Maybe my favorite video ever would be Foo Fighter's My Hero It's not a flashy video but it makes me a tear up a bit every time I watch it.
Some recent videos:
Tyler, The Creator - Yonkers I feel this is one of the most visually arresting videos to come out in recent memory. I remember when this first dropped, I was at a party with some friends in my dorm and someone put this on. We huddled around a laptop and sat silently, stunned by what we were watching. For months after that the beat from Yonkers could be heard daily echoing through the halls, since several aspiring rappers were apparently trying to record their own mixtape version.
Dikembe - We Could Become River Rats Not much to say about this one, it's just an entertaining video for a very good song.
