6. Perfume Genius, "Queen"

Directed by Ssion/Cody Critcheloe
Perfume Genius' Mike Hadreas wrote "Queen" about "gay panic," and so the accompanying video features Hadreas taking every fear to its outrageous conclusion.  In just four minutes, he struts in heels on a conference table, turns an office full of papers and computer monitors into a Christmas-y dance party and has a bathroom encounter with a one-legged Elvis. This parody of the anxieties surrounding queer sexuality manages to drive home a political point without losing any sense of fun or edge.
