There are some goofs in this year’s lineup of MMVA-nominated artists and we love it! While their songs may not be particularly comedic, several MMVA nominated musicians went the silly route for their videos and there are a lot of dorky outfits to show for it.
Below, we’ve rounded up the five funniest videos nominated for MMVAs this year. Take a look, then tune in to the MMVAs this Sunday, June 15 at 9E/6P on Much, CTV and CTV GO to see if they win.
1. Sonreal, Everywhere We Go
SonReal goes full Napoleon Dynamite in this video for “Everywhere We Go,” which snagged MMVA nominations for Video of the Year and Hip Hop Video of the Year, among others. For his goofy parody, the rapper wears a bowl-cut wig, braces, and a turtleneck with a denim vest. So he basically looks like a 1980s mom.
2. Hedley, Anything
Hedley’s “Anything” video opens with a self-consciously “pretentious” monologue, and devolves into greasy, tattoed, naked debauchery. There’s a dude taking a bath in Froot Loops. And a dude taking a bite out of a Barbie doll. This looks like the sort of party Miley Cyrus couldn’t/wouldn’t be able to stop hanging out at.
3. Keys N Krates, Dum Dee Dum
What would Mennonites make of electronic music? That’s the premise behind Keys N Krates’ mockumentary video for “Dum Dee Dum,” which follows director Mike Howey as he makes a bunch of Mennonites listen to his iPod. Unsurprisingly, they dig it.
4. D-Sisive, Friend of Mine
D-Sisive gets a Mini Me in the video for “Friend of Mine,” which features his cute kid doppelganger (in glasses, of course) lip-synching the whole song. The little munchkin even has a fake sleeve to make him look more like the rapper himself.
5. Classified ft. B.o.B., Higher
Classified’s video for Higher pays homage to John Hughes’ teen sci-fi classic Weird Science, which is apparently getting a full-blown remake sometime in the near-ish future. In this version, however, there’s more weed. A lot more.
