Music Videos

Although Spike started off doing skateboard filming, and he's still really involved with that industry, he's really branched out over the last couple of years into short films and commercials, but I think he's made the most impact making music videos.


And, of course everyone's seen Fat Boy Slim's "Praise You", which is being touted by MTV and Much Music as being the most original video ever. It takes place in the lobby of a movie theater, with a slightly out of date dance troupe bustin' out some b-boy moves. Spike, as the leader of the pack, definitely makes the video worth watching. Dance bad and look good with all the moves from Fatboy Slim's "Praise You" video!


Sean Lennon's "Home"

X's "Country at War", where "Michael Monk plays an old man Schlepping a bag of groceries down the sidewalk, and Jim Monk plays a suited yuppie tipping the band a few bills as X performed on a street corner in Glendale, California..." (from The Monks' homepage).


Daft Punk's "Da Funk" hit it big in 1998, and has to be credited with at least some of Daft Punk's popularity. It features a man (or, I guess, a man with a big dog head) who runs into an old friend in a convenience store in New York City.

"Daughter of the Kaos" by Luscious Jackson

Pavement's "Shady Lane"

Chemical Brothers' "Elektrobank" has Spike's girlfriend Sofia Coppola as a gymnast.

Notorious B.I.G. w/112 "Sky's the Limit"

Mike Watt "Liberty Calls"

Puff Daddy and the Family w/the Fuzzbubble "Benjamin's Rock Remix" takes place at a prom, where somewhat conservative promgoers show their true colours (and leather).


"Drop" by the Pharcyde, which features cameos from the Beastie Boys. "The entire video was shot in reverse (the Pharcyde did all movements backwards, right down to the lyrics.) This meticulous process blew me out the water when I saw the video a couple of years back. It was fascinating and one of most brilliant videos, with images that didn't seem possible, and all done before anyone else really started to do stuff like that." -Darrell Dudley


Wax's "California" features a man running around in slow motion on fire, and "Who is Next?", co-directed by Jake from Squirt TV.

Bjork's "It's Oh So Quiet", based on Jacques Demy's 1964 film Parapluies de Cherbourg, (along with Kenny Addison) is, in my opinion, the best music video ever made.

Mike Watt's "Big Train"

Elastica's "Car Song"

Co-directed Sonic Youth's "The Diamond Sea"


Ween's "Spirit of 76", where Ween are being taken out of a courthouse amidst a crowd of photographers and protesters.

In Dinosaur Jr's "Feel the Pain", J. Mascis is seen golfing at various points around New York City.

Velocity Girl's "I Can't Stop Smiling"

MC 900 Ft. Jesus' "If I Only Had a Brain"

REM's "Crush With Eyeliner"

"Old Timer" by That Dog

Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" (nominated for 4 MTV Music Awards), a play on those cheesy '70s cop shows, "Sure Shot", "Root Down", and "Time for Livin'", which is basically some live Beastie Boys footage and skateboarding shots.

Soundgarden's "My Wave"

Weezer's "Undone (The Sweater Song)" and "Buddy Holly", which is probably Spike's most famous video because of its ingenious setting of Weezer in "Happy Days". Also features a memorable shot of the Fonz doing the splits.


The skate footage in Sonic Youth's "100%" video, which he was asked to do by Mike D's wife Tamra Davis (who co-directed)

Teenage Fanclub's "Hang On"

The Breeder's "Cannonball", co-directed by Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon, and "Divine Hammer".

Rocket From the Crypt's "Ditch Digger" If you know of any films, videos commercials, and especially skate videos that I've missed, please let me know! Thanks. Also feel free to send reviews or your thoughts/descriptions of particular videos and I'll try and post them.
