Who performed these music videos? Years ago I watched MTV in the early morning when they aired all the zany gainaxy music videos. Three of those stand out in memory for their sheer surreal nexus currency.

The first one is the easiest, in it a man with a gawking face walks into a dimly lit supermarket at night. As he walks though the place shoppers give him dirty looks. However as the video progresses everybody strips, before long they're having a full blown underwear dance party. Notably there are these two dreamy guys who dance around in scanty pink (I think) speedoes. The video snaps back to the gawking man as it was all just a fantasy.
The second one is shot in black and white and very heavily borrows from old old films like King Kong. There's something very close to the scene in that movie where a large hairy arm reaches out to grab the damsel. The music video however ends with St. Peter at the gates of heaven. (Apologies for the choppiness of that paragraph it's been years since I saw it).
The third one is unusually computer animated, like it was filmed with very slick cardboard cutouts. Also very colourful. It's set somewhere sunny in a city with palm trees. At the climax of the video an army of sentient red lips with legs march under a colossal disco ball.
Thank you very much!
