8. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, "Can't Hold Us"

"Can't Hold Us" is the Dr. Zhivago of over-the-top inanity – an epic video journey to end all epic video journeys that featured more different kinds of weather than any other video this year. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis spoof the idea of high budget hip-hop promo tours by carrying an actual flag emblazoned with the title of their album The Heist as they party their way around the globe – over snowcapped mountains and exotic beaches, on a pirate ship, through busy city streets (via camel), finally winding up in their native Seattle. It's a hilarious metaphor for their DIY success story.
