4. Sir Mix-A-Lot, "Baby Got Back"
When Rick Rubin encouraged one of his American Records artists, Sir Mix-A-Lot, to release his uptempo ode to backsides as a single, he also handpicked the video's director, Adam Bernstein, who had helmed quirky clips for They Might Be Giants and the B-52's. "[Mix-A-Lot] really wanted a giant ass in the video, and he wanted to be coming out of it," Bernstein recalled in Vulture's recent oral history of the song. "I suggested that maybe wasn't a great idea."
