One bloke sharing his favourite wacky music videos led me to see some of the strangest shit of my life. Good tunes tho.
On the EDM subreddit, u/boksysocks shared a meme shouting out "quirky somewhat nonsensical EDM videos," adding they "gotta be one of my favourite genres."
There are a total of 15 music videos in that meme and I watched every single one of them (on x2 speed, I've got things to do). Anyway, they're all not ya stock standard MV, but I just wanted to quickly highlight the strangest five.
'Horses' by Salvatore Ganacci
This one starts with people at a cabin staring into the camera as they attack CGI animals. A granny is punching a lion while a young guy is ramming his car into a panda over and over again. These attacks aren't gorey or violent, just creepy.
Salvatore, a Swedish Jesus-looking dude who made the tune, senses this and drives a massive shoe to the cabin and does exactly to the humans what they did to the animals.
'Uebok (Gotta Run)' by Apashe ft Instasamka
A man tells his mates how his trip to Russia went.
It turns out he was chased by a tank, went shirtless hunting in the forest and hugged a bear, among other wild things.
'Delta' by C2C
We're thrust into an animated world where a mysterious upside-down pyramid flies above a civilization that’s straight outta 'Dune'.
They go to war with the pyramid and it's not an easy fight. This one has cool animation and it's not necessarily weird like the others but it's creative and sick AF.
'Crab Rave' by Noisestorm
🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀 YOU ALREADY KNOW🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀
It's turned into a meme which can't be said for too many other music videos. That's how you know it's odd.
'Ghost' by Delta Heavy
In this one, we immediately see Clippy from Microsoft Office looking a bit down in the dumps in some weird computer Mars world where Nelson Mandela is also chilling. He then hops into a wormhole and is sent through the different ages of the internet in a very chaotic way.
Eventually, the paperclip becomes the most famous thing in the world, with everyone from One Direction to the pope having a bitta him.
Look, these ones are strange, but at least they ain't way too horny!
