Help me find fast songs with slow videos

I'm looking for examples of music videos in which the tempo of the song is totally different to the tempo of the visual edit. Any suggestions?

Specifically I am interested in videos for uptempo songs which are generally much slower on a visual level (i.e.: fewer edits; longer shots; slow motion; basically less kinetic in general) but I would be happy to hear about slow songs with fast videos.
I'm not necessarily interested in only getting examples of videos which manage successfully to contrast the speeds of the music and visuals, I want to see any where this has been attempted. Extra points, though, if you can offer an opinion as to whether the video works or not, and why.
