Ever wanted to see Mark Ronson on a Japanese talk show in the 70s? Well, director Warren Fu made that happen.


Best bit? Ronson and The Business INTL are joined by MNDR & Q-Tip as they float around in outer space.

 
 
 

This video directed by Nicolas Mendez is definitely NSFW, as it's got nudity and other, well, strange things going on.


Best bit? If you've got a fetish for toe-sucking, then this is the best music video of the year for you.

 
 
 

Another viral vid of 2010, it's now got more than 30 million views on YouTube. Directed by Matt Stawski, this video, like the song, is deceptively sweet.


Best bit? It's now just a little more acceptable to shout out "Fuck you".

 
 
 

NME's best album of 2010 winners These New Puritans also released one of the most beautiful music videos of the year. Director Daniel Askill's cinematography was influenced by ballistics footage.


Best bit?Watch people fly and water splash in slow-motion.

 
 
 

South African cinematographer Rob Malpage co-directed this video with frontman rapper Ninja, creating a video that spread so quickly online that the band's website host disabled their account for exceeding bandwidth.


Best bit? This is the video that launched their career worldwide. Whether or not you think that's a good thing, well, that's up to you.

 
 
 

Dave Ma directed this strange video starring transsexual icons Calpernia Addams and Glamourous Monique, as well as a team of bodybuilders.


Best bit? You can watch women and bodybuilders wrestle. If you're into that.

 
 
 

Andrew and Ben prove to be handymen in this So Me-directed video. The strange box they build comes to live, or something, and strange things start to happen. Like a giant ballerina dancing in the clouds.


Best bit? We get to see Mr. VanWyngarden dressed as a girl. At least he gets to show off his legs.

 
 
 

So she's only ten years old, but she's inspired the latest song-inspired dance craze and looks pretty fierce in her Ray Kay-directed video.


Best bit? If Jackson Pollock had locks like Willow's, we're pretty sure he would have used similar methods to create his paintings.

 
 
 

Indulge your sweet tooth without wasting the calories. Katy Perry's video, directed by Mathew Cullen, takes you into a magical world of gumdrops and candy floss, with Snoop Dogg starring as some pimp Sugar Daddy ringleader.


Best bit? You can see Katy wearing a cupcake bra, if that's your sort of thing.

 
 
 

Possibly one of the most star-studded music videos of the year, it's got everyone from Kanye to Vampire Weekend to Santigold.


Best bit? Besides the fact that this song will be stuck in your head for days, the video's got a hilarious fake cameo from Ms. Streisand.
