WORST VIDEO of 2007
Call for Nominations for the worst video of the year!
Worst can mean: overhyped, lazy, derivative, or just plain awful.
I'll go ahead and nominate Bjork "Earth Intruders" Dir: Michel Ocelot... she used to have a flawless videography, which has been mucked up in the last few years, and this one is simply the worst evar.
And Interpol "The Heinrich Maneuver" Dir: E. Elias Merhige... just so boring, and the tone was so off. An Interpol video should never feature a Paris Hilton parody... so dumb.
Bjork - Declare Independence Dir. Michel Gondry
Sorry Gondry, for how much hype this had, it was terribly disappointing
Simian Mobile Disco - I Believe Dir. Romain Gavras
If I wanted to watch poor people lip synch, I'd (Insert witty comment here)
Client - Lights Go Out/The Presets - My People
These are one entry because they both use the same cheap effect.
Second on "Earth Intruders". WTF BJORK?! Where are the life size dancing cats, giant stuffed artichokes and tanks driven by small Icelandic women?
We have a venue for the haters but no one's showing up!
Omaha Bitch "dancing cyprene"
mandy moore - extraordinary
Ace did some really great videos this year (willowz, aesop rock) but this was not one of them.
klaxons - 'gravity's rainbow'
mark ronson - 'stop me'
Yes both of them
kate nash 'mouthwash'
kate nash 'pumpkin soup'
Yes both of them again
bloc party 'hunting for witches'
lightspeed Champion - 'tell me what it's worth'
interpol "the heinrich maneuver"
were there two versions of 'pumpkin soup'? where is the second?
Elvis & Lisa Marie Presley - "In The Ghetto" dir. Tony Kaye
Lil Mama - "Lip Gloss" dir. R. Malcom Jones
Jennifer Lopez - "Do It Well" dir. David LaChapelle
Madonna - "Hey You" dir. Madonna & Johan Soderberg
Groove Armada - "Song 4 Mutya (Out of Control)" dir. Simon Henwood
Justin Timberlake - "What Goes Around Comes Back Around" dir. Samuel Bayer
lip gloss, no way! That video was a ton of fun and exactly what it needed to be.
I liked 'do it well' also, for what it was.
but haters can't be choosers....
21 noms and counting. time to poll?
Worst vid of the year comes from the guy who claims to have invented cubism:
certainly one of the the best/worst posts of the year, that, lusk.
i really like that stuart gosling video - its the pedantic "i invented a new artistic movement" thats annoying, not the video... in my view. Anyway, i think that video's a couple of years old.
M.I.A. - Paper Planes (MTV Edit)
Klaxons - Gravity's Rainbow
Jennifer Lopez - Do It Well
Mark Ronson - Stop Me
Can I nominate Klaxons - Golden Skans or is that 2007?
