Sia continues her video streak of using dance to elucidate emotions and tell stories, this time with Julianne Moore as a narrator and Zoe Saldana portraying a pregnant woman who learns that she has AIDS and all the risks she, and her unborn child, now face.
All proceeds from the track support endhiv.com and its mission to find a cure.
"Buried" is a nightmarish mystery about a missing person, a pregnancy, a bloody rampage and the cycle of life. It's creepy enough to either be your new favorite horror video, or a way to convince kids to practice abstinence.
Hell hath no fury like a furry. Directors David Wilson and Christy Karacas, of Adult Swim, presents an epic battle between lawless furry mascots and a resourceful convenience store clerk in a video so brutal that things occasionally flip to animation so as to accomodate all the gore.
Welcome to Fall Fest, as hosted by Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk and film director Edgar Wright. Despite the intergallactic leanings of all involved, things are kept fairly natural as they pay homage to the breeziest element.

First off, don't pay attention to the bullshit headlines about Johnny Depp being in the new Paul McCartney video. Not that they aren't true — he has a cameo in a performance set-up with Sir Paul and some blues musicians — but we've been there and done that.

In this case, Johnny Depp is the least notable thing about this video, which I mean as a compliment to all involved.
"Early Days" imagines the story of a rock band from the roots-up, sprouting to life far away from money and fame — and far away from The Beatles' Liverpool hometown.
