This hapless fellow in Cameron Duddy's superbly bonkers video for OneRepublic's Something I Need, thinks he's struck lucky. But he hasn't factored in for the rabid dog...Ouch. And double ouch...And then Ryan from OneRepublic gets to perform with the choir at his funeral. And that dog still isn't done...

So if you thought Wrecking Ball was a bit much, wait till you get a load of this...Actually, don't worry. Or your hopes up. Miley's alleged gift to the world for surpassing her previous YouTube views record is a 'Director's Cut' that doesn't have more saucy bits. Instead, it doesn't have any.That's right, you'll just have to make do with the other one for hammer-licking. This is just her emoting to camera in full close-up, just like Sinead O'Connor in Nothing Compared 2 U, and all that. And the only respite is an appearance from Terry Richardson himself, the clever self-publicist that he is...

Gal Muggia's video for Israeli actor and singer Ester Rada's Life Happens starts out as a well-shot performance piece, with the twist that Ester is playing every instrument on the MidEast jazz/funk/pop track. But that's just the start.Gal then introduces a range of inventive FX that takes the video to another level: Ester multiplies, then grows additional limbs while drumming, playing sax, and so on. A resourceful exercise in visual wit to demonstrate the singer's alluring qualities. She's got special powers.

Uh oh. How does Miley Cyrus follow up the brouhaha of her controversial performance at the 2013 VMAs? Of course! She gets controversial photographer Terry Richardson to direct her next video, for Wrecking Ball. And thus, she gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'It's hammer time'. Miley gets naked on a said wrecking ball - quite an image, and indeed quite beautiful. But then, the real purpose is to arouse the audience, for good or bad, and hence the licking the hammer shot. All in all, quite a decent alternative to porn.
