Viral Video Vendredi – September 9, 2011

It’s video Friday again; and this time, it’s the Funkasaurus Rex edition:

All three videos are from the band the Black Keys 2010 album “Brothers”.  I was first introduced to the band in the summer of 2007 when the two piece sounded HUGE at Lollapalooza.  The band certainly takes their music seriously, but they have lots of fun with their Videos.  Up first is a video for the song “Tighten Up” from Brothers that was released a few months before the ‘official‘ (but also funny) video came out:

Frank the Funkasaurus Rex really liked pushing the album, so he got a bigger budget for his next video showcasing the song Next Girl:

Frank was unfortunately relegated to a non-dancing cameo role in my favorite music video from the past 12 months, Howlin’ For You.  The video premiered on IMDB as the trailer for the film of the same name, but has since made it over to the YouTube.  I can’t believe that Foo Fighters beat out this video at the MTV VMA’s this year; behold it, in its awesomeness:

 

Hopefully, I’ll get around to actually adding something to this blog other than linking to videos in the coming year.
