Think back on all the amazing music videos that have been created over the years. Think of Spike Jonze’s Praise You for Fatboy Slim, John Landis with the Thriller video or Steve Barron’s illustrative work for a-ha’s Take on Me. Think of the beautiful simplicity of seeing Sinead O’Connor weeping in Nothing Compares 2U. Then wipe your mind of all that brilliance and prepare yourself for something different… Something… Better..?

Out of time rapping, unfeasible dancing, hands-on-hips and excellent use of green screen technology go some way to making this one of our favourite musical moments of all time. It’s less rapping, more shouting out words that sound the same.

Just watch out for the bit where he flies like a bird. Or is on safari, with himself. We don’t know why there are flying children everywhere either.

‘This is the story of a King and his quest for a mighty sword, with the power to forge a new nation; a kingdom of metal.’ Need we say more? Just that the singer looks a bit like somebody’s Dad and the bass player works a mean tank top. This video is epic.

We want to know what your worst ever video are! Either tweet us a link @UOEUROPE or leave a comment. We’re going to pull together our most awful blog post yet!
