Rihanna used to irritate the hell out of me with her umbrella song and I feel its fair to say now that she has evolved into better music productions and mixed with many other notable artists which has also helped her to establish herself today.
Fledgling arsonists will love this vid from US pop punk band, Fall Out Boy. It embarks on a bizarre premise: hire a couple of great looking girls to assist a mean-ass dude in the combustion of expensive musical equipment. An odd ‘burning the music’ homage perhaps, but somehow fitting with the driving track (that in places sounds more like an 80’s rock anthem than anything derived from a punk origin).
Keeping on the theme of setting stuff alight from the Fall Out Boy review here we see Snoop with partners in crime, Popcaan & Mavado on a video outing to seemingly enrage anti-smoking campaigners.
Whatever you think about the underlying message, the Caribbean Rastafarian culture and sultry tropical atmosphere is beautifully captured. As with much of Snoop’s work, he moves through edgy territory, in this case asking us to light up and get high with him. But it’s just Snoop doing what he does - all effortless and with an easy reggae vibe in keeping with the colourful images.

R&B singer, Marques Houston’s video for his latest track Speechless is a good example of what to do if the crew is stumped for locations with only a modest budget available: book the floor of hotel and a stunning model and take it from there.
This commercial just oozes style warmth and vibrant colour - shot with some clever lighting and lenses no doubt. And the classical mode of going by train in India. I love it - will look out for some REAL videos of train travel in india for comparison..
