What are some great comedy music videos?

Yesterday's AskMe about iconic music videos mentioned The Lonely Island's "I'm on a Boat!" which I'd never heard of before. I thought the video was hilarious. What are your favorite comedy music videos?

Give me your loud, righteous, angry and pissed off music

All the owners of apartments in the block I live in are about to be up for a lot of money due to the fault of others. Music is my stress relief but there are only so many times I can listen to Killing In the Name or the song I won't name from Aenima. I have a broad library of music, apparently it's a little shallow in this area. Hook me up, tinnitus be damned. I listen to any and every genre and have a good sound system that'll do justice to anything at 100db.

What are the definitive music videos of the last 10-ish years?

I feel like the music video had a high point in the '90s and then I stopped paying attention. Please recommend me 2 or 3 videos from the last while that are must-see, be it for artistry, originality, infamy, whatever. Context would be appreciated. I have seen This Is America.

My city is experiencing a bus service meltdown that appears to have been totally avoidable. I learned about it through a local daily free paper and a local blog, but the city's paper of record has not seen fit to cover the story. I'm pisssssssssed and would like to let the world know about it. Should I write to the paper asking them to cover it OR should I submit a letter to the editor? [more inside]

A sideways kind of love

I'd like to make a sweet + fun Spotify playlist for my gem of a partner, but my knowledge of good songs for this is very scant. Said partner is extremely warm, kind, and sentimental, but expresses it in very sideways or wry/humorous ways - a direct eye contact + I LOVE YOU SO MUCH is just not their style! [more inside]

Movies for headaches (dream edition)

I just had a dream about a movie that was a quiet (that is, without the most annoying of the pythonesque) British or Scandinavian comedy in documentary format without a laughtrack. From 30 years ago or appearing to be. Think along the lines of Look Around You or Fishing with John—though I don’t actually like either of those. Can you recommend anything like this?
