Looking for a music video

I'm trying to remember the name of an animated music video that concerns three men in a mental hospital. They comically escape in order to carve their names into a tree, then steal the guards' car that come after them. It may have been by a French group but I'm not confident about that. [more inside]

Music video with whitewater kayaking and a puppet

I'm looking for a music video and can't remember the artist or title for the life of me. It has a guy paddling whitewater in a kayak camouflaged in branches with a Muppet-like puppet. I think he was playing a banjo and also paddled with it. If memory serves, it was filmed in Nova Scotia and it's about 4-5 years old. My toddler has been asking to see kayaking videos and I think he'd love this one! I remember liking the song, too. Thanks for any help!

Grime (?) video of people driving boxes?

I saw a music video which I think was a grime video (it's been a while, so maybe I'm mistaken) which had two musicians driving what looked like cardboard boxes around a computer graphic background. The musicians faces/hands/necks were darkened. I believe they had sunglasses on. The colors were highly saturated/day-glo. Anyone know wot I'm talkin' about?

Name that Music Video: '80s New Wave/Pop Edition

The band is playing in the middle of a (house) party and the video pans around the party. I want to say I remember there being general 80s weirdness/fashion and maybe some skulls? I also want to say the song was one of those that could seem like a double-entendre for masturbation, or else kind of sexually suggestive in some way; unfortunately googling "80s songs about masturbation" didn't help. Also, the band may or may not have been British. Can anyone decipher which song I'm thinking about?

Who is this actor?

Hoping someone can identify the woman who plays the mom in the music video for Halsey's "Colors." I recognize her from something (I want to say a short film or a commercial?) and I can't figure out what -- it's driving me nuts! She appears at 21 seconds in the video or you can see her face in this screen grab. Thanks!

Please help me remember that Adele (or maybe Amy Winehouse) song...

I've been looking through entirely too many links on youtube in an effort to find the Adele (or maybe Amy Winehouse) video that features her standing at a microphone singing in a mostly empty room. From memory, the room is light blue or light green and other than her, there's a fireplace behind her, maybe a chandelier and a piano. I think the video was almost entirely of her standing there singing. Can any Adele fans please help me find that video?

Random "Pop-Up Video" memory about a sticky bun

I was watching an old rerun of "Pop-Up Video" and was reminded of a strange non sequitur in a late '90s VH1 Pop-Up Video I remember seeing as a kid. I can't remember anything about the song, but there was a completely random mention of a sticky bun that had nothing to do with the video. What was it? [more inside]

Trying to remember the name of a rock song/video...

I'm trying to remember the name of a rock song that was released perhaps as long as eight years ago. In the video are several high school males who lose their tempers; I don't think that the song is by Andrew WK, but as I recall it'd be classified in the same genre. Please help.

Trippy music video featuring a train with special effects?

I'm trying to find a trippy music video featuring a train. The whole video follows the train for the most part. As the music gets more elaborate, the train gets a bunch of effects including changing its color and brightness. Another music video by the same band involved a fake PSA or television broadcast that devolves into a song. Does any of this ring a bell? I think the band was electronic, but don't quote me on that.

Woman dancing in the Berlin Chair film clip

Help me find this music video?

I recently watched a music video with someone, and am trying to locate it. It features a highly photogenic man and a woman in their 20s/30s wandering around sunlit fields, looking at various objects. At one point something happens involving the woman in front of car headlights, and perhaps a horse head(?). I think it was probably filmed relatively recently, less than 5 years ago, and the music is probably from a smaller independent band. The band name was probably two words, and the song title was one word, if that helps.

What is that retro music video of a russian man going to outer space?

I can remember the man had a mustache and long brown hair, maybe sunglasses. Very robotic voice. Playing the keyboard and singing about going into space. Trying to be quite serious but obviously a very silly act. At some point he counts down dramatically and then the woman starts singing. Terrible green screening with some hilariously bad video delaying. VHS quality. I've been trying to find this for ages! Sound familiar?

What was it called?

Hi! First post and I'm not sure if this is the right place for it but this is driving me crazy. I'm trying to find a music video from a few years ago. I can't remember the name of the artist or the song. There's a guy in it and he runs around New York tagging his name all over the place and there's a chase scene set in a revolving door. He steals stuff from everyone. A glove, a flower. I think he gives the flower to a homeless guy. He has curly hair and he's wearing a scarf over his mouth at the beginning. He meditates in Central Park and levitates for a little while and then he goes back to running around.

Trying to remember a scene from a music video

What is this scene from a music video? It's driving us crazy ... it was a little skit that (we think) happened at the beginning of a video. It was set in a grocery store, was funny, and the only line we can remember is "you're the (something)est green grocer I ever did see" ... which we think was punctuated by a loud, "Honey!" Thought it was David Lee Roth, but might be misremembering the opening of the "Yankee Rose" video, which is not it.

How did they do the camera move in this old Cabaret Voiltaire video?

Ever since I saw the video for Cabaret Voltaire's Sensoria a gazillion and nine years ago, I've wondered how they accomplished that freaky, vertiginous camera move. You see it at the beginning of the video, with lots of quick little inserted shots to break it up, but then it turns up again a few times later without any cuts. It seems like the camera is on an overhead track, but you never see a track as the camera is swooping around. Was it on some sort of a crane? The shot's wide enough that it would seem like you would see the crane off on one side or the other. (If you've never heard the song, plan to spend a good part of your work day tomorrow muttering, "Do right... Always work... Go to church.")

Help me find this K-POP / J-POP video I vaguely remember seeing!

I really want to share this video I saw a while ago with a friend, for injoke purposes. But I dunno how to find it! Help! I believe it to be either Korean or Japanese pop music. I have little to no memory of the actual song, just the video. 3, maybe 4 East-Asian ladies. Strolling along a sidewalk, holding shopping bags, walking past upscale store windows. The sidewalk moves underneath them, kind of like an omnidirectional conveyor belt. I can remember no other details, really. Other than it was filmed in a studio (obviously), yet gives the impression of being filmed outside via lighting, and there were a lot of pastel shades going on. Oh, and the women are wearing heels.

What was this music video I saw?

Couple years ago I saw a music video. It was taken in a single shot, one guy dancing/singing with a microphone stand on a stage/sound set, ended with light bulbs exploding in slow mo, still part of the single shot. It kind of reminded me of Talking Heads/Stop Making Sense, both musically and visually. This was probably around 2008. Any ideas what I saw?

It was a lot better than the current video

I'm almost positive that when Wolf Like Me, by TV on The Radio, was first released as a single it had a video that featured a Little Red Riding Hood motif where the parts of red and the wolf were inverted, and is entirely different from the current video. I can't find this, although I'm pretty sure I didn't imagine it. Did it exist? Was it a fan edit? Did it infringe on some copyright and get expunged from the Internet? Help!
