Best of the Year 2010: Music video

Director: James Frost
These guys have become an annoyance. Awful, unoriginal music. And, this machine is obviously fixed! Last time we'll ever hear from them, save from a commercial spot. Worst thing about their videos is the band members trying to tolerate the music.

Directors: Simon Ward, Don Brooker and Luke Rowell

Das Racist

Director: Thomas De Napoli
