The video is cheap crap. The music is a simpleton rap with lyrics that sound like they came out of a rhyming dictionary. The swearing does nothing except to add to how hollow the entire act is. Honestly, these guys are like some bizzare sketch show joke where PJ & Duncan play KISS pretending to be The Fresh Prince.

Absolutely dreadful. Threadbait this criminal deserves corporal punishment.

that's the beauty. How great is the line "F'ing magnets, how do they work?"

Combine the awesomely awful lines with the bizarre green screen images, the overly saccharine message and juxtapose this over the gratuitous profanity and dark clown image and it's just too perfectly awful.

At first I thought it was an intentional parody, but then I realized it's actually real and they legitimately thought this was deep and meaningful. Which makes it even better.

It gets my vote. Not every day you get to see a hardcore hip-hop duo painted like hardcore mimes rapping about trees and ****in' shooting stars in front of 90s special effects.

And ****in' rainbows. I love ****in' rainbows.

Wherever the music takes me
First, 'time' has not ended. Yet.

Second, best so far would be, imo, A-Ha's Take On Me or Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer.

In addition to a few already mentioned, I'll also nominate this piece from one band notorious for way-over-the-top rock'n'roll theatrics (and not failing to deliver here):

THE DAMNED - Wendy O. Williams and the Plasmatics (1982)
