7. Beach House, "Wishes"
Produced by Eric Wareheim (of Tim and Eric) and starring Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, Robocop, Mad Men), this clip by synthy indie-pop duo Beach House was where Friday Night Lights met David Lynch. Wise pretends to sings the song on a stage during what appears to be a high school football halftime show that turns into a kind of pagan pep rally – complete with boys dressed as Roman soldiers, self-spanking, cartwheel spinning cheerleaders and the vague suggestions that the whole thing might end with a raffle to determine which lucky fan will be sacrificed to some sort of locally recognized horse deity after the game. At the end, Wise mounts a white stallion to sing the aching ballad's final chorus and the crowd goes wild. It's just your average small town sports night in Anywhereville, America.
