Jay Z & Justin Timberlake Slow Things Down, Find New Uses For Bed Sheets In “Holy Grail” Music Video

Holy Grail!
Jay Z & Justin Timberlake Show Things Down, Find New Uses For Bed Sheets In "Holy Grail" Music Video
Watch The Video!

Since Hov only films six-hour performances with his fancy artist friends on special occasions (see: “Picasso Baby”) consider this just released video for “Holy Grail” to be the first true music video off his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. The video features Jay and guest vocalist Justin Timberlake wandering around aimlessly in a poorly lit, gothic warehouse of sorts, where dancers wrapped in white sheets dance to the occasionally slowed down track. Justin really went to town with the flat iron, huh? There’s a champagne glass pyramid and an inexplicable fire too. Maybe Justin got mad that “Holy Grail” is better than every song on The 20/20 Experience so he got all mad and turned into “Firestarter”? Yeah, I said it. [Facebook]

Watch: Robin Thicke’s Music Video For “Give It 2 U,” Featuring 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar & A Whole Lot Of Booty Dancing

Watch: Robin Thicke's New "Give It To U" Video, Featuring 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar & A Whole Lot Of Booty Dancing
"Give It 2 U" Featuring Kendrick Lamar & 2 Chainz

Robin Thicke has found a formula that works for him: Naked girls, plus rappers, plus the Futura font, equals a magical video experience. The video for his new single, “Give It 2 U,” features 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, and brings the scantily clad ladies, previously found employing sheep to cover their naked bosoms, to a football field. The Albany Passionettes and the Alabama State Stingettes — two stellar dance teams — shake their booties, while grown ass women in cotton candy outfits prance around, carrying oversized, paper mache bottles of Brut. There’s a shocking amount of product placement; Thicke swigs from a bottle of Remy Martin, the models are delicately planted around the new Beats by Dr. Dre music players, and there’s a Mini Cooper that gets prime real estate. Thicke positions himself as a campy Lothario, a harmless middle-aged Glenn Quagmire type that you really can’t take seriously — but the song is gooooood.  And here’s what else I like about this video, aside from the song, the dancing and the general lighthearted cheekiness: everyone in the video is given credit. The dance teams are named and the solo dancers are named, giving them a level of subjectivity not often seen in music videos. And I’m certainly not mad at that.

Watch: Pearl Jam’s Music Video For “Mind Your Manners”

Watch: Pearl Jam's Music Video For "Mind Your Manners"
Mind Your Manners!

This weekend is the MTV Video Music Awards, celebrating the year’s best music videos you probably only watched on the web since MTV barely plays video anymore. I have an early suggestion for next year’s Video of the Year: the just released video for Pearl Jam’s new single, “Mind Your Manners,” off their upcoming album, Lightning Bolt. Watch it above — it’s awesome! Natural disasters! Bombs! Eddie Vedder thrashing around! And for nostalgia’s sake, let’s revisit when Pearl Jam won a moon man at the 1993 VMAs for their video for “Jeremy,” after the jump… [Rolling Stone] Keep reading »

Watch This: Avril Lavigne’s New Video Is So, So Weird

Watch This: Avril Lavigne's New Video Is So, So Weird
Yep, She's Making Out With Winnie Cooper

Remember when we saw those pictures of Avril Lavigne and Danica McKellar dressed up as sexy post-apocalyptic punk rock warriors and we were all like, “Umm, what?” Well, the video they were filming (for Avril’s new song “Rock N Roll”) is finished, and when you see it, you will be like, “Um, WHAT?!” In addition to Danica, the video features a BearShark, a dog funeral, a painfully awkward Sony sponsorship, and, perhaps most confusing of all, Billy Zane on a rocket-powered Segway. Push play, if you think you’re rock n’ roll enough to handle it! [NYMag.com]

Listen up y'all!

Who can say what inspired the librarians at the Francis W. Parker School in Chicago to produce this homage to the Beastie Boys 1994 video “Sabotage.” Whatever it is, we are so thrilled they did. Directed by Chicago’s “Mike and Duane Show,” the video is a pitch perfect remake. And that’s not all! Teachers and administrators at the Francis W. Parker school also made these amazing vids… [Vimeo]

"Pray for me."

German electronic songstress Anika makes moody mysterious dance pop. Her latest track, “In the City,” is a ’70s disco-heavy number, and is accompanied by a head-turning video. A young girl is presented with several potential beaus who must audition for her. She chooses a partner based on the quality of their legs. Yes, their legs. The winner gets a bride, and as far as we can tell, a sheep’s head in a plastic bag. Not too shabby. [YouTube]
