let’s hop to it.
Bastille – Oblivion THIS SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! TAKE IN SOME HARDCORE DEMOLITION DERBY ACTION! ACTION! ACTION! SOUNDTRACKED BY A COLDPLAY-ESQUE SOFT ROCK NUMBER THAT’S VERY GENTLE! GENTLE! GENTLE!
Spoon – Do You We’re not aiming to spoil this video’s big reveal, but we would like to note that Britt Daniel appears to be driving through a terrifying scenario that might require a phone call to Rick Moranis.
Basement Jaxx featuring ETML – Never Say Never Behold! Twerkbot 1.0. Jaxx Industries may be the company behind the futuristic behind that is Twerkbot 1.0. (check out those machine-washable buttocks!) but we’re 80% sure this is how Skynet got started.
Röyksopp & Robyn – Do It Again This year’s elite Norway-n-Sweden electro pop connection are here to strike out against tyranny and occasionally model bits of rope.
Ice Cube featuring 2 Chainz & Redfoo – Drop Girl (NSFW Language) Ice Cube, 2 Chainz and the uncle out of LMFAO appear to have entered the “big head’ code from NBA Jam before starting work on this new promo. For those of you keeping track of such things, this is the second video to come out this week with a “laboratory of butt research”; theme.
Fast Romantics – Friends This freshly released video from Fast Romantics dives headfirst into clips of old TV commercials from the ’50s and ’60s. Say, someone should look into making an hour-long drama focusing on the advertising industry in the 1960s. That’d be really neat. What’s that? Really? When? That many Emmys, eh? Fair enough.
“Weird Al”; Yankovic – First World Problems From the looks of things, “Weird Al”; Yankovic’s recent music video blitz has proven to be a winning strategy. In additional “Weird Al”; news, his cult classic UHF has just gotten the adult entertainment parody treatment. (The link’s SFW, but all bets are off if you decide to tumble further down that super bonkers rabbit hole.)
That wraps things up for this week’s installment of TWIMV, but we’ll be back next week with a vending machine full of new videos.
Play us out, The Family International!
