CAMEO ALERT! CAMEO ALERT!
I don’t know about you but celebrity cameos in music videos really draw me in. Especially if the theme of the music video is way out of their element. And not gonna lie, star power really makes for a good promotion for the artist and definitely raises those album sales. Maybe this was Brandon Flower‘s aim for his upcoming SOLO album, with the single Crossfire featuring the svelte and daring Charlize Theron as the heroine beating the bejesus out of ninjas, or maybe not. The nunchucks, the awezum kicking-ass Theron saving the hapless Flowers, who in the end gets abducted isn’t the most original formula but it works. Who could blame him when you get to work with someone like HER?

Took me so long to look for this I keep forgetting the title haha.
And that’s about a quarter of my favorite music videos with cameos. There’s still that Paula Abdul one with Keanu Reeves and of course, Michael Jackson’s Remember the Time but this post is long enough. Enjoy, as I did watching these videos all over again!
PS I miss old MTV.
