Let me preface this post by making something clear: I don’t watch MTV, VH1, or BET anymore. Haven’t since probably 2003-ish. So any videos coming after that I’ve seen by chance or someone has shown me (mostly someone from YAM). So, no, there will be no Katy Perry on this list… sorry.
With that said, this is clearly a small list and features only videos that I’ve actually seen. Therefore, even as much as I love music, my scope is somewhat limited in terms of actual MVs. I’ve recently become more inclined toward simply listening to the music rather than watching MVs, anyway. With that in mind, I go forth, drubbing up to mind videos that have left an indelible mark on me.
It’s not exactly surprising that some of the most frightening and most glorious music videos have involved food. After all, two of the greatest gifts bestowed upon humanity are food and music. However, there are some videos that manage to take it to a level that even I couldn’t imagine. Everything from artistic to perverse to just plain strange, these five videos have actually done a lot more to influence my interest in art than many of the illustrious canon comprising most galleries around the world.
So without much further ado, I give you the five most twisted and interesting uses of food in MVs that I’ve ever seen.
