Cake: Short Skirt/Long Jacket (2001)
I can imagine John McCrea, the director, hearing the song and saying, “What kind of video can I do for this? Geez, I guess I’ll just film other people listening to the song and reacting. Hey! Hey! Is that it?
Alanis Morissette: Hands Clean (2002)
This video makes reference to the story told by the lyrics, but mainly it’s about the life cycle a pop hit, from initial concept through recording, making a video, and finally karaoke.
