Imagine this- You go and search up this song on Youtube. You have never seen the video before but you are in love with the song. You finally get a chance to see the video. You watch the whole thing, beginning to end. It makes you think “WTF”. Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. We can get surprised by many of our favorite artists because their videos were just “something else” but still enjoyable…somehow. So, here is a list of a few videos (among many others) of awesome songs that were strangely fantastic and made us say, “WTF.” (in a good way)
1. Feel Good Hit of the Summer- Queens of the Stone Age
The video is probably what an acid trip might look like. I say that because the song is most definitely about being on various drugs. The video was super trippy but strangely enjoyable at the same time.
2. Kids – MGMT
This real life and animated video could possibly be one of my favorite videos of all time. Again, the video is super trippy but amazing. There is a poor innocent child in a strange world with a really awful mom.
3. Closer- Nine Inch Nails
I guess we all saw this one coming. Who knows what the heck is going on in this video. The controversial symbols that were shown in the video made it a little strange…and probably pissed off a lot of people.
4. Monster Hospital – Metric
Imagine if this were to happen to you. You put on your favorite record…and then your house tries to kill you. You may never be the same after it…if you live. (although VERY unlikely) This stuff is almost the same plot as most horror movies but includes an amazing song.
5. Happy – Robert Delong
The video starts with Delong playing at the lamest party ever. Soon they start drinking some unidentified liquid and the whole thing turns pretty dark really quick. Moral of the video, make sure you know what you’re drinking before you actually drink it.
6. Virgins – Death From Above 1979
Some of the parts of the video had to be censored if it was shown on television. I guess snorting ashes and bloody bananas are not for everyone.
