Friday Night Videos: Bad Trip

matchbox twenty: Unwell (2003)

How do you write this band’s name? Matchbox 20? matchbox 20? Anyway, I will admit that a YouTube flash movie is not the best way to see this vertiginous video, but it’s what I’ve got. Look past Rob Thomas and note all of the nifty things going on in the background. Plus the CGI version of the dog is adorable, even if his skeleton is a little scary.

P!nk: Just Like A Pill (2002)

Wait, rock stars take drugs? And occasionally write songs in which drug use is a metaphor for something else? As for the video itself, the running scenes crack me up every time. At least all the refugees from the Laurell K. Hamilton novels get a brief dance scene at the end.

    Man… I’m losing it. Why did I never realize there was a banjo in that song until I see the fellow plaing it in the video? Just for the record, he’s doing up-picking, or Scruggs style. (I’m a clawhammer player) And I laugh at the cameo of Willy Wonka in the Pink video, along with the strategically placed black X’s.
